While Della Terra has a lot of really unique and tasty dessert teas, I’ve found that I really adore their fruity blends the best. Their Mother of Pearl is SO amazing, I could drink it all the damn time and be happy. So of course in my second order I had to pick up an ounce of this, since it’s gotten such good reviews and I do love mango. I’ve also learned recently that I like peach teas as well, when they’re done right.

I cold brewed this overnight in the fridge, and wow! Not Mother of Pearl wow, but still really really tasty. The peach is the most prominent flavor to me, with mango coming in at the end of the sip. The peach isn’t overpowering though, and you can also taste the base and a bit of the floral taste from the rose petals. Iced it is just perfect, so fruity and juicy! I love when fruit teas do taste like they have some juice squeezed in, it amazes me that flavoring can have this effect yet it does. Mmm! Definitely a winner, and I think I’ll need to have this an MoP in my cupboard at all times. Maybe I’ll even mix them together…

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
