Yum! I think this is the best Della Terra Tea I’ve tried so far! The dry leaf smells fragrant and perfume-like. I didn’t detect any really artificial smelling things like DTT’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, which was a relief.

On first taste it oddly tastes like cactus pear, especially since it feels so thick in the mouth. I guess that’s due in part to the cactus flowers? I did a double-take and had to look at the ingredient list to make sure I hadn’t skipped over cactus pear in the list. As I kept sipping I started tasting the fruit flavors and it started tasting less like cactus pear, but it still tasted good. I’m glad the peach flavor didn’t overpower the whole thing like in a Rabbit’s Garden. The after-taste is a little tart, but not bitter.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
