I got a sample of this tea from Shelley_Lorraine. I was excited to try this one – it’s my first from Della Terra, and the blend itself sounded so whimsical.
Dry, the tea smells a lot like Republic of Tea’s Ginger Peach – it’s reminiscent of those gummy candy peaches more than it is of the actual fruit. I’ve always found Ginger Peach’s aroma to be pleasant, but, as with so many RoT blends, the flavor is disappointingly weak.
That said, I’m pleasantly surprised by the strength of flavor here. The dominant note is definitely gummy peach, although the green base (sencha?) provides some distinct – and pleasant – vegetal undertones. And it’s a good thing it does, because I’m not picking up much from the veggie additions themselves. Same for the lemongrass.
This was a fun tea to try but – aesthetics aside – not a distinctive one. It’s not a blend I’ll be purchasing, although I did enjoy my cup.
