Haha i didn’t know if I should log this under its original name or this one. Picked this one as it showed up in my steepster feed yesterday :p, although I purchased it back when it was vanilla pineapple white (and neglected to log, my bad!)

This tea smells so sweet and yummy! It vaguely reminds me of a sugary breakfast cereal, but I think that the vanilla and pineapple mixing. It smells delicious though, and makes me want to gobble it up! I steeped the full three minutes this time. Oh, and the leaves are soo pretty and delicate! I love how they unfurl, I showed these leaves to my mom back when I first had this tea at her place and she thought they looked so nice!

The wet leaves smell just as delicious! I can pick out the ingredients a bit better though, separate the pineapple and vanilla, and the green tea is underlying the sweetness. Lots of vanilla though, a very tasty vanilla smell. Mmmmm so happy I’m having this in the morning!

The flavor is so nommy, vanilla with a slightly pineapple aftertaste. I definitely can taste the green tea in here, but it is tempered by the white to keep the cup pretty light. I might try a bit shorter steeping to see if it can be even lighter and fluffier. Also would like maybe a wee bit more of the peppercorns, they are present in a slight warming sensation, but not quite as strong as in Mayan Mist (which is probably a good thing actually, this tea is much more delicate than that one).

Overall, this tea is pretty darn delicious. For being a green and white blend, it is still very delicate and delicious. I feel like I should be having a pastry with this, or small sandwiches :). This might end up being a re-purchase as it’s really enjoyable. Very good white tea from Della Terra! Recommend this!

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
