I got this as a free sample in my last Della Terra order, I was very pleased I got this one, because it was almost in my order! I had a cup a few weeks ago but forgot to log it, so I will now, as this is most definitely an Eastery tea due to the name!

I was unsure of what to expect looking at the dry blend. There were a few peas, quite a bit of corn, some carrot bits, and the tea itself. The peas had me the most worried, because I really hate cooked peas (raw are delicious though, and pea pods are fine haha). But the dry smell is pleasantly peachy and very light. I steeped for 2 minutes. The steeped smell is peach once again, but with a different, full smell from the vegetables. I think it’s the corn that’s causing it. It smells quite mouthwatering and refreshing.

The taste is very light and quite delicious. First I get a wonderful mouthfeel, kind of thick yet light, from the vegetables. There’s a mild corn taste, and mid-sip the peach really shines. The tea base goes perfectly with this blend as well. The aftertaste tapers off and leaves a clean feeling in the mouth. I don’t get much lemongrass anywhere, but this tea is still pretty good!

Overall, an interesting tea, I wasn’t sure what I would get with so many vegetables in the blend. But they add more to the feel of the tea rather than any strong veggie flavors, and the peach brings it together nicely. Thanks for the sample Della Terra!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (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 was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

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 have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
