Easter is coming up fast and I thought this blend would be the perfect tea to mark the occasion with. I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home with my husband and son, where per usual I'll be cooking up a feast and eating more food than any one person should. The past few holidays have been the first few I've been able to stay home and cook the holiday feast, it's been a nice change of pace since I don't have to rush around to see everyone, but I do miss being home with my friends and family.
This tea first caught my eye last year as I was browsing Della Terra's website, the catchy name caught my eye, but the ingredient list just seemed so odd and I decided not to order it. Even so, it still ended up in my stash thanks to a very generous Steepster member, she sent it to me over the summer in a very generous mystery box of tea. Even though this is part of Della Terra's spring collection it tends to remind me more of summer. I suppose that is because I notice the rabbits in the garden more that time of year, that's when they do the most damage in their quest to unearth all of my carrots.
If it managed to escape your notice, this blend has carrots in it, as well as peas, corn and peaches; it makes for one very colorful and somewhat unusual tea. I'll admit, I was having a hard time getting past the whole there are veggies in my tea thing. I half expected it to be more of a savory tea than one suited to springtime, but the flavor ended up surprising me. Rather than savory the corn, carrots, and peach add a sweetness that went surprisingly well with the green base. I tried this tea hot, but it is another blend that I think would make a refreshing iced tea, unfortunately the weather is still a bit on the nippy side and I'm still drinking copious amounts of hot tea to keep warm. I can't believe that it is the middle of April and I'm still waiting on warm weather to arrive.
My Rating: 70/100
Would I order this again? No, but it sure was interesting to try.
