Leaf Type: White/Green Tea Blend
Where to Buy: Della Terra Teas
A smooth, flavorful blend of vanilla and pineapples with Pai Mu Tan white tea.
Eventho Snow Fairy Tea From Della Terra Teas is currently out of stock I thought it was still worth a mention. Snow Fairy Tea From Della Terra Teas has the following ingredients within the loose leaf tea mixture…Pai Mu Tan White Tea, Chinese Green Tea, Vanilla Bits and flavor, Apple Bits, Pineapple Bits, and Red Peppercorns.
I love that this is a perfectly blended green tea and white tea blend. The green tea to white tea ratio couldn’t be more even-steven! The vanilla flavors are not overdone and contribute nicely to the overall flavor of this blended tea. The red peppercorns have a subtle punch but they lay quiet and comfortable in the background. The apple bits and pineapple bits are appreciated and very much welcome. They put this blended tea over the edge with their sweet and tart notes.
Snow Fairy Tea From Della Terra Teas may be one of my favorites from this company! I hope they get it back in stock at some point!

Peach Melba from Mahamosa Gourmet Teas, Spices, and Herbs is a sweet, tangy, treat.
I want to address the hibiscus in this blend. Its done so well! I am not one to favor hibiscus in any amount. I see no need for it 99% of the time, however in this blend it actually does something good! To begin, it provides the right amount of tart to make this rather sweet tea balanced. Secondly, it does not cover all the other flavors in the tisane.
Often times I think tea companies add hibiscus because it is so inexpensive and helps to expand the blend, however in this case Mahamosa has done right by this blend.
The peach flavor comes through nicely and the creamy flavor is present. The apple flavors taste as if they were fresh apples picked right from the teas in an orchard! The elderberries, which I love, happen to have a very fresh and slightly tart flavor too but that is okay because there is a deep sweetness in this tea that needs a dash of sour, and tart to help it stay down to earth.
If you enjoy this tea hot you simply must try some on ice! It is something I can see myself serving in place of juice this summer and far more healthy!

Everyone needs a Caribbean Holiday from time-to-time and after the winter we had in the eastern snowbelt of the U.S. this tisane was perfect timing when I first started sipping on it – the end of March!
This is another new release from Souvia!
Normally I don’t usually like fruity herbally tisanes because they are too sweet or fruity or tart or full of hibiscus BUT…this is nice!
This is a TREAT! It tastes like liquid candy! This doesn’t have hibiscus in it! YAY!
The purple/red you may see is beet root. Sure…it’s tarty and fruity but the sugary and candied fruits help counteract that. I’m think this would be best iced but it’s pretty tasty hot today, too!
Yup! The key is the candied and granulates ingredients! And I’m not going to lie…I grabbed one of the lemon granulates and gnawed on it while the rest infused!
If you are looking for a fruity tisane without hibiscus…this is a WINNER! If you are looking for a quick escape from daily hustle-bustle…give this a whirl…it brings that HAPPY PLACE to YOU!

Green tea with a touch of cinnamon and apple makes this a satisfying cup. A great choice over ice in the summer too!.
Ingredients: green tea, apple bits, cinnamon, flavoring
This is really REALLY really GOOD!!! I mean REALLY GOOD! HEY! Did I mention this was GOOD!? 🙂
For me…this has the PERFECT amount of both the cinnamon and the apple and they are equally yummy. The semi-sweet and juicy green tea is the focus of this offering from Souvia and I just think it’s genius!
Tea-riffic! I Well done!
Souvia…I am a fan of your Harvest Moon. Plain and Simple! Thank you!

Brew Time: 7 minutes
Ingredients: Apple Bits, Raisins, Carrot Bits, Beetroot Bits, Candied Pineapple Bits (Pineapple, Sugar), Candied Papaya Bits (Papaya, Sugar), Flavoring, Bamboo Leaves, Lemon Fruit Granulate
April Showers from Element Tea smells like Raisins, Carrots, and candy…as I first move it from the envelop and put some in my cup. It’s a bright reddish purple in color. When I saw the color of the liquid I was so afraid – I was thinking there was Hibiscus in it BUT thankfully…there is NO Hibiscus! That’s Beet Root I must be seeing!!!!
My first impression and tasting notes I could taste Carrots and Pineapple, then I can taste sugar or a candied-fruit. Then Lemon…and even some raisin. The after taste is that of Lemon and Apple. Nothing is overpowering and everything is playing nice with each other!
As it cools the carrot, lemon, pineapple, papaya, and candied fruit pop thru a bit more.
Honestly…this is most unusual but I am enjoying this much more that I ever thought I would! If one ingredient is a bit more noticeable than the other ingredients it just might be the carrot but like I said before…nothing is too overpowering.
