drank Peach Fuzz Chai by 52teas
470 tasting notes

Another from my box from LiberTEAS! I tend to be wary of peach teas since the flavor can come out very artificial, but I trust 52teas to blend up a juicy chai so I decided to make this today. I iced it the lazy way, aka let the cup sit out until it was cold enough to put ice in. I usually take chai hot but it felt like a peach version would be better cold. I tried a sip when it was still warm and I definitely prefer the iced version!

This is not overly peachy, but has a nice juice-like quality. It doesn’t really feel like a chai to me though, more like a spiced peach drink. There are certain flavors that I associate with chai—particularly clove and ginger—that I am not picking up. They are listed in the ingredients, but I am really only getting up the cardamom. The white base isn’t that strong either, so there’s not really a stand-out flavor. It’s good but too mild all-around for my taste: a pleasant enough cup, but perhaps too soft.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
