470 tasting notes

The last tea left to try from my Fire Sale box from iHeartTeas! I’ve actually never had a peanut tea before, mostly because the bf is allergic to them and I feel bad buying things he can’t try. However, it doesn’t count if it’s a surprise!

In the bag, this smells very smokey, almost like a full lapsang even though it says there’s only a bit blended in here. Smokey teas and I don’t always get along, so I wasn’t so sure, probably why it took so long to brew this even with my love of peanut butter. However, there are lots of whole peanut halves, so I had high hopes! Brewed, this loses a lot of that smokey edge and is almost fruity. In fact, it reminds me of a nice keemun! It’s smooth and sweet, nicely full-flavored with a touch of smoke and a hint of astringency. I think this would be a fantastic breakfast tea!

The peanut, though, isn’t that prominent. There are nutty tones but I don’t really get “peanut” except at the every end of the sip—the smokey notes linger along with the peanut, and that’s the only time I get the “peanut butter toast” aspect. I think the name is a bit misleading, since this is more of a nutty, brisk morning blend to me. Though it’s totally different from what I was expecting, it’s very tasty and I don’t think it’ll take long to finish this off!

This sounds really unique. I’ve never even heard of it before!

I got a lot of really unique/unavailable blends in the Fire Sale box: in fact, I think only one of them can actually be bought. It’s always fun to try out new and rare teas!

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!
