I got a nice package from AmazonV in the mail today. In it came this along with many others and this one I picked based on smell. The dry leaf is lovely and smells like it would be a wonderful potpourri. Steeped up following directions and this is a little tart. I don’t mind it too much but it’s not something I could see myself ordering or drinking daily. It’s just sorta Meh.

but yes it is kinda take it or leave it, but fun smelling (why are smells != taste)

Okay I will try it iced next. Glad you sent me such a generous sample so that it has a second, third, and fourth chance. :)

My husband loves this iced…I find it kinda meh either way. But iced is more calm on the tartness. Great sangriatea made from this with peaches, oranges and pineapple last week. Too bad he drank it all before I got to try it!

Meghann, That was rude of him! I know what you mean I keep making pitchers of the H&S peach tea and by time I get around to having a glass it’s too late to drink it (caffeine wise) and so it’s sits and my hubby and son drink it! It’s like a vicious cycle. :)
I think I’ve had this iced as a sample at Teavana and I wasn’t real crazy about it but I think it was blended with something else too.

If it was within the last month or two I bet it was blended with the Strawberry Lemonade tisane. I tried that blend but thought it was too citrusy so they recommended the Strawberry Paraiso, and that makes a good blend with it, but that also means I fell for the Teavana Trap-buy an expensive white tea to mix with tea X so they can get more money out of you. I now know better!

I think Teavana’s sample teas are a bit too sweetened for me most times, and I usually don’t use as many leaves as they do, so the taste changed a bit at home.

Speaking of H&S I bet those white peach you sent me would taste great for my iced tea for tomorrow!

New to the world of hot tea, being born and raised in Texas we typically only drink lipton black tea, sweetened and iced of course! I recently discovered the world of hot tea / flavored teas and am thoroughly enjoying my new little world of tea!
