Thanks to Lala for the huge amount of samples from our swap back in March. I have enough of this tea alone for at least 5 cups, and that’s not counting resteeps! Thank you, Lala!!

The dry leaf aroma is all peachy goodness. The brewed tea aroma is peaches with something more. The flavor is a delicate balance of peaches, cream, and white tea. This is delicious! I’m so impressed with how delicately the flavors are balanced. They seem to romp back and forth, exchanging positions for prominence.

Gosh, I love tea. I hope my child likes tea too. It’d be fun to share that together. I love that my husband has become more interested in tea over the past year or so. It still amazes me that two people can drink the exact same cup of tea and, even preferences aside, taste different things in it.

Well for me, this is a great tea! It delivers on the cream element more than any other tea by that name that I’ve tried. It has no bitterness nor astringency. There’s a subtle sweetness apparent, the way fruit is naturally sweet. Total yum factor! I will enjoy every cup.

ETA: Hmm, I can’t find this on the Sloane website. Was it a limited edition tea or something?

This one was very good. I didn’t think it was limited edition, but I bought mine thru Indigo/Chapters.

I’m not real familiar with Sloane. They don’t seem to have very many teas available on their website. Are seasonal blends their thing? Or do they primarily use other retailers for distribution?

sloane = toronto company = what i’d call average teas for way expensive. i tend to only pick them u when they have their random sales around christmas when i can get them for 50% off. otherwise i find them generally overpriced for what you get

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
