First, thank you Courtney for this sample!

It took me a long time to try this one. I’m usually not into flavored teas, and also green tea isn’t my favorite. But I’m in a strange mood. I’ve just finished drinking a cup of tea made from California’s favorite medicinal herb. Consumed this way, it has a mild relaxing effect. It’s so mild, really, that it could really just be the placebo effect.

Anyhow, the dry leaf smells just like those gummy peach Os to me. The brewed tea has that same aroma, but there is also the green tea coming through, and rose. Sadly, the first sip is extremely off-putting. It has a very artificial fruity peach/candied orange peel taste. As it cools, it becomes a little bit better, and I can taste the green and black tea more. The finish is like artificially flavored candy. I wouldn’t want to drink this again, but I’m glad to have tried it!

Bio

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
