In the dry mix you can definitely smell the peaches and yogurt, not sure how it will translate when steeped.

Hot: Not really what I was expecting… maybe I crave more peach and less yogurt? And the black tea base isn’t really strong enough, in my opinion. Maybe it will turn out better if I leave it in the fridge for a while…

Cold: Okay, I’m not sure what’s going on, but it appears the yogurt drops have reconstituted and there are now weird floaty bits all over. Not really putting me in the mood to drink it. Upon sipping (apprehensively, I might add) I do get a bit more peach, but still not enough black tea and the stevia is giving me a strange aftertaste. Gosh, why did I buy 50g of this??

I definitely don’t think the yogurt would hold up well to icing, as it would only be ‘liquid’ when hot. With my yogurt and chocolate teas I like to drink them as ot as I can for the full flavour. If you happen to have any unflavoured black tea lying around, you could try adding a bit (maybe 1/2 tsp per cup) to “tea” it up some. Of course, you can always pick out the yogurt drops too. : ) Hope you can find some way to enjoy it!

Uniquity: I will have to try both your suggestions, picking out the yogurt & mixing in a plain black. Plus, I suppose I could always serve this tea when guests come over…

I find if I use a paper tea sac then there is no yogurt bit problem, that’s what I do when I’m icing it for sure, as I think this tea is best iced :)

Faith

Daisy: Maybe that’s what I’ll do… I normally use a mesh strainer.

I do this for my read my lips as well, more because I can’t get the red candy out of my trainer very easily haha n_n;

Bio

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
