drank Peach Iced Tea by Harney & Sons
754 tasting notes

I had to make an order from Harney and Sons because this tea was on sale. I had wanted to try it for a while. I like to make iced tea and cold brewed teas but I have never actually bought tea specifically designed to make iced tea before.

The tea comes in huge tea bags. There is a gentle smell of sweet fuzzy peach over the black tea.

I brewed this as recommended on the Harney website, 1 pouch of tea in 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes, remove tea bag and squeeze out liquid, add 6 cups of cold water. I also added a few tablespoons of sugar to sweeten it. I made it last night and then put it in the fridge for today.

It tasted like a medium black tea base with gentle notes of peach. It feels like a thick liquid, with a vegetal aftertaste. It is refreshing and cooling. This makes a delicious iced tea. Right now the weather where I am can be described as winter storm, despite being the middle of April. I had planned to keep this tea and use it through the summer. But I might have to make a few pitchers of tea just to dream of the summer that will hopefully come.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
