drank Giant Peach Iced Tea by Tazo
765 tasting notes

Picked this one up at the Starbucks where I stopped to pick up some lunch. I was already in the area and I didn’t want to have to drive somewhere else so I thought I might as well grab a panini at Starbucks. I couldn’t decide on a drink and I felt like the barista was waiting for my reply so I impulsively grabbed this from the cooler.

This was pretty good. At first I had assumed I was drinking a very sweet black tea until I read the label. Its green tea with apple and peach juice. I could definitely taste the apples and peaches. I could taste the green tea underneath the apple and peach flavour, but only after I read the label. So it may have just been the power of suggestion! Overall it was good, but a little too sweet. I felt a bit cheated after I found out there was juice in it, but I guess that is better than a load of artificial flavour and sugar. Although, I am sure that is all the juice is made of anyway.

I wish I really would have asked them to make me a fresh iced tea instead. Not sure why I choked when she asked me what I wanted. There’s always next time.

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.
