So while I was drinking this tea, I was dreaming up my tasting note and what I was going to write because it is so awesome. But first I needed to take the laundry out of the washer. And guess what, the entire basement is backed up with laundry water. Thankfully not a sewer back up but nothing is draining down the sewer. Yuck. Now waiting for roto-rooter so I can pay them double time becuase it is the weekend. And I have never had sewer problems. Hrmph!

So lets see if this tea can make it better. First of all, the whole presentation of the tea is awesome. Awesome packaging, awesome tin, awesome smell, awesome looking dry tea, awesome that it is a Canadian company (Ontario), the price not so awesome – but I am sure I will get over that.

The smell of the dry tea is like candied peaches and cream. The brewed tea smells the same. The tea tastes like delicious peaches and cream. Fresh, fruity and delightful. It is a white tea base, so it is very light.

I bought this and there were 4 teas in a sample pack. Can’t wait to try the others!

this has made me want to go get the other mother’s day blends. Annoys me i can’t purchase them through sloane though…has to be at chapters and the 4 pack only has 2 of the new teas! bah! but i’m thinking maybe i’ll get this one and the caramel black…as a treat. lol

I am definitely impressed, great quality of tea. If you go on the Sloane website, you can look up places close to you that sell it, lots in Ontario. But I know some of their blends are exclusive to Indigo/Chapters.

Sil

Yeah the Mother’s Day ones are chapters exclusives. So I know where I’m going tomorrow lol

Ugh, flooding is so horrible! I hope things are fixed and drying out by now? Tea wise, this sounds absolutely delicious. Did you buy the sample pack from Chapters or Sloane?

Sil

you can’t get them except at chapters for this particular sampler. lesigh at least that’s my understanding

Lala

Basement is all good now. Unread out to be a tree root in the city party of the sewer line. I didn’t have any back up, just nothing going down. Now the fight with the city begins for who gets to pay the bill.
Yes bought the sample pack at chapters. Sloane made some specific blends that are only exclusives to indigo and chapters. The peaches and cream was one of them, so if the Mother’s Day tea I guess.

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.
