Well, I wondered about this tea for long enough. thanks to Sil it’s in my cup and I can stop wondering. Turns out I wasn’t missing much.

Sometimes I feel like I’m deficient somehow and can’t get flavour out of these teas. But then some teas come along and give me confidence again that I can taste flavours and I can make a yummy cup. No, there’s no happy ending here. This tea makes me doubt my taste buds yet again. Who are these people raving about peach? (And why does my iPad want to correct “peach” to "preschool?)

I’ve made it hot and tried. I added sugar and tried. Poured it over ice and tried. Someone is trying to pull the wool over my eye with this one. I had fantasies about ripe, flavourful, juicy peaches. I’m getting instead that disappointment you get from eyeing a gorgeous piece of fruit only to bite in it and find it mealy and cardboard-y. Waaaah!

I really don’t mean to be harsh but I’m getting mostly black tea. I can’t even smell the peach. It’s not awful or anything, it’s just not peachy.

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
