drank Peach Fruit Tea by Harney & Sons
20 tasting notes

Disclaimer – this review is only reviewing the tisane iced as I doubt I’d enjoy it hot.

The aroma of this tisane was amazing as soon as I opened the tin – I’m a huge fan of peach and the aroma made my mouth water.

I followed the brewing instructions on the tin (boiling, 8 minutes), but used double the amount of tisane, waited a bit, then poured over ice.

While I definitely tasted the peach, I would have liked it a bit more peachy (but then again, I’d probably just be drinking juice). There’s definitely a touch of hibiscus flavour (and tartness from the hibiscus/rosehips), but I really like hibiscus tisanes, so it didn’t bother me. It’s a juicy tisane and on a whim I decided to sweeten it a touch (I usually don’t sweeten my iced tea) – that really brought out the peach flavour and juiciness. I think that because of the fruitiness, I expected it to be sweet (like juice), but since it’s a tisane, it’s obviously not. I have to keep reminding myself to have different expectations!

Would I buy it again? I’m on the fence about this one – while it was delicious and I’ll definitely finish the tin, we’ll see if it grows on me even more – enough to purchase again.

Bio

I’m Meg, I’ve been a tea drinker most of my life, but for the last 5 years it’s become a hobby and bit of an obsession. I’m a stay-at-home mom with a degree in Anthropological Archaeology and love to cook, bake, read and watch classic movies. I have converted my husband from coffee to tea, though we do have very different tastes.

My tastes in tea tend to be similar to my tastes in books and music – all over the place. I love the classics, like a beautiful darjeeling, but I also love playful, more flavourful teas as well. I drink pretty much anything black, green, rooibos, herbal, plain, flavoured, loose leaf, bagged tea, iced or hot. I’m a new mom, so my ratings tend to be whenever I can get the time to post.

Favourite tea of the moment: Peche Mignon, THE O DOR (beautiful iced or hot)

My rating system (first attempt, so there may be later revisions):


0-25:
 Horrible. Won’t be drinking this again – ever. Dumped out the rest of the cup/pot.

26-50: Definitely not something I’d buy again, but I might finish the stash (unless it’s a large amount or particularly bad). A one or couple of redeeming factors, but overall not a great tea.

51-75:
 A drinkable tea, but unfortunately has one (or more) large flaws that will keep it from being a tea that stays in my cupboard. May need doctoring with (gasp) sugar, lemon or cream. I will finish the amount I have, but not purchase again.

76-85:
 A great everyday tea and will probably stock it in my cupboard for daily drinking if it’s not too expensive.

86-90: Teas that I really enjoy, stock in my cupboard and drink often.

91-100: These are the ones that remind me why I love tea and am proud to be a tea drinker. Reserved for my favourite teas that I always keep stocked and/or teas that I save for special occasions.
