Odd! I know this is supposed to be peach but it tastes kinda almondy to me. Like in an almond flavor kind of way. I get the texture and mouthfeel of matcha here from the added matcha powder. I can taste the flowers and the smoothness of the vanilla. Yes, there is peach here, but an odd almond like peach. Of course, peaches and almonds are in the same family so I can see why they might taste similar. Actually, the peach maybe tastes more like apricot? Hmmm… I need another cup to make sure. Yeah, the peach is not as strong as I would have liked. Still pretty tasty though. I think the Super Grade Momo Oolong is infinitely better, but this is a nice affordable green tea version. :) I also like that this green tea doesn’t taste like the typical Chinese sencha so many green blends are made of.

Also, I stayed later at the office than was wise today and left in a rush. As a result, I left behind one critical piece of equipment that would allow me to work at home should that be necessary tomorrow. I suck. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to work. And hopefully the heat and electricity will still be on.

Aaaand I just notice that I had actually had this tea before. Apparently it tasted better last time if my previous note is any indication. I’m doing a second steep with the leaves in the fridge so hopefully that one will be tasty.

Hopefully the snowstorm will be flurries and we can all go to work tomorrow. :) Sorry this tea wasn’t as good this time around. Maybe it’s just too old? It is amazing when it’s fresh!

I must have brewed it differently. I think last time I brewed it as a green tea with lower temp because… well, it’s a green! But this time, I followed the directions on the bag and used boiling. WIll stick my with intuition in the future. And this tea is definitely fresh as it only arrived from Lupicia last week. Or at least I hope they are not sending me old tea. :p As for the snow, there’s definitely a few inches on the ground but it’s not worse than any other winter snow storm. I’ll be back in my cube and working like usual by morning. :)

Oh, I didn’t realize you had just bought it. I thought it was only available in the springtime. Sticking with a lower temp will probably be better. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
