Bleh. The dry leaves smelled fairly peachy and just a little weird, but the tea smells totally plasticky and off to me. Maybe it’s the yogurt bits? I’ve heard this is better if you take them out. So I’ll try that next time. But yeah, the taste is plastic and weird too. I’m not even really getting any peach at all. :/
After it cooled a little I started eating some mint chocolate with it and it actually tasted better. Huh. Still hopeful about this one, gonna try it iced too.
EDIT: The second steep was much nicer and lighter on the weird stuff, but still not all that great :\

And bleh, my house is full of smoke fumes! The stupid High Park Fire has shifted wind direction again and the smoke hit the ground like fog, I have a headache and can’t sleep…HELP!

I hadn’t of this till your review, and sounded really weird! Just read the tea description. An odd tea indeed. Yogurt pieces just seems like a huge no.

Bonnie – I hope you got to sleep! Stay safe :(

noordelijk – Yeah, the yogurt pieces seemed weird to me too, and it left some weird scum on the tea. But the pieces are pretty big so it should be pretty easy to pick them out next time.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
