I had this tea in San Luis Obispo today, on my little Avila Beach trip. I used my “Free Cup of Tea” card to purchase this, even though I still had to pay a small amount.

Leaf Quality
They brewed the tea for me in a mug, without me being able to see the dry leaves, as they usually do. Luckily, I got to see the dry leaves in a sample jar. They were a light green, with fur on them. Many of these leaves were definitely buds. I did not get to smell them dry. The wet leaves smelled sweet and grassy, but very faint.

Brewed Tea
The tea yielded a very light, yellow-green liquor. It was very difficult to pick up a discernible scent from the tea, however, I am sure I picked up some floral notes. The taste was also light, but pleasant.

*Note: I am quite sure Peet’s used boiling water for the brewing of this tea. This could have messed with the flavor slightly, so I would like to try this at home in the future.

I like San Luis Obispo and going from Paso Robles high heat over the pass and feeling the cool Ocean Breeze!!! Then on to Pismo and Moon Rock collecting on the beach…ah…lucky you

Pismo will definitely give you a cool Ocean Breeze. And it’s great that all the beaches are located right next to each other.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
