The dry leaves smell almost too peachy—very acrid and chemical. Like a Jolly Ranchers Peach Candy on steroids!

Luckily, though, the taste is pretty mellow. Basically like a roasted oolong with a hint of peach. But it’s not a fresh peach, it’s peach jam.

I want more of a “juicy peach” taste. Maybe that’s hard to achieve with flavoring (or maybe I should just eat an actual peach while drinking tea, huh? :P ). So, although this is drinkable and I will finish my sample, I will not order more.

(and I won’t be compelled to throw away my sample like I did with the Madagascar Vanilla Sunday Blend shudder)

Have you tried any of Lupicia’s peach teas? They have a black and an oolong, both of which I thought had a more fresh peach taste than Jolly Rancher taste. (I think their oolong is better but both are tasty.)

I was eyeing that peach oolong from Lupicia—it’s the popular one, I think it’s called “Momo”? But when I ordered, I was in the mood for more “caramelly-sweet” teas so that’s all I picked. But I’ll keep it in mind for next time!

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
Quote of the Day: “There really isn’t anything; only the story appearing now—and not even that.”
