I’m trying to use up my sample of this…it’s amazing how bottomless a sample can be when you don’t like the tea much!

All I can say is, the flavor improves a little, on the second steeping. The peach mellows out and becomes less fake candy-ness and more like peach pie filling. The toastiness of the oolong becomes more pronounced. But something is still “off” about this.

lowering the score by 10 points!

I think is one of those teas that tries to enhance a natural oolong characteristic (like peachiness) with an artificial flavoring. Kind of like milky oolongs with milk flavoring. While I don’t mind flavored teas at all (in fact I love them!), this one just isn’t done right. So sad.

I may have to toss you, poor tea sample! I just can’t endure another cup!

(Nor can I impose your inferiority on others!)

I hear you on the bottomless sample!

It is sad that this isn’t very good. Usually peach flavors are a perfect pairing for an Oolong, because the Oolong already has a natural peachy-ish flavor to it. Sorry it didn’t fair well for you. :(

Oh man, ditto on the samples here. There’s a couple of samples that I’ve just given up on. I’ll probably end up having to post them in the Take it away thread.

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. ;)
