drank Peach Tranquility by Teavana
18 tasting notes

Right now this is just about the perfect tea for me, because I am stressed out, reacting badly to caffeine and in need of a gentle pick-me-up. I find Peach Tranquility to be a soothing, luxurious treat on its own and it blends really well with other teas (especially Teavana’s Shanghai Orchid or Wild Orange Blossom teas, the first accentuates Peach Tranquility’s mellow notes and adds floral overtones while the second adds contrasting peppy citrus notes). It is sweet and fruity and mellow, with a strong taste of peach, but lots of other notes to give it complexity. And when I say sweet I mean it has quite a bit of sugar in it from all the candied fruit in the blend! The way I prepare it is to add 4 tablespoons of tea to my pot and steep it for about 10 minutes in four cups of boiling water – if it is a little chilly after that I just heat it up in the microwave. Not the way I would treat a fine tea, sure, but this is a fruit infusion and it can stand up to that sort of treatment, it is pretty robust. The resteep is often a little weak for my taste so I add one more tablespoon of tea to the mix and then it is just fine.

Bio

I’m an expat Brit in America, a lifelong tea lover in that British “milk and two sugars” way, who 6 years ago learned to love her tea without sugar, and now is learning to love it without milk. Two summers ago I learned how to make a proper glass of American iced tea. I’m new to indie tea and having an alarming amount of fun trying out all the amazing blends I keep finding! I used to just drink the black tea I brought home from my visits to the UK plus things like Yogi ginger, and now I am finding a whole new world of tea out there to explore.

Right now I’m mostly interested in flavoured teas as I find those the easiest to enjoy without milk and especially in teas with little to no caffeine as too much caffeine can really send my body chemistry into a tailspin. In the early morning I indulge myself with a couple of cups of something caffeinated but after that it’s noncaf all the way. My teacups are pint sized and I usually have one near me.
