90
drank Peach Tranquility by Teavana
2913 tasting notes

I don’t get insomnia often, but the last few nights I’ve been online late & by the time I laid down, my head was racing with thoughts, conversations, images, & ideas. Last night it took an hour of Cryptoquips (I must have been a Navaho code talker in a previous life, cuz I’m really good at breaking codes, & they help to empty my mind), yoga asanas, a warm heating pad, & a double dose of Valerian Tincture to finally go to sleep.

I thought I’d end the day with Republic of Tea’s Chamomile lemon. When I need a sleep aid, I put 2 teabags in my cup, with a little extra Valerian. So tonight I started the water, opened the canister, and what? Hmmmm…I think that’s some long forgotten black tea with Jasmine that a friend gave me back in the 90’s. Must have neglected to label it.

Luckily, I have a tin of Peach Tranquility. This is one of the first teas I bought from Teavana when they opened their doors. I was playing an Xmas gig at a local mall on Saturdays & Sundays during the month of December years ago. Teavana was new, & I fell in love. My 4 children (& a few students) gave me Teavana giftcards, & it was an awesome Holiday season!

Peach Tranquility is such a beautiful herbal tea, loaded with little chunks of dried peach, pineapple, apple, rosehips, chamomile flowers, & some other pretty things. I always want to nibble on the dried fruit, & usually after I’ve brewed the tea I like to pick out the pieces of pineapple with chopsticks & eat them. It’s fun!

The aroma is heady, with the sweetness of Peachy, bright, cheerful, juicy goodness, served on a bed of chamomile to lull me to sleep. There’s always this sensation that I don’t have words for, something I feel under my tongue. I think it’s from the pineapple, so I’ll call it tart & lively.(I actually tried googling a list of ‘oral sensations’, thinking I’d find a word to match what I felt. Sadly, there were only links to a porn site by that name. Call me naive. I didn’t go there).

This is a sweet & tasty tea that I’ve enjoyed for years, & (you’ll be glad to know) I refresh my supply fairly often!

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
