2510 Tasting Notes
I threw this in my purse sometimes yesterday afternoon to bring to Tony’s, & a little while ago I remembered it was there. I tend to love anything that tastes like Peaches, & most of the people I’ve traded with have read that in my bio & sent me every Peach tea under the Sun. I probably need to update my bio to take that Peach bit out, because I’ve learned that most Peach teas disappoint. Usually the flavor is fake tasting, or it’s more of an under-ripe peach flavor. I’m also not a huge fan of rooibos.
This Peach Melba, which is not a true melba, since there are no raspberries in it, is non-the-less probably my favorite rooibos blend to date :) In the bag, it smells wonderfully peachy & juicy, mouthwatering really. In the cup it’s not quite so, but it is still very tasty & comforting, with a mild peachy taste, a creamy feel, & I have to say, the flavors meld nicely. I think maybe Peach is a complimentary mix with Rooibos.
Thanks to Sil for sending me this sample (& many more). :D
The bills are paid!
I fixed myself some lunch & a cup of this tea, which is bold & manly, & then I checked my mail & I have a package from Canada! YAY!!!
I didn’t expect it to come so soon. While I’ve been enjoying this cup of damn fine tea, I’ve been playing with all the samples Sil sent to me. I’m SO excited! Thanks for trading with me, Sil!
Now I’m keeping my fingers crossed & holding my breath until the box I sent arrives…
I’m paying bills. It’s a job that I hate, but I am grateful to be a self-employed musician, & to actually make enough money to pay my bills.
I found this in the cookie jar where I keep the white & green samples. It’s been there for awhile, & although it’s probably not a tea I would purchase, it is a pleasant & soothing cup of paleness that is like a mild, vaguely sweet, & nourishing ‘pea broth’.
I’m thinking I need to take a break & eat some lunch soon.
Good morning Steepster, this is Ms Theresa. Terri the Harp Player (juvenile rebel) & her sidekick little terri (4 year old with a penchant for ordering expensive teas with our credit card) are both grounded for the day, pending the completion of ALOT of office work!!
I am in charge & we’ll be drinking grown up teas all day, while I get things under control. Sometimes that’s just the way it has to be!
I’m sorry to say that this is a sipdown! I have thoroughly enjoyed this blend, which is such a wonderful combination of Laoshan Black, Wild Picked Yunnan Jin Jun Mei, Big Red Robe, Willow Grove Shu, & Aged Silver Needle White. It nicely pulls together the best qualities of each of the aforementioned teas, resulting in a cup that is bold enough to start my morning, and laced with all the flavors that I love: chocolate, malt, caramel, cinnamon…ahhh, I only regret that it is gone. Hopefully David will create a similar blend soon.
