I really want to find some white teas that I like and I found this lurking in the back of my cupboard. I can’t remember when I bought this. These are teabags, and when I opened up the can to take a whiff it is an overwhelming artifical peach smell. Really it reminds me of paint drying.

I followed the instructions on the tin and steeped it for around 45 seconds with nearly boiling water. I am sorry to report that this is just really awful and it isn’t cheap either… I can’t make myself finish it off. No doubt it is going into the compost. I really like ginger but I think there is something about this peach flavoring that is really not for me. I do like the white peach tea from Rishi so it isn’t like I’m totally biased against fruit or anything. blecch.

I would rather watch paint dry….

Sorry about the bad experience. That’s one reason I am not a fan of RoT, their teas are overpriced for what you get, IMHO.

That’s ok… they can’t all be winners, now can they? ;-)

RoT is seriously hit and miss. I’ve been burned by them too – the overprice doesn’t necessarily mean a higher quality tea. Sorry this happened to you! :(

I guess you could say this tea is ROTten! {Ba Dum Bum} Hey, it’s the best I can do at 6:48 am! :))

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
