I was ensnared by the beautiful description of this peach-flavoured black tea, but sadly I was disappointed.

After steeping for the recommended 4 minutes, the tea brewed up a murky.  medium rusty orange. The murkiness is due to the dissolved yogurt drops, and leaves a soap-scum type film at the top of the cup (and I use filtered water).

The taste is extremely mild, with only the slightest hint of peach, not nearly as lush as the description would suggest. I’m not a fan of the aftertaste the stevia imparts.

Also because of the yogurt “scum” I have to give my metal strainer & my pot a very thorough wash afterwards.
