Backlogging from yesterday: I made a pitcher of this tea Saturday so it would have time to chill and the flavors meld before the Labor Day cook out. It was lightly sweetened. One young guest, who is accustomed to the syrupy sweet southern iced tea that is predominant here, said she loved the peach but it wasn’t sweet enough for her. I have grown accustomed to tea that is lightly sweetened or u sweetened, so the level of sugar was fine.

Surprisingly, I think I like this better than Midsummer’s Peach, probably because of the additional heft of the base. It is pretty close!

Charleston Tea Plantation has been consistently good. I think I have had about four of their teas now.

I love this one! I have a friend in North Carolina ship it up to me regularly. Hmmm, now I want some . . .

Red Rose: A friend of mine bought this at the actual plantation! I have never been, but hope to go next spring. When I go to Raleigh to see my kids I can buy it loose leaf. They don’t sell it in my town, even though I am closer to SC.

Since I live in South Carolina, we can get these teas locally. They are all very good. The company was sold to the Bigelow tea company but Bigelow said that they don’t plan to change how the tea is produced. If you get to South Carolina, make time to tour the tea plantation! http://www.charlestonteaplantation.com/

Stoo: I definitely want to go there! A friend moved to Charleston two years ago and has invited me to come stay with her anytime. We plan to go to the plantation when I make it down there.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
