I first received this from Quiltguppy. Isn’t that the way so many of us have been introduced to new favorite teas? I had to place my own order!

I served this at tea party today, and this was the winner for me, though my guest liked the Lychee tea best. I took this with no sugar or milk, and hot this time instead of iced. Comparing the two teas, lychee was lightly citrusy, floral, and bright – overall very mild.
The peach flavor is a slightly darker, heavier flavor and I found that I preferred it today, though a different tea mood could easily have me preferring the lychee. Since we were serving home made brownies made with freshly ground wheat and topped with a small amount of whipped cream, I think the peach flavor was just coming through better. Having a cuppa with something lighter or just having a cup of tea by itself, I can see myself preferring the lychee at times.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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