Apparently I cannot see tea without doing my best to buy some of it. Tonight, I picked this one up. Honestly, I got it because the dry leaves smelled like Samovar’s Jasmine Peach Bai Mudan – and thus also like Kasugi Peach gummy. But brewed up, it’s not as similar. Sure, there’s peach. A lot of peach. But the smell has a little sharp, almost alcoholic edge to it. Perhaps the tangerine?

Where Samovar’s version of a peach-flavored white was Kasugi Peach gummy all grown up, this is more straight gummy. I don’t really get the tangerine except maybe as an added edge to the taste. The peach taste is pretty much the same in the two teas but this one doesn’t have the smooth, soft edges or the subtly fuller taste. Which, while disappointing, is pretty much what I was expecting. It’s not a bad tea and I’m pretty sure I’d like it more if I hadn’t had Samovar’s first.

I so know what you mean about having to buy. I totally broke my lockdown today. Sigh. But tomorrow I start a mini vacation and I am soooo looking forward to doing some serious tea-tasting while I am off from work!

Yay for vacations – mini or otherwise! And I think tea purchasing is a little bit of an addiction for me. At least I only got 2 teas yesterday though!

Maybe we should start a TA group… Teas Anonymous! I have a thing for cute tins, even if the tea isn’t the greatest I am still drawn to it as if it is saying “pick me! Pick me, I’m cute”! LOL

I wonder how it compares to Adagio’s White Peach… Have you tried it, Auggy?

Auggy

Sadly no, I haven’t. Though now I’m a bit intrigued to try it for comparison purposes.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
