Yes! I’m denting that “haven’t tried” pile! Plus, I thought this tea would be a treat to try after me crocheting for hours today trying to fix some stupid colour work gone bad on one of my patterns. I do love peaches.. homemade canned! Ahh memories of my teenager years in the summer spending all day peeling and slices peaches and canning them!

DRY: Tarty peach! Very tight balls of oolong.

STEEPED: Light gold, smells like oolong tea with a hint of peach.

TASTE: A nice smooth oolong (almost floral) upfront buzzing with white fuzzy peach flavor. I say fuzzy as I could sense that fuzzy peach skin, mmm fuzzy peach skin! I’d say this is totally a white peach as it is more mellow of a taste compared to yellow peaches. I would say this tea is light, but it is also full of flavor.

Sweetened, I might of over sweetened as I was distracted while adding the rock sugar, but I find the peach too sweet here and not as natural tasting. With that said, unsweetened for me!

Second infusion is still peachy, but astringency is starting. I think I might of overcooked the tea a bit as I was distracted again (roommate chatting with me about our new vacuum)

COMMENTS: This is really tasty! I’m glad I bought a bag instead of requesting it as a sample! I do like the strawberry oolong more, but this is still very good!

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
