I received many samples of Twines from Leaves of Tea.
This is the first one I have had time to sit down and review.
Being completely new to Twines I wanted to take time to really give it my focus.
First of all I love peach and, well, I used to love chardonnay. Still do but no longer drink alcohol. So this is nice.
The peach is subtle but present. A juicy ripe peach absent of chemical artificial flavorings. This is a plus!
The base is a very basic black tea. I am not picking up any finer qualities however I am also not getting any astringency or bitterness. A very nice subdued black base.
The aroma is also quite lovely of ripe peach and the slight scent of a dry white wine.
On the sip – toward the back edges of the tongue you get a tingly sensation.
The more the tea cools the more sweetness and flavor tends to come out. For this reason I am going to chill the rest of this steep and report more later.
Thanks to Leaves of Tea I have a generous sample here and enough for one or two more cups!

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
