Good tasting ceylon tea. The earl grey flavor is nearly non existent in this one, but it still makes a very nice cup of tea :)

I cold brewed this tea and let it steep overnight, then reheated. The bitterness is reduced a great deal, but the peach is pleasantly strong. Much better.
Okay for a Ceylon black bag, much better than Lipton or Tetley (which doesn’t say much), but not nearly as flavorful as the Twinings Ceylon. It is also more astringent and drying (higher tannin content?). I steeped this for less time than I did the Adam peach tea, which had a bitter aftertaste because I steeped it too long. Even at 2 minutes, 45 seconds it still has a bitter aftertaste. I will probably only drink this if I am out of other Ceylon teas.
Nice peach flavor, which goes better with ceylon black tea than with Stash’s oolong tea. The natural fruitiness of the ceylon is a nice match with the peach flavoring, though the ceylon tea they used is more bitter and of lower quality than Twinings ceylon. The black tea also adds body and depth which the oolong that Stash uses lacks. The tea has a bitter astringent edge that does not disappear with the addition of sweetener. Adding cream and sugar made it taste like peaches and cream, but the lingering bitterness spoils it.
