Another old school one for me. (and yes it was the box art that conned me into this one).
But it is a good tea, and as I recall quite lemoney to me.
And despite this being something that tastes of highschool nostalgia to me, I am
actually pining for a cup at the moment….b/c if I thought that time frame of my life
was tension-filled. Well, lets just say it needs mega taming now.
But I admit its not just straight peach. Its almost peach perfume with a sweet undercurrent that I couldn’t quite place (but the notes list chamomile and blackerry leaf). But this doesn’t take away from the sweet flavors. Only that perhaps this is slightly like an artistic representation of a peach, not one smooshed into a teabag.
Oh god what?
I won’t be buying this again. It reeks. The kitchen and living room now smell like cheap and nasty pot-pourri, and the taste doesn’t much make up for it. Too much cinnamon, too little apple; it tastes strangely flat and then I just get a burn from the spice.
Maybe if I dump some chamomile in there I can make it drinkable? ::vanishes off to put the mental in experimental::
Brewed for 2 min, then stirred in about 2/3 tsp matcha powder (from teavana) to make my own “Genmaimatcha” since I’ve been coveting the American Tea Room blend after reading everyone rave notes/ratings.
I like that the nutty/cereal flavor of the toasted rice tempers that sweet tone in the matcha, while also tempering the grassiness by supplying a complementary depth. (Does that make any sense? It’s Friday and my brain is fried…)
Just bought I box of this. I tastes pretty much like the Bigelow Orange and Spice, at least I couldn’t notice much based on my memory. If anything, I think there’s something a little stronger here, either more orange oil or one of the spices is stronger. Anyway, I like both of the teas, but not orange black teas. Iono why, but I’m glad I bought this! (and at $2, why not?)
For a cheap, bag tea this is some pretty decent stuff. The only issue I have with it is that… well, it isn’t really tea! There is a nice honey taste. A nice vanilla taste. But where or where is the tea taste? I can make hot honey and vanilla on my own. The Camomile is in there, but still… no tea!
I would love to see this, exactly as it is, but with an Irish Breakfast Tea hiding underneath. Blending it myself was tasty.
It is an ok herb drink, and a tasty snack drink. I would buy it again.
My encounter with almond sunset was a fluke. After raspberry chocolate bliss left me in highschool (taking english toffee and vanilla hazelnut, its sisters in afterdinner tea happiness, with it), I would from time to time try another. I admit selection was made mostly on CS artwork (there I’ve said it).
Almond sunset didn’t win me over that way. Its art was kinda boring. But I gave it a go, and OMGosh it rocked. With milk (like most teas I fancy these days), it was sweet almond amazingness. Even if that equates it with cyanide,….well, I was prepared to go. :)
