This evening I went out to dinner for my sister-in-law’s birthday and chose this tea from the selection. I have yet to find a peach tea that I really like (I love peaches, but peach flavoring is usually too sweet for me). This was pretty good, but it didn’t taste like peach or orange to me. It tasted like grapefruit, and something almost minty, which I think may be eucalyptus. I would drink this again if it was offered to me, but probably wouldn’t buy it.
Grapefruit and green tea should not go together, or at least not in this tea. I’m not the biggest fan of green tea anyway so that might be a factor in how much I dislike this tea.
I couldn’t finish the tin, so I brought it in to work, where it sat for months because nobody else liked it either. Blech.
Needed a diversion yesterday. The little orange sticker diverted me at Big Lots … three bucks for 72 bags. (Cheapie! Steep me! Need me!)
Tetley thinks this can handle 3-5 minutes with water brought right off a rolling boil. I departed from that a little; did water in my Hot Shot, which just barely boils before snapping off. Results…a decent, though not stellar, bagged tea with a good showing of vegetal freshness. Not strong enough for weekday mornings, I don’t think; this one will be an afternooner.
The Big Lots run was for marshmallows. I’m teaching Samson to my kiddos today; we’re going to thumb wrestle with marshmallows stuck on ’em. Want to come play?

My father likes it bold. Given the choice, he’d prefer to go with these teabags than the regular ones.
I, on the other hand, find it a little too… I don’t know what exactly. The flavour, perhaps, is more musky than the original, a little darker along with stronger, and while I might sometimes like dark or strong in certain teas… it just doesn’t serve for this cuppa.
So, unfortunately, not my favourite. Still quite drinkable, but not one I’d go out of the way for.
This tea was on clearance at my local Target, so of course I had to pick it up and give it a try. I found the most prominent aromas of the tea to be orange zest, licorice and ginger. The tea itself brewed a very nice orange/amber color but lost most of its aroma after steeping. This was not lost on me as I did not find the aroma particularly pleasing. I have drank this both hot and cold, and it is delicious both ways. When cold, there is more of a tarty bite at the end of each sip which I greatly enjoy. The orange flavor does not come across as overwhelming or artificial, although it is very dominant. I think this tea would make a wonderful summer iced tea, or even work well frozen into ice cubes or popsicles.
Flavors: Orange, Peach, Tangy, Tart
