I think I’ve tried this one before, but I hadn’t logged it. Having some more this morning (yes, I know it’s not morning, but it is for me).
I am a little surprised by the other tasting notes for this tea, because I can taste the peaches and cream. They meld together quite nicely. I don’t taste the black tea quite as much as I do the peaches and cream… it’s a very nice tea though… perhaps one of my favorites from the mystery boxes I purchased.
I thought I already logged this but apparently I didn’t and I am backlogging it but…I did enjoy it last week…I remember it being Apricoty but a little toned down. I’m thinking because of the brandied aspect. Whereas I don’t think it really tasted like brandy, persay, it did taste like a mixed drink of sorts…not bad at all!
I just tried the Ultimate Citrus Spice tea from 52Teas the other day, and I have to say that I actually like this one better!
The flavor is sweeter and smoother. Nice with a dollop of honey… It would be very good without the sweetener too, but, I like the way orange and honey taste together. Maybe I’ll have to locate the honey flavored black and combine it with this!
LiberTEAS sent me a sample of this, thanks to her I get to try a whole smorgasbord of teas! I’m not too crazy about this one. It’s ok, but I think that something should be stronger, either the lemon or the ginger, wouldn’t matter to me which one. I would drink this again if offered (and I will finish the sample) but I wouldn’t purchase.
Finishing off the last that I have of this – because it was a Russian Caravan, I sent most of this one to TeaEqualsBliss.
Although I must say that this is one of the better Russian Caravan teas that I’ve tried… the smokiness is mild. I don’t know if it’s because of the fruity flavors or what… but, other Russian Caravan teas that I’ve encountered (and I’ve only encountered a few) have been entirely too smoky for my liking. But this one is alright.
This is a very good Keemun. Very bold. Malty! Undertones of spice and fruit. And a distant smoky note that adds a sort of caramel sweet note to cut through a little bit of the edge of it.
Since I’m up rather early this morning and not going to go back to bed… I need THIS!
I’ve eager to try this iced but my first encounter was a hot cup tonight. It’s was alright! It was more cran than cherry but the cran wasn’t bitter and the cherry wasn’t really that of a BING Cherry but you could still tell it was some sort of cherry. Neither flavor over powered the black tea taste – which is good. HOT I think this is ‘ok’ but I have higher hopes for the ICED version.
This is a surprisingly tasty blend. I was hesitant to try it (alright, I was downright apprehensive) because, well, when I think “Russian Caravan” I think Lapsang Souchong, and when I think Lapsang Souchong, I think TOO SMOKY for me.
But this isn’t. Yes, there is a smoky taste to this tea, but it does not overpower the cup. It is not too much. The fruit flavor with the smoky qualities of the Russian Caravan create a very unusual yet delicious tea.
The fruity taste offers a bit of sweetness (which I’ve enhanced with a drizzle of honey) and somehow, it offers a strange yet complementary taste to the smoky flavor. I like this very much.
Had 24oz. w/ my favorite home-made panini:
a slice of breaded eggplant
goat cheese w/ crushed red pepper
a slice of roasted red pepper
a slice of tomato
Miracle Whip on one side of the French bread, Fat Free Italian dressing on the other.
In spite of their being no “cream”… and virtually no peach… it’s a pretty good iced tea that pairs very well.
Made a gallon of this cold and drank 32oz of it… raw leaf is slightly peach scented, but also has floral/perfumey notes… tastes a bit like peaches… spicifically peach COBBLER. Way more bakey than I expected it to be (since I didn’t expect it to be bakey at all). Still floral and perfumey… not creamy… hmmm… not gonna rate it til I can figure it out.
