1965 tasting notes

I am really bummed because my first package from the Verdant reserve tea of the month club accidentally shipped to my old address that I just moved from, and is now very far away. I realized it when I saw on the tracking info that there was a notice left for delivery, but I hadn’t received a notice. Then I noticed that the current location was my old town. :(

In an effort to improve my mood, I am having a cup of this, which I got in my happy bag this year. I’m interested to try more of lupicia’s black teas because I have only ever had their black base of their Earl Grey, which I rather like a lot. This one smells very very peachy. I also smell a nice malty, almost bready black tea in it, which really smells good. The result is almost something like peach cobbler. Or maybe toast with peach butter. We got some peach butter in South Carolina the last time we were there and it was fantastic. This tea is reminding me of having that on some toast. The flavor is pretty great too… Ripe, juicy peach, but not too overly sweet so as to be candyish. The black tea base supports it very well and it quite delicious in its own right. The peach flavor is definitely not overwhelming and plays pretty equally with the black tea, not steamrolling over the top of it. I am definitely pleased with this offering and am even more interested to try more of Lupicia’s black teas.

Sounds tasty! hope your tea gets to you soon :)

Thanks… It’s more complicated though because I couldn’t set up a forwarding address for my mail due to some weird beaurocracy, so the package will just be returned to Verdant in 15 days.

bummer about the package! Hopefully you’ll get it eventually.
This Peach tea sounds awesome, I love peaches! I finally have an excuse to place an order from Lupicia.

Terri – I bet you could arrange a swap with someone to try this tea, since a billion of us just picked it up in our Happy Bags. (I won’t have enough to do so, but others easily may!)

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
