I really really really like this tea. I was looking for an herbal to have hot since it is a bit cool tonight and I opted to see how this would handle hot instead of iced. I have to say, I think it worked well. I think I do prefer iced, but only just slightly. It is juicy and refreshing iced. Hot, it it still juicy and somewhat cozy. It is definitely peachy. I do really love the look of this tea…it is very colourful. It smells sooo delicious too. It feels like a nice fall tea…a little summery, but hot it feels a little fall. It doesn’t quite say fall to me like Alpine Punch or Amaretto do, or Orange Blossom even. Banana Nut Bread is another that feels really warming and hearty for a fall to winter tea for me. Bamboozled hot seems like a summer to fall tea.

Overall, I still really like this and will try to save what I can for next summer, but I might dabble in it again for a hot one.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
