Meh. It’s alright. I had it as a latte last night and it was decent. They gave me a bag and I steeped today, just with milk and sugar. Last night I could taste the individual teas, and a peachy undertone, but today, it was more black than anything, which might have been my brewing temp and time of steeping. I might consider getting this in place of the Awake Tea latte that I occasionally get from Starbucks at work (but I tend to get coffee from Starbucks more and tea from Teavana or both from Timmie’s since it is cheaper).

I didn’t like this one much, either. I ended up trading it for something else.

I found this tea was best luke-warm. Sweet peach notes come out way easier when it’s colder sadly.

Yes, I think I noticed the peachy tones more as it cooled.

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.
