drank Midsummer Peach (Decaf) by Tsaa
1342 tasting notes

Oh myyyyy!! Peaches for me! oh yes!!
I’ve been hunting for a great peach tea, heck a great fruit tea for ages now, and I finally found one! Wow. Too bad it was only a to go cup. This place has me coming back for more and more… I am officially in lust with this place!
I love that it’s a family run business, and that they are SO committed to great customer service. Seriously, I cannot sing higher praises.
Now the tea… well it might be a bit too much for some. It reminds me of that peach drink you get at Tim Hortons. Do they still have that? I haven’t looked in years.
Anyhow, it’s a black tea/peach juice hybrid, and the notes are balanced perfectly (for me). With just a few drops of agave, I was in absolute heaven. Heaven I tell ya!
The shop girl tells me that it’s amaaaazing iced, so first chance I get you can bet I’m hitting this place up again sighs
Oh and did I mention it’s decaf? I don’t mind either way, it’s THAT good… but I like that I can drink as much as I want and not get jitters.

Is this the same thing as Harney and Sons Midsummer Peach?

Indigobloom

I’m not sure! I’ll ask next time I’m in.

Yippee Skippee…finally you found a happy tea that half way throught the review you didn’t change your mind and choke on and spit out saying blech!

ScottTeaMan

It is ssooo hard to find a good peach tea. ://

Kittenna

Did you get any of the mango tea that I had to try?

Indigobloom

Bonnie, have I been doing that?? eeek I didn’t realize!
ScottTeaMan: I know right? atleast I know it exists now, it IS possible :)
Kristaleyn: Unfortunately it was too late at night for caffeine, and I was off to my hockey game (can’t have jitters on the court haha)

Scott: Madame Butterfly is a pretty decent peach green, and I was surprised at how good Plantation Peach from the Charleston Tea Plantation tasted. It smells even better than Harney and Sons Midsummer Peach to me, though I think both probably taste equally good.

Indigobloom

Mmmm I so wanna order some of the Harney version just to compare. or maybe the Charleston :P

ashmanra

Indigo: I have both, send me an addy!

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
