I got my order from Kally Teas in the mail yesterday! The post office workers here probably hate me. I stalk my packages on the internet until they arrive at my local post office, then I run up to to get them so I don’t have to wait for them to be delivered to my door, because I’m notoriously impatient and that crap takes too long.
Dry, this tea smells cloyingly sweet and perfumey, But when steeped it tastes amazing. You can definitely taste the black tea and the peach, with a pleasant spicy background. The peach only comes out more when lightly sweetened.
The first steep was really good. I followed the directions on the package completely. I have an infuser at my house but I forgot to bring it to work with me. I wound up dumping the tea straight into my mug of water and fishing them back out when time was up, because again, I was really excited and I’m impatient.
The second steep was not as good, I shoved the wet leaves into my infuser when I got home so I didn’t have to go chase them again. The cloves in it made my tongue go a numb and tingly. I have to watch out for things like that, I have a geographic tongue,(My dentist said it was “really cool” because he hadn’t seen one before. He scares me but my teeth are healthy so win some lose some, I guess.), it can be wikipediaed if anyone cares to know what that is. I’m probably more susceptible things bothering my tongue than the rest of the population, so I’m not going to knock points off for that.
Overall though, I love this tea, and I will most likely buy more when I run out.
