Before I get to this tea – I went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. They used to serve Golden Peak iced tea. It wasn’t bad. Whatever they switched to was awesome for restaurant tea. Great depth. Great bite. Made my tongue tingle. The tamale was good too.

On to this one – still can’t figure out why the name on this one. I can lightly pick out the lavender today. I can also taste something sort of like pumpkin spice – is that what safflower tastes like? Can’t really pick out the black tea. It’s pleasant enough but is kind of one of those teas for people who don’t really like tea. The dry leaf looks like my cockatiel would love it.

ASK them! ;-) Seriously. I have no recollection of Golden Peak although I do remember seeing it in diners, cafeterias, etc. The new brew may only be sold to the restaurant trade but I’d still like to know.

I would probably try Yorkshire Gold with tamales, but so far haven’t had it iced.

Can’t help with the safflower, sorry.

I normally do ask. usually they look at me weird (dude, its just tea). The Red Lobster near by has excellent iced tea. Their website says they serve Tetley. This was similar but honestly even more depth. Could have been in large part the master with the scoop and the water. It can make a big difference.
