drank Precious White Peach by Teavana
442 tasting notes

Did a full pot of this one tonight since I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to have to do multiple trips to the kettle. This tea is delicate, almost extremely so. I suspect that that’s why the use the word precious in the name.

Dry the leaves look pretty average, with chunks of various things added, although none looked extremely peach-y. Once brewed the leaves were still not completely unfurled, which surprised me. I’m not one to do a multiple steep on non-oolong teas, but I may try with this one just to see.

The smell of the tea is definitely peach, and a lovely version of the fruit. I drank this one unsweetened, and didn’t once feel that sweetener was needed. First cup was definitely a lovely light peach flavour in a light yellow tea. The peach was more prominent as the cup cooled.

Second cup (from the same pot) was less peachy, I’m not sure if it was because I’d become accustomed to the flavour or something else, but it was definitely less.

Third cup I let cool, and there was the peach again. I think I’ll do an iced tea next time with what I have left of this one. The peach I hoped for when I got this one is definitely more prominent in cooler temperatures.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
