drank Peach Blossom by Rishi Tea
56 tasting notes

I love white tea and I love peaches. However, until I had this tea I had yet experienced a peach tea that I really loved. But I keep trying. I picked this up at the store tonight.
Finally, this one does it. The tea and the citrus fruit is very well balanced. It’s subtle but not too subtle. It’s mellow but not too mellow. Just wonderful.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 5 min, 15 sec

This has been in my cabinet for a long time. I never got around to trying it though. I had it today. The combination of ingredients sounds amazing, but the taste is nothing special.

I’ve noticed this is becoming my go-to black tea lately.

I liked this better than the other sample I received, but still don’t love it. I really like the idea of creating my own combinations, so even without success I think I’ll try a couple more.

drank Ma-Chai by ineeka

Just made the last cup of this. I am not a huge fan of chai, but of chais, this is my favorite. Also, this is the first cup of tea my husband and I ever had together, so I’ll never be able to judge it objectively.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Maple Chocolate by Design a Tea

A sample I received. This disaster was my fault. Maple, Chocolate and Green Tea flavors just don’t go together. Now I know. I’m amazed I was able to get to the bottom of the cup.

Picked this out of the cabinet at work. It smelled good, but the taste isn’t all that great. I read the package and it says the ingredients are all natural. Black tea, hibiscus, and raspberries. However, it tastes a bit strange. I get an aftertaste of raspberry, but that’s about it. I do kind of like the smell, but I would not have this again.

Profile

Bio

Health coach and lover of tea.

I prefer cold tea to hot tea. But living in New England I end up drinking more hot than cold.

I go through periods when I only want my tea neat. I never add sugar or milk to tea.

I love lemon in hot and cold teas. And I sometimes experiment with other fresh fruit additions.

I tend toward subtle fruity blends of black, green, oolong, and rooibos teas but I’m trying to expand my tea palate a bit. I hope being part of this website will help.

Other websites I love for my non-tea related hobbies: AllConsuming, Goodreads, and Gowalla.

I am interested in tea swapping. I have tea by Gypsy Tea (someone else might like more) and Yogi Tea (not for me but someone else might really like) that I feel a need to find a new home for. Also anything in my cupboard I’m willing to swap. I love trying new teas!

Gypsy: Peach Blossom, King Chai, Grand Green
Yogi: Green Tea Goji Berry, Mayan Cocoa Spice, Mexican Sweet Chili, Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut

My ratings (because I need some way to conceptualize this vast system) are:

01-39 Unfollow.
40-49 Will never speak to again.
50-59 Would consider calling again.
60-69 Can hangout in my cupboard until they find a place to stay.
70-89 We can be roommates.
90-94 Here’s the key to my cupboard.
95-100 How can a tea be this perfect and special? We must be soulmates.
