All of you people posting about peach teas reminded me that I haven’t had any of this since I got back from my trip. I’ve now fixed that state of affairs.

This is still really good, still one of my favourite flavoured teas. There’s something about the combination of peach and oolong that works really well together, more so than many other fruit flavoured teas I’ve tried, and something about this peach oolong in particular that especially works for me. This really does taste like peach rather than peach flavouring, and the balance of the flavour and the tea is just right.

I got a bit overenthusiastic and used a little too much leaf this time, and used boiling water instead of water at just slightly below boiling point, so I ended up with a slightly stronger flavour and just a little more astringency than I prefer. Will make sure to go back to my usual method with this tea next time.

LOL! So it’s a peach pandemic now? I’ve noticed that too actually. Peaches peaches peaches. Not too fond of peaches myself, so I’ll wait for the next trend. :)

LOL, well I think my Stash peach oolong is the only peach-flavoured thing I own so in my case you won’t have to wait too long for me to move to something else. XD

I already logged the peach sample I had…I’ll have to sit this one out. Then again, I do take credit for starting an Almond Avalanche, so I can wait out the Peach Pandemic.

Feel free to ignore my ridiculousness. >__<

Luthien

@suzi I’ve never had a blueberry tea. I will have to hunt one down!

@hyrulehippie You definitely get points for the Almond Avalanche. ;-)

Luthien – Adagio has had my favorite blueberry tea so far, very natural like fresh berries, but Lupicia had a really nice blueberries & cream blend that tasted like a blueberry muffin. Yum!

Luthien

@suzi Thanks for the suggestions! I can’t order from Adagio sniffle because they won’t ship to Australia, but I will see what the Australian Lupicia store has on offer.
