3 Tasting Notes
This is by far my favorite tea from Teavana. Previously I had been in love with Snow Geisha, but one visit my boyfriend convinced me to try a new brew, and I chose this one. Instant love!
This is a tea for tea-lovers-who-love-sugar-and-sweet-in-everything. The flavor of the tea itself is there, but also heavily mixed with the peach and fruity essences. Upon first sip, your taste buds are hit with the sweetness of the fruit, which then mellows to the more subtle flavor of the tea leaves.
I’ve made this tea both hot and also iced, and I find that though it works well both ways, I prefer it hot since the flavor of the tea tends to mellow as it chills.
If you’re looking for a sweet and fruity tea, definitely try this one – it’s the one tea flavor that I hoard in my cupboard year-round, as a delicious pick-me-up.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a newbie when it comes to teas. I had heard all of the instructions on the “right” temperature to make tea at, the proper steeping time, but it seemed to me that a few degrees more or less (or leaving the tea in the water for a bit longer) wouldn’t REALLY make that much of a difference.
Cue the Breville tea maker.
I received it as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend (now Fiance – any guy who gets his girl a $200 gadget to just make tea is a keeper!) and tried it out the next day on some Peachberry Jasmine Sutra tea from Teavana.
Oh. My. Gosh.
Not only was this gadget easy to use (with the push buttons for tea, hot water, and strength of tea) but the combination of the perfect temperature water and perfectly-timed steeping made my tea taste better than I had ever tasted it before. And that INCLUDES the times I would buy a cup of it from the store.
Now, six months later, I still use the Breville every day. The timer function comes in handy for early mornings (prep everything the night before and set it to turn on like a coffeemaker at a particular time) and the hot water function makes it fabulous for bringing hot water-and-a-tea-bag anywhere.
I would suggest this to ANYONE – it is one of those gadgets that, once you have it, you will never want to live without!
