I had been drinking this last night, I did a lazy cold steep on it. Some is still left so I’m eating a real peach with it. I saw something last night say refrigeration makes them less tasty, which I think is a lie. This one is tasty, really juicy, and oh they are so much better cold.

So anyway this tea is odd because it doesn’t have peach in it, it has “peach crunchy” according to the bag. It’s made from pureed peach, tangerine, strawberry juice, and carrot juice. It still pretty much tastes like peach though, maybe a lot sweeter. Then the other strawberry pieces also help with that. There’s a bit of a berry flavor, but it’s mostly peach.

This bag got pummeled pretty badly by UPS, who made it look like the box was dropkicked by an elephant. I’m confused because Teavana sends stuff UPS, and I’ve never gotten a box that looks so horrible, and they’ve dented a few of my DavidsTea boxes but not to the point of causing damage. Both of those companies ship from further away than ESP Emporium. It’s so weird. It seems there’s more dust than usual because of it, so I’ll really probably be sticking to cold steeping this one. It’s perfect for iced tea anyway.

Sounds tasty! Also, I don’t understand how packages get so badly damaged. My first box from Teavivre was half crunched (but the tea inside was so well packed it was ok), my second box from them was also a bit damaged, and I think my first box from Azzrian was damaged too, although it didn’t affect the contents.

You should complain to UPS. I’ve had worse problems with FedEx, who pretty much just sucks. UPS is usually good for me, and I think their customer service is definitely a lot better than FedEx.

I do live where they’re HQ’d so I should try it, but one of my friends had to get a new transmission for her car shipped through UPS and they DROPPED IT and that ruined it, and then they refused to pay up with the insurance.
But I think I’ll give it a try, it’ll be funny if they’re rude and it’s not getting anywhere to just yell I KNOW WHERE YOU WORK and hang up.

If she has insurance on the package, they have a legal obligation to pay up. If she sued, she’d win. Hahaha, I love your idea! Classic!

momo

Yep, the inevitable “if you don’t do it, I’ll sue” got them to finally replace it. It was like the entire thing was a mess to begin with and they only made it worse!

Kittenna

Ahahahaha, I laughed at the “I KNOW WHERE YOU WORK” line too!

CHAroma

Man, I’m sorry to hear that. That really does suck. It’s surprising they didn’t take responsibility sooner, but at least it worked out in the end. Never give up!! Never surrender! :)
