Breakfast tea! Thanks 221tea for the sample! I’m always up for trying another Stash blend – and you made this one sound very good so I was excited to receive it.

I think this is my first Stash tea in something other than a straight up bag; this one is in pyramid sachets/pouches like H&S does. There didn’t look to be a lot of leaf in it though, so I made it in a smaller cup. I didn’t want this coming out thin because I used one of my regular/larger mugs.

It was very good though and I’m happy with the mug choice because the flavour was quite rich! It’s hard to explain though other than saying that this simply tastes just like peach cobbler with just a the faintest impression of the guayusa in the aftertaste. There’s a nice balance of cinnamon to the peach to give this a sort of “crust” like depth on top of the juicy peach filling flavour, as well.

I shared one sachet with VariaTEA – but I look forward to my last cup of this, while I also kind of want to post pone it because I think I’ll miss this blend very much. As a non-peach lover I was really satisfied with the taste of this one.

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually nearly two years ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious obsession.

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in straight milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile, sometimes mango or peach

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends, and anything with Goji berries

I also write reviews for SororiTea Sisters! Typically what I post there is more edited, focused and expanded reviews of what I’m posting here. Unless I was sent a tea specifically to review for the blog, I will post here first.

If the tea was sent to me specifically to review there then the full review will only be posted there, and my Steepster review will just contain a snippet of the review and a link to the full review on the SS site.
