I’ve had the opportunity to sample this tea before, but I had rather mixed feelings about. My original notes said that when I sampled it hot I wasn’t blown away by it, but I did enjoy it. Even a year later my feelings still haven’t changed about that, I just don’t care for this tea as much when it is hot. The flavor seems much more muted and it lacks the depth I taste once the tea has cooled. As an iced tea the flavor really pops. There is a lightly floral flavor and a hint of sweet, juicy peach. So many peach teas go overboard with flavoring and you can’t taste the base tea, but with this blend I can taste the Bai Mu Dan white tea, it adds some much needed depth. This is one of the few peach teas that I could see myself reordering next year. I’ve been drinking it for a solid week straight now and still don’t find myself tiring of the flavor, something that is very rare since I’m a firm believer that variety is the spice of life.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Teawares:

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
