1885 Tasting Notes
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.
