This is one that I got from tattooed_tea. I’m glad to have it in my cupboard!

This tea. It is so unlike what I expected! But still tasty. There aren’t many fruity herbals that I don’t get along with. And I love peachy flavoured things, so how perfect? I steeped it hot and then stashed it in the fridge to sip on later.

When I first opened the packet I was overwhelmed with peachy goodness. I happily stuck the bag under my girlfriend’s nose. “Fuzzy peaches!!”
Yep, she’s right. It smells like fuzzy peach sour candies, which are one of my addictions. At this point I couldn’t wait to try it!

I love the colour that this steeps up to. The deep wine shade was unexpected so I took a peek at the ingredients. Hibiscus? Yep, hibiscus. Onward!

This is pretty tasty as an iced tea, but again, not what I expected. The peachy flavour is prominent, but there’s also a delicious dark berry/currant flavour coming through. Mm, I do love black currant. The tartness of the hibiscus brings everything together. Overall, I like this blend, but it’s not as peachy as I expected based on the name and scent. I don’t think I’d get this one again, but I’ll happily finish off the packet!

Glad you’re enjoying it, because I couldn’t stomach it right from the smell. And I love peachy things.

Strange how we taste things so differently!

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
