I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while- it just seemed interesting, so with my last order I grabbed a 10cup sample of it.

The leaves (both dry & wet) smell like an orchard. Brisk and fruity and warm. My first thought was “this smells like September.”

My first sip was horrendous. It was bitter bitter bitter. So much so that I couldn’t find any other flavors in it (because I couldn’t keep it in my mouth!). AAH! Since it’s described as having a peachy flavor, I added a generous dollop of honey to it and… wow… Suddenly it was fruity and juicy. There was a nuttiness to it. Maybe not nut so much as that distinctive peach pit kind of taste. Underneath there was a little hay to it? Not quite sure, but hay was my first impression.

It reminds me a little bit of chamomile, but with a pit fruit flavor as opposed to the more appley flavor of chamomile. A nice herbal that I think would be great as a compliment to other teas.
