From Handmade Tea

Wolf Peach Island Tea starts with a bold black tea base from the Yunnan province of China. Tomato pieces are added for an earthy subtle sweetness. Lastly sage is blended in for an aromatic treat that makes the blend a touch woodsy. The tomato and sage play together perfectly creating a very palatable overall combination. This is a savory tea that tastes great hot or iced.

Of my handmade tea subscription, this tea was the one I was most excited for after it came out. It took a long time for me to get it, but now I have it and couldn’t wait to try it.

The dry tea reminds me of a cannelloni with a cream tomato sauce. It smells thick, creamy, and sweetly tomato-y. Now I am not a tomato fan. I mostly do not like tomatoes. I will eat it if it is sliced on a hamburger or sandwich, but other than that, I only like tomatoes in ketchup, tomato sauce and salsa. The smell is sweet tomatoes, with sage, the Yunnan is thick underneath the savory tomato scent.

The brewed tea tastes like a medium bold Yunnan tea, smooth. There is a sweet tomato flavour with the sage taste underneath the tomato. There is a slightly salty taste to the tea. I still get a bit of that pasta taste, which I presume to be from the Yunnan tea.

This tea is so delicious. I am still going to say I don’t like tomatoes, but I am going to hoard this tea to myself until it is sadly all gone!

WTH

This tea is just weird! And I can’t stop sipping it!

Another Here’s Hoping Travelling Teabox tea – it’s a yunnan black with tomato, sage and peach. I really dont’ taste the peach, but there’s plenty of tomato and sage.

First sip I thought “Tastes like Turkey Dinner.” The tomato is actually pretty addictively good and the base is not bad. Sage is a little over the top is the only thing holding it back until I remember there’s supposed to be peach in there, which is not present.

I might have to jack this tea.. it’s so weird!

I loved this review, Awkward Soul! The name is a bit confusing but! there actually isn’t supposed to be peach in this blend. “Wolf Peach” is the translation of the scientific species name for tomatoes. Here is a better explanation from Wikipedia:

“The scientific species epithet lycopersicum means “wolf peach”, and comes from German werewolf myths. These legends said that deadly nightshade was used by witches and sorcerers in potions to transform themselves into werewolves, so the tomato’s similar, but much larger, fruit was called the “wolf peach” when it arrived in Europe."

Awkward Soul

Ahhh, that makes sense! I did take this tea from the teabox, so more tomato sweet tea for me!

Backlog from yesterday!

I love this savory tea! The tomato is slightly sweet and the sage is super strong. It works well with the sweet black base that is just the teensiest bit smoky.

I had it with some fresh mozzarella plus tomatoes and basil from the garden out back. Yum!

My first Traveling Tea Box tea. The description was so weird I had to try it!

Initial impression: Weird. But I think I like it. I feel like I shouldn’t like it but I do.

Heavy on the tomato flavor, the sage is subtler underneath it. It’s like drinking tomato soup, but in tea form. Very very strange. But a good strange. I think. My brain and tongue can’t make up their minds on what I’m tasting.

:) love this review! I admit the tomatoes are a weird ingredient, but as you’ve found, the flavor plays pretty nicely with this blend. My goal was to introduce a lovely ingredient that isn’t exactly traditional, I’m glad you enjoyed! :)

One of the teas from my first traveling tea box! I love this box, it’s a great way to experience different teas. I hope to do more.

The dry tea had a very strange smell to me that I couldn’t place, definitely nothing delicate or fruity… Almost “mealy” like. Haha I’m so horrible at describing things in words! The smell once steeped calms down a bit, smells almost like a black tea but with a little something else added in.

So I’ve seen people describe the taste as tomato soup in tea form, and I think even one said cannelloni? There’s definitely truth to these! I can pick out the tomato and the sage gives me a feel for italian seasoning. So yes, tomato soup and/or cannelloni in tea form! Too bad it’s a black tea, as they just aren’t my favorite.
