Water: 200°F / Leaves: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces / Infusion Time: 4-5 minutes / Ingredients: oolong tea, dried peach, organic licorice root, organic Fair Trade Certified™ hibiscus, natural peach flavor and natural essential tangerine oil. / Origin: Rishi Blend.

Enjoying a cup of this right now.

I have to admit that I’d enjoy it a lot more if there wasn’t hibiscus in this. I think that the hibiscus sort of ruins the natural creamy texture of the Oolong … which is already thick … the hibiscus makes this too thick … I can’t help but think that it would be so much better without the hibiscus.

It’s good, but it could be great.

The peach tones are nice, and accentuate the natural fruit notes of the Oolong. The berry adds a touch of tartness – not sure that it needs that, but I’m OK with that … and this isn’t overly tart even though the hibiscus is there. And I like the faint note of licorice in this … it is so faint … but it is lovely.

Overall, it’s alright … but it could be much better.

I really like this one! And I am finally going to give it a little bit of a review here before I run out the door again!

This is tasty hot or cold.

It says it has licorice root in it but I can’t taste that…and, really, that is perfect fine with me. The Peach is wonderful. The Oolong is incredible crisp and clean and is a juicy accomplice to the peach. It also says it has Hibiscus in it but if it’s there I cannot taste or see it and again I am totally fine with this fact! I can pick up on the tangerine hints and they are delightfully mellow and in the background. There are also small hints of a floral aftertaste which is neat.

I like this very much!

PLEASE NOTE: NO, YOU ARE NOT READING DOUBLE… I POSTED THIS UNDER DELLA TERRA ORIGINALLY BECAUSE I WAS EXHAUSTED. SORRY FOLKS!

this tea was very well done! my experience with peach teas have not been abundantly successful— most of them have tasted like the peaches you accidentally drop kicked at the grocery store (fermented) or like tobacco (i don’t smoke and even if i did i don’t want it in tea). i was also dubious that peach and oolong would pair well… but ShortSorceress and i have similar tastes and this was a sample she included in our mammoth swap recently, so of course i was going to try it!

what i didn’t know was that ShortSorceress has friends in high places… see she called the people at rishi and told them about our awesome exchange. rishi were very sporting.. they explained that they had a store of peaches that they stashed in sawdust in boxes that they kept on the top shelf of their most protected vault (the one with the 200 alpha-numeric access code) for just such auspicious occasions.

this tea is the perfect peach. it is precisely ripened from inside the confines of the super secret rishi vault, it is beautifully balanced with the oolong (neither overpowering the other), and it is confident in its presence with strength in subtlety… like bruce lee and his one inch punch. i never would have bought it for myself… that ShortSorceress is one savvy lady!!!

everything i have said tea-wise is absolutely true, and all the rest? you’ll have to find the rishi vault and climb up to the top shelf to prove me a story teller.

You’ve still got this posted in the wrong place, because this isn’t what I sent you. I sent you rishi’s peach blossom (which is amazing) and della terra’s peach oolong. I haven’t had a chance to even try this one yet, it’s still on my shopping list. I did get a good chuckle out of reading your post though :)
