This was the free sample I received with my gigantic box of samples from SerendipiTea.

Normally, a peach tea wouldn’t be something that would pique my interest. But, SerendipiTea is always very good with their flavors and blends, so this is definitely worth a shot.

Steeped, this tea smells exactly like those little peach ring candies. The ones you could buy as a kid in the big giant bulk bins in the supermarket. Or at the Sweet Factory (not sure if those still exist or not… haven’t seen one in a LONG time!).

The taste is good, the peach comes across as flavorful but not overpowering, and there’s still plenty of room for the very smooth black tea base to come through. There doesn’t seem to be any astringency to speak of… which just adds to the remarkable smoothness of this tea. If I were to offer dating advice, I would offer this tea (guaranteed to make all pick up lines come across 200% more smoothly).

It should be noted that I’m thinking about buying more of this tea. Not that my silly self doesn’t buy enough tea… just that this tea is good enough to make me change my thought on whether I should keep a peach tea around. This is quite good.

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
