In the sample bag this smells like a cobbler—heaven! There’s fruit, spices, maybe even some bake-y notes. Surprisingly, it’s a totally different tea when steeped. I tried this hot and cold brewed, and both times it was very very fruity. The peach and apple are quite natural tasting, but strong, to the point where the black base is kind of hanging out in the background. There are some nice malty notes and I think they picked some pretty strong teas to go with these flavors, which is good otherwise they’d be lost entirely.

There are no cinnamon or bake-y flavors at all in the brew, so it’s definitely not the tea I was expecting. Iced, though, it’s really lovely, fruity and bright. Great with a slice of lemon while watching summer storms! Sometimes a tea doesn’t meet your expectations but surprises you in other ways, which this one definitely did.

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
