Holy nostrils Batman, this tea smells even better than expected. Peachy cream popsicle. I wish I had smell-o-vision at the moment so you could all enjoy this.

Long, leafy, unbroken tea leaves with lots of cornflowers and safflowers in the mix (I LOVE teas that incorporate these two). The smell though, gosh, that smell. I want to bathe in it and then wear it as perfume.

The flavor is robust, although not very peachy without some form of sweetener. I wish it tasted as good as it smelled – alas, I think that’s impossible.

Still, it’s got a good cream element to it (almost ice cream -like). The peach doesn’t come through as much as I’d like, but I’ve found it really tricky in tea to match peach well.

Must try iced, I have a feeling it’ll be stellar and the peach will shine then.

Was sent this tea for free through my Instagram account (http://instagram.com/teatravelninja/) in exchange for an honest review.

I should note as well that the customer service with this company was impeccable. They reached out, followed up, made sure there weren’t any shipping or duty issues, and were available pretty much 24/7 to answer any questions that I had.

The duty bit was particularly impressive; while they offer free shipping within the US, I was in Canada at the time of this tea testing. They shipped it and ensured there were no duty or taxes owing. Considering another company sent their package COD (and received on the same day, with no warning it was COD), I’d say this was a win all around.

Used DAVID Tea’s “perfect teaspoon” (2.5 tsp) in 12 oz of water, heated to 200F and steeped four minutes.

Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Peach, Sweet

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
