Noms. I understand the hype on this one. This is a really tasty peach tea. I’ve been off peach for a while but this didn’t set that “tired of peach” off in my brain. Instead i found myself at the bottom of the cup before i realised it. it’s smooth…i really like the base in this one and how it works with the peach. This is not your peach drink sort of tea..this is nice peach :)

Oh nice, I haven’t been crazy over peach in tea so it’s great to hear it stands out from the crowd.

Sil

yeah this one is really nice. Not sure it’s enough for me to want to go buy a bunch since i’m still “off” peach teas but i’d revisit this one

Fjellrev

Would you say it’s a realistic peach flavour? I think my issue is that most peach teas taste like artificial juice crystals to me.

Sil

mmm probably need kittenna or variaTEA or Evol to weigh in on that. i feel like it’s closer…

Tried this one out today – have a bit left for another cup. Initial impressions, good lemon creamy sort of blend. I’d be interested in seeing what adding a little sugar to this would do. Not in love with it enough to buy a wackload more, but still enjoyable.

drank Earl Bay Earl Grey by A Quarter to Tea

yes. SIL bought a couple earl grey’s…willingly. This one is not so bad. I suspect it’s the vanilla that’s smoothing out the blergamot for me. So it’s more lemoney than blergy. I still wouldn’t need to keep this in my cupboard or anything, but i drank the entire cup and it was decent :) not rating this sine i’m not an EG fan…but MY rating would likely be about a 70.

CrowKettle

I thought this one wasn’t bad either; you can almost not tell it’s an Earl variety! :P

Rest day today, so i’m working from home. Giving me a chance to not only try out the samples for the new teas we joint ordered but also drink up some oldies. Kicked off the morning with this one for fun :)

drank Dawn by Turmeric Teas

Had this one the other day, along with a bunch of others. Still around and drinking tea but barely have time to make notes between work overload, trying to run 3-4 times a week and holding down the fort as much as possible while my other half works obscenely long days at his various jobs. Im’ going to miss this one when it’s gone. there’s something about the turmeric and their chai that i am a fan of. Even my other half loves the smell of this one in the house when i brew it.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
