One teabag of this was sent to me as a swap by Jude, and since I’ve decided to try and sip down a bunch of teas lately, this was the perfect candidate.
I was a little surprised by the instructions on the Republic of Tea website saying to steep this tea in boiling water, but I complied. I even let it steep a little longer than recommended – probably about 6 minutes instead of the 3-5 minutes stated on the site – but it still turned out okay. The peach flavour is really strong, but doesn’t completely overshadow the oolong, and I liked that the oolong here was of the more roasted variety.
Not a bad mix, but considering where I live, not one I’d probably ever encounter again. Thanks, Jude!
