drank Peach Oolong by Tealicious Teas
1015 tasting notes

I received this tea today as a generous sample from Tealicious Teas! Thanks again! I love when a company provides a nice size sample so that I’m able to play around with different preparations and don’t feel as bad if I really mess up an attempt or two. This tea has a very candy peach scent rather than a natural peach scent, but it is a very juicy, inviting aroma. The first sip of this medium roast oolong didn’t give me much. I mean, there isn’t much of a taste. I added a bit of sugar in an attempt to coax the peach flavor out, but…..not much besides sugary water. Usually a bit of sugar can “hide” in a tea, but in my cup it is very obvious that sugar was added. I don’t know if perhaps I’ve had so many strongly flavored teas today that I’m unable to appreciate a lightly flavored tea but I’m not really feeling this tea. If a second attempt proves to be more successful, I will change the rating but as it is, I’m pretty glad this was a free sample.

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
