Tea of the Week for June 19, 2017!

Recently, I obtained a beautiful Nilgiri tea that reminded me quite a bit of a first flush Darjeeling. It had a light, crisp ‘greenness’ to it that was very Darjeeling-esque, as well as that light, fruity nature with hints of spicy tones that I enjoy so much with a Nilgiri. It didn’t have quite the ‘muscatel’ that I ordinarily look for in a Darjeeling, but then again, I wasn’t looking for it with this tea so I wasn’t disappointed.

After tasting this tea, I thought it would be perfect for a summer tea – something light and refreshing – something that could be enjoyed hot even on the warmest summer day. And what’s better on a hot summer day than a fresh, juicy, sun-ripened peach?

That’s how this tea came to be. I started with this beautiful, organic Nilgiri tea from Southern India and I added lots of sweet, organic freeze-dried peaches and peach essence. That’s all – just peach – one of summer’s finest fruits!

The flavor is a sheer delight! The peach is sweet but doesn’t overpower the mellow notes of the Nilgiri. The peach seems to actually encourage some of those natural spice notes of the Nilgiri to emerge in a very pleasing way. It’s crisp, it’s light, it’s refreshing. Hints of pepper. The fruit notes of the tea marry well with the peach tones to create a sublime tea experience!

Sipdown (649)!

Well, bit of a cupboard increase again because I just got a big package from White2Tea and the Discovery Tea Box arrived today also; I’ll did into both of those in a little bit, though…

This one is a VariaTEA share, and one that I don’t remember coming out? I must have just missed this one when it was tea of the week because it’s something that would have interested me – if I had noticed it, anyway. I’m finishing my sample off iced because iced peach black tea sounds DIVINE on a hot day like this. It’s interesting; not as sweet as I’d expect from a peach tea, and not as sweet as it smelled either. Neither of those are bad, just surprising. The black tea base is REALLY full bodied and brisk though, much stronger than the peach in the blend. It’s malty and has a bit of citrus pith/cocoa to it as well.

The overall profile, strong black tea and undertones of natural peach, make me think of Southern style iced tea but without any sweetener of any kind. I’m pleasantly surprised by this even if it’s not at all what I expected out of it.

This could also be impacted by age. I got it in June 2017.

this one is pretty “meh” for me. For starters, i don’t really need more peach teas in my life and secondly this is kind of under whelming. It’s peach..but that’s about it and the peach flavour is really almost muted. it’s not BAD…but it’s just average.

For some reason this made me nervous. I think it’s the base tea. Whatever it was, I put off drinking this for a year and now it is in my sipdown box. It is a little more green than I would like and almost floral but there is a nice stone fruit flavor. I don’t know if I am 100% sold on peach but it is fruity and floral and not anything to be scared of. Though not something I will be restocking.

Sad times – this tea smelled like AQ2T’s Peach Crostata (which I adore) initially, but the nilgiri base did not work for me at all. It was very astringent, and very dominant, completely overwhelming any delicious peachiness. It could have been a bit of user error if I oversteeped (possible, I haven’t been timing things for a while now), so I will have to give it a second shot, but I was definitely sad that it wasn’t as delicious as I was hoping.

Try with a slightly lower temperature too – since this is a very darjeeling-esque type of base, I find that 185 – 190 F works better with this tea than boiling water.

I’ll try that, thanks. I felt like it very well could have been something I did because it was sooo astringent.

Backlog from June 12th:

I was surprised after steeping that the tea leaves were very green and fresh-looking; not all, but several looked as though they were freshly clipped. The ingredients list doesn’t show multiple teas, but some are more brown than others, like a roasted color. I’m not at all familiar with Nilgiri tea, but it makes for a light cup, at least compared to the Nepalese black tea I had earlier this morning. The peaches were white, not orange/red like I expected, so they may be a variety of white peach. The peach pieces are quite large and very fragrant. It’s a little bitter, but I’m sure it’s because I steeped it so long. It’s a bit watery for me as well, but I’ll do better about steeping by the package directions next time. I am enjoying the peach flavor.

I’ve found that not all Nilgiri is the same either. This particular Nilgiri turned out to be very Darjeeling-esque, reminding me of of a first flush Darjeeling.

Interesting! I really need to learn more about the different varieties.
