Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Wednesday, April 13th: National Peach Cobbler Day #2
I bought this during the Boxing Day sale and it seemed like a good day to write about it! Honestly, never had a peach julip before so you can’t trust me on the accuracy with this one. Here we have a green tea base with peaches, sage and osmanthus. An interesting combination anyway! The peach flavor itself seems very different from the peach flavor in their Peach Cobbler blend. I love the flavor in Peach Cobbler. It seems more like a fresh ripe peach, while the flavor here is more like a peach ring candy. Personally, the couple times I have had osmanthus reminded me of peach anyway, so I’m not sure how much that is contributing here. The sage would be very interesting! However, I’m not sure I would even notice that it’s here without actually knowing it’s in the ingredients already. Second steep a bit bland – maybe the parameters weren’t great. Not the most fantastic blend from B&B but I bought it at a deep discount anyway.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon // 32 minutes after boiling // 1 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 30 min after boiling // 2 min
