When I first discovered tea, I took a trip to Teavana and stocked up on a whole bunch of tea. This is one I was particularly excited about because the dry leaf smells almost identical to fuzzy peaches. However, none of that translated into the taste when I tried it both hot and iced. I passed the rest of my stash along to a friend and thought I was done with this. Then I discovered cold brewing. I was always amazed at how different a cold brew could taste from an iced tea despite both being cold so as I continued to try new teas prepped with that particular method, I started to think about this tea and determined I wanted to try this to see if I could finally pull out the fuzzy peach goodness that the smell promises. Luckily, Inkling was kind enough to pass along a sample so I did not have to commit to a whole overpriced 50g worth from the store.
As I sip on the cold brew, I must say that it actually it much closer to fuzzy peaches than I have found with any other method. Unfortunately, without the little sour kick that the candy has, I am finding this tea to come off rather flat. Imagine a fuzzy peach but someone already licked off the sugar crystal layer on top…something is just missing. Also, I am getting more apple than peach and there is zero pineapple to be found. Well, at least now I know for sure this isn’t for me and I won’t remain wondering so thank you Inkling for helping me figure that out. Plus, since the cold brew was at least drinkable, I am upping my rating of 30. 179.
