A tea bag from Derk. Well, I think itwill be only US political tea bag I will have in my collection. Thank you, I bet others will envy me.

And it is 9.22 pm now. Which means, of course, a caffeine-free “tea”. Moreover I am still somehow hyped from energy drink I had to buy in a vending machine – in a work.

Peach and mint? Plus rooibos? Combo. Weird combo. We will see. I think I let it steep for 5+ minutes. Dunno exact time. Makes golden-bronze-copper colour.

Eh, okay. The smell is bit funky. Peach, but artificial, mint reminds me bit bubblegum, all together with woody scents.

Maybe I am bit sad that my (Swiss) friend is in Ecuador now? I feel like somebody betrayed me. Another friend (that one I was on his place while kids were in my home) is in Italy now. And I am just working every day. And then? I will spend it all on University. Okay, something I can take away, but I will need it later to pay it. Ahhhh! I need week off on holidays (and I know I just returned yesterday from one). But somewhere alone probably. Just enjoying the life. I was thinking about Austria. Gonna find out if it will work.

I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can’t rely on myself

Tea itself is, actually quite okay. Not great. It reminds me really a bubblegum. Minty taste with sweet taste of artificial peaches. I did not liked it as much as I expected.

Chocolate pairing: Fig Lindt chocolate. How delicious – Fabiana, this was one of greatest you gave me.

Flavors: Artificial, Peach, Spearmint, Sweet

Preparation

It’s hard when your friends are scattered all over creation and not nearby for some eyeball-to-eyeball time when you need it!

gmathis: luckily, it is not so bad. I just felt bit blue yesterday :)

Hope your “color” continues to improve! And regarding the tea—peach + rooibos is generally good, or any fruit tea + mint, but like you, I’m not sure about all three together. I have so much mint growing on my back porch, I have plenty to experiment with … I may have to try it with a straight-up peach tea.

Way too tired to write a decent review. Whirlwind of a week. Bought a truck which was a big deal. I didn’t have a 4-wheeled vehicle for over 8 years. That’s crazy looking back. I relied on my bicycle, public transit and my motorcycle for so long. Then a real job landed in my lap, which I’ve been working for the past several days. I had an interview for another real job which I should find out about tomorrow. I also started powerlifting again this past week and am forcing myself to do cardio. breathe

All three of my housemates love this tea. I make a pot o’ tisane most nights per week for the house and they request this once or twice every week which means I’m quickly running low on stock. Housemate #3 says he loves the peach flavor of this tea because it doesn’t taste artificial. Housemate #2, who normally adds honey to her teas, says this is flavorful and sweet enough that she doesn’t add a spoonful. Housemate #1 says the tea is moderately minty. Tonight was the first time I had this and I’m exhausted so I don’t have an opinion as of yet. Probably fits my preference reference scale somewhere in the 70s to 80.

Congrats to you. Hope everything works out with the new job.

This inspires me to experiment! My apple mint is already in need of its first cutting. Never thought of combining with peach!

Martin Bednář

Congrats as well to a job. And tea sounds interesting. Probably not my cup of tea, but interesting for sure.

Congrats!

ashmanra

Woot! Woot!

Roswell Strange

Hooray! Sounds like all good things! ^^

Mastress Alita

Huzzah!

Also, I just now noticed you actually changed your bio to the spam bio. Pfffffffffffffffffffffffft. So good!

derk

Thanks y’all.

gmathis: I’ve not had apple mint but that sounds like it would go well with peach. The mintiness in this rooibos tea I guess comes from a minty variety of tulsi. I did find Moroccan mint at the nursery and planted a pot. Let’s see what I can mix it with this summer!

Congrats on all the things. :D

Sampler Saturday! Thank you, derk! I received this tea from derk while I was having a hard few months, and really appreciated the laugh… especially since it all started from me making a comment on one of those many “wellness” blends about where the “peachy impeachment” teas were, and then Todd actually finding that one existed, hahaha. Which just proves, there really is a tea out there for everything. Now the real question… does it work? I’m betting it works about as well as every other over-promoted “wellness” tea, heh…

Steeped up a pot using both of my teabags in my doubin, and it certainly smells very peachy! It is actually a surprisingly nice blend, for something that is selling off the gag. It isn’t the sort of peach flavor that is on par with Lupicia or 52Teas, but it doesn’t taste oddly artificial or have any of the strange metallic notes I sometimes get with flavorings. It actually tastes slightly floral to me, giving me an odd peach blossom association; perhaps its from the honey sweetness in the rooibos base which is reading more as a floral/honeysuckle sort of flavor to me in this tea. I do taste the tulsi, and it’s bringing in mostly mint and pepper notes. Mostly I’m getting a sweet floral peach flavor, and it’s a quite relaxing cuppa.

Thanks again, derk!

Thanks, derk! Even though she told me there was an envelope on its way to me, and even though we had discussed this tea’s existence, I was pleasantly surprised to receive it.

The smell of the bag and the brewed tea is quite peachy. The taste is peach too, with a subtle mint note that’s a bit peppery. The flavors go well together.

For a political pun of a tea (which I enjoyed), this is quite a tasty tea. Thanks. I may have to buy more as gifts.

I got some today to try as well! Thank you, Derk!

Looking forward to you and Derk having a brew session this weekend!

derk

I know you’re on a hiatus Mastress Alita. If you consider one of the bags as meme-orablia, and the other bag as a good chuckle, then I didn’t send any tea at all!

Another humble Steepster gathering in San Francisco. I’m tickled.
