drank Peach Blossom by Rishi Tea
465 tasting notes

Like many other people I’ve been working from home for the past week because of the Coronavirus crisis. Although I hate being confined indoors, it has given me plenty of tea drinking opportunities. This was a sample I received with my Rishi order a while back. I love peach flavored anything and this tea was no exception.

The smell of the tea is incredibly sweet with juicy bursts of tangerine, pineapple, and peach. Brings back fond memories of Teavana’s Fruta Bomba. The taste is less intense than the aroma though. It has a gentle peach-pear flavor that’s light and refreshing. The peach flavoring tastes natural and complements the white tea base nicely. There’s quince in the blend but I couldn’t pick it out in the tea. As someone who finds most flavored teas overpowering, I can appreciate how well-balanced this one is.

Flavors: Orange, Peach, Pear

My Rating Criteria:

95 to 100: Top shelf stuff. Loved this tea and highly recommend it

90 to 94: Excellent. Enjoyed this tea and would likely repurchase

80 to 89: Good but not great. I liked it though it may be lacking in some aspects. I’ll finish it but probably won’t buy again

70 to 79: Average at best. Not terrible but wouldn’t willingly drink again

60 to 69: Sub-par. Low quality tea, barely palatable

59 and below: Bleh

Fell into tea years ago, and for a long time my experience was limited to Japanese greens and a few flavored teas. My tea epiphany came a few years ago when I discovered jade oolongs. That was the gateway drug to the world of fine tea and teaware.

With the exception of a handful of lightly scented teas, I drink mostly straight tea. I love fresh green and floral flavors and as such, green tea and Taiwanese oolongs will always have a place in my cupboard. After avoiding black tea forever, Chinese blacks are beginning to grow on me. I’ve dipped my toe into a few puerhs now but it’s still relatively new territory for me. I also enjoy white tea and tisanes but reach for them less frequently.

Other non-tea interests include: cooking, reading, nature, MMA, traveling when I can, and of course putzing around on the interwebs.
