86

It’s a sunny 81 F in Chicago today and the summer like weather makes this lockdown feel a little less miserable. It also calls for cold brew which is what I did with my last spoonful of this tea. This reminded me of peach cobbler. It has a sweet, jammy peach flavor with some brown sugar notes and a slight roasted edge.

Flavors: Peach

Preparation
Iced 2 g 8 OZ / 236 ML

We’re enjoying a short stretch of 80’s, too; then back into sweatshirts and blankies for Easter weekend. That sounds like it would be lovely on ice with a little mint.

Mint sounds like a great flavor combo, enjoy the warm weather while it lasts :-)

Went a little nuts at the local nursery while it was still open. On deck for this summer’s growing pleasure: apple mint (my favorite), spearmint, and lemon mint

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 many years ago and for a long time my experience was limited to Japanese greens and flavored Teavana teas. My tea epiphany happened when I discovered jade oolongs. That was my gateway drug to the world of high quality tea and teaware.

For the most part, I drink straight tea but do appreciate a good flavored tea on occasion. 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 have started to grow on me. I’m less enthusiastic about puerh though. I also enjoy white tea and tisanes but reach for them less frequently.

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