I just received my large order of tea from Liquid Proust Teas. This tea was the first one I tried because I asked my wife which one she wanted to sample first and this was the one.

The name of this is so appropriate. At first I thought this was just a kind of quirky name for the sake of having fun. But after smelling and tasting this tea, I get EXACTLY how he came up with the name. The dry leaf scent of bergamot come through with a peachy note intertwined. It is enough to catch your attention. But the magic really happens when the leaves are steeped.

The liquid has such a sugary sweet peach note that my wife and I couldn’t stop smelling the cup. It is seriously bordering on magical how a tea is able to elicit such a sugary sweet note on the nose. The wet leaf definitely lets the bergamot shine. The taste on the tongue alternates between the peach and the earl grey type of flavor. Like I said, with the whole scent and tasting experience, the naming of this tea becomes obvious. I think the choice of the formosa is really an understated key as to why/how this tea becomes more that just an average tea. I think it lends itself well to create the sugary sweet peach here.

Really fantastic introduction to Liquid Proust Teas.

I have now completed some tea swaps and I am so totally up for swapping! What a cool way to connect with fellow tea lovers and try some new teas. My tea cupboard on here is woefully out of date though.

Black tea has been my go to tea for some time. Oolongs are good too but mainly roasty oolongs. I’m finding that there are some green and white teas (mostly Moonlight Whites) that impress me lately which they never used to do. I am getting into and developing a taste for Pu-erh. I have tried raw and my Ulcerative Colitis just can’t handle the roughness of it. So I stick to ripe Puerh. I am recently drinking more herbal tea or Rooibos especially STRONG ginger blends. I’m not too picky.

Some of my favorite places from which to purchase tea are Whispering Pines Tea Co, Verdant, A Quarter to Tea, Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co, Bitterleaf Tea, and Yunnan Sourcing.

Rating system:
90-100: Some of the best I’ve ever had. I’d be a fool not to keep it stocked as often as possible
80-89: A damn good tea. Not to be missed
70-79: A good tea but lacks the wow factor. More than likely a simple tea that could be an every day option
60-69: Eh. This is okay. Not swill by any means but fairly underwhelming.
50-59: Not really doing it for me. I’ll finish it but please don’t bring me any more.
Below 50: Life is too short to waste on things such as this
