I was really happy Stacy introduced this flavor after the Peach Hoppitea ran out – I’m not a beer drinker, but I found the sample that came with one of my long-ago Butiki orders to be really interesting. I guess that sample had been sitting around for a while when I got around to trying it, because what I’m drinking now tastes WAY more heavy on the hops. It’s maybe a little intense for me, even after sweetening, but I’m still intrigued. I’m almost done with my cup now, and I still can’t quite put my finger on this tea – some sips seem mostly peachy and somewhat mild, and others pack a hoppy wallop, as though the two main flavors are competing for dominance. But that’s far from a complaint. I’d like to see what someone with more beer-tasting experience has to say about this one.
I’m not sure this will become one of my favorites, but it does leave me in awe of Stacy’s blending skills. She is a treasure, and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to taste so many of her creations.
