From Nichole. :)

This smells very sweet and fruity, generically fruity really, but I can maybe see where the stone fruits come in. The tea itself isn’t very flavorful actually. It’s a little bland. It’s fragrance is definitely stronger than its taste.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 205 degrees + 26 minutes

I left this on my desk for a really long time and even with the longer steep and higher temperature I’m still not getting much flavor. Maybe this one just doesn’t re-steep well, but I wasn’t happy with the first cup either.

Had to try this one first. It reminded me of the babe. Anyway, one teaspoon in eight boiling ounces after 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Peach, apricot, malt, and sweetness primarily come through. I could partially taste the other ingredients, but the ones I listed were dominant and mildly astringent. The peach was intentional, and any fan of the movie would know why. It was so smooth and so sweet on its own-no need for sugar whatsoever. Can’t say that cream, sugar and honey wouldn’t compliment it though.

It certainly made my day. Little obscure references are too few. I needed a reminder of one. Thank you Nicole, and thank you Geeky Teas!

I think almost anyone would enjoy this, but the audience is obvious. Some oolong lover might enjoy this one if they brew it lighter to get the same type of apricot note in their tea. Newbies would certainly like it, and certain connoisseurs might make an exception for flavoring this once.
