The taste from this tea surprised me: it definitely tasted smoky. In a second steeping there was also some wood in it (which I associate with the pit of a peach). Overall the taste combination worked very well.

Tranquility is embodied in this sophisticated fruity oolong tea. Rosehips provide a floral aroma complimented with the sweet, succulent, ripe peaches. This very relaxing treat is further drizzled with strands of honey and the aroma of marigolds for a long finish. Steep Pooki’s Mahi Peach Warrior multiple times for different flavor profiles.

I’m still trying to make this sample from Liquid Proust work for me…
I think my biggest problem is honestly the really rich, intense buttery notes from the base more than anything else. It’s too buttery and that’s a problem because other flavour notes like the roastiness, or lighter floral notes and notes of nuts are getting badly masked.
When I worked at a movie theatre, I remember this sort of ‘inside joke’ type thing where when staff went to the movies (as we often did, because they were all free) we’d get asked at concession ‘would you like butter on that’ with everything. It was a way of poking fun at management’s constant urge to up sell the butter. Well, there were a few times I actually said yes – just to do it. Butter in my sprite, on my nachos, and in a bag of fuzzy peaches…
This is kind of like that butter in the fuzzy peaches except it’s as if there’s more butter than peach candy. Actually, it’s like having a bag of butter and someone through in three or four fuzzy peaches. The peaches are an after thought.
Side note; don’t even get me started on those nasty ass bags of ‘butter flavored oil’ that we used for the free pumps in the lobby. If you’re going to the movies and you want butter on your popcorn pay the damn 50 cents for the real butter. Seriously; it’s fresh, comes solid like butter should and gets slowly melted down like you would at home for fresh popper popcorn. The free stuff in the lobbies is literally butter flavored oil.
I popped one of the bags (they’re like the size of a large bag of flour) by accident once while I was changing it in the lobby and totally wrecked my uniform by drenching myself in that nasty ass oil. I still gag thinking about how bad it smelled; and I swear I could smell it on me days afterwards.
I’ll end on a positive note for the tea though: at least it’s better hot than it is cold.
