Taster’s Review:

It took me a few sips to come around with this Peach Blossom tea from Fusion Teas.  That is to say, my first sip … I wasn’t all that excited about this tea.  My reaction was kind of “meh … whatever.” The second and third sip … there was a little improvement to my attitude, but, not enough for me to say that I really enjoyed it.  But I was still sipping on it, so that is a good sign.

By the time I reached mid-cup, I realized that I was actually … liking it!  And now that the cup is nearly finished, I can say that this is a really interesting cuppa – and definitely worth exploring.

I think that my initial reaction was due to the fact that I was expecting more of an Oolong presence in this tea … and I found myself “feeling” the Oolong more than I was tasting it.  That is to say, I could taste that smooth, rich texture that I experience with an Oolong, but nothing that really tasted overtly OOLONG to me.  Then again, I wasn’t tasting anything overtly black tea or green tea to me … what I was tasting was something of a cross of the three … or dare I say it?  A FUSION of the three types of tea.

Which I guess is exactly the point of this blend.  It is indeed a fusion of teas … it possesses qualities of all three types of tea in the blend … and none of the three takes over.  I taste the lovely jasmine notes which really make this blend shine … and the peach is a soft and delectable fruit note.  I love the way these two notes – the fruit and the flower – play off one another.  It’s really quite pleasant.

Overall, I really enjoyed this cup … even if the first few sips were not quite as memorable as the last few!  And this is really tasty as an iced tea – that’s where it really SHINES!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
