To say this tea was a hit was an understatement for yesterday’s fam get together.
Yesterday my parents came over for dinner. We rarely seem to have them over for dinner and find ourselves mostly going to their house for any kind of gathering, so I was excited to finally return the favor.
Knowing that my dad was coming, I thought I would make up some iced tea to enjoy with dinner. I was digging thru my tea and saw this package from Teakoe. So far I have enjoyed their Craft Iced Tea line and was excited to sample some of this with my dad and Jason.
This time around, I adhered to the directions on the back of the package instead of just cold brewing the tea overnight like I have before, but I did leave the tea bag in the pitcher and put it in the fridge.
My parents arrived and as I have been taught, I offered them a beverage as soon as they showed up. I asked Dad if he wanted to some tea and he said, “Well Yah!” I gave him his glass and continued getting mom something to drink. Before I had finished getting my mom a glass of sparkling water, my dad is already asking me for seconds on the tea. I couldn’t believe it. I gave him a pretty full cup. So I refilled his cup and gave him and Jason a cup. Before I could finish getting my kids their drinks for dinner, Jason and my dad both are asking for refills. So like I said. . . to say this was a hit would be an understatement.
Jason was out grilling when I handed him his glass and he came in to the kitchen and asked me what I had given him to drink and where would he need to go online to order more. My dad was too busy downing another glass to really add anything more in. Before I was even able to try this tea, the two of them had drained the pitcher and I was hoping the tea bag would hold up to a second steeping. It did.
I was able to try this (I stole a few sips out of Jason’s glass), but I swear this tea tasted like a tea blend with rooibos in it. It didn’t. I looked over the ingredients several times over.
After dinner, Jason and I were talking about the tea and he asked me what was in it. I listed the ingredients on the back of the pouch-peach, ginger, and licorice. He said that he could taste each and every flavor and that it was the perfect iced sweet peach tea with a hint of a wow factor in each sip. I asked him what the wow factor was and he said a hint of a zing with a sweet background. That made me laugh. He couldn’t tell me what he thought of the tea base itself, just that all the flavors worked together and it was pretty darn close to being perfect.
Even tho I may not have cared for the tea, the guys certainly did. To each his own tea I guess and this tea has already been requested as a re-order. I’m happy to oblige! From what I’m hearing from the cheers and praise for this tea, this tea would be perfect to sit on the front porch and enjoy.
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
