peach bellini

you know, it smells an awful lot like peach serenity.

peach serenity ingredients:
Blended With Apple Pieces, Rose Hips, Natural Peach Flavor, Pineapple Pieces, Lemon Verbena, Chamomile Flowers & Apricots

peach bellini ingredients:
Blended With Apple Pieces, Orange Peels, Natural Peach Flavor, Strawberries, Rose Petals, Mango Pieces, Pineapple Pieces, Apricots & Papaya Flavor

I actually read the package this time (yesterday I thought peach serenity was a white tea) so I increased the water temp and the steep time.
again, pretty good.

unsure if I would choose peach serenity or peach bellini for restock, though tbf peach serenity was much more "peach-y" than this is.

steep time: 5 mins
steep temp: 212º F
added: n/a

peach serenity

I got off work early today so I decided to take the opportunity to try a new tea.

I've been regretting never trying teavana's peach tranquility since now that teavana's gone a few folks have posted on r/tea asking for help finding a replacement.  the descriptions sound amazing!
I've also been poking around adagio looking at the earl grey varieties they have and I remembered I've still got the rebound tea samples adagio sent me.

so I dug around and found peach serenity.
I opened the pouch and was assaulted by peach scent.  smells a bit artificial but not necessarily unpleasant.
even after brewing the peach scent is pretty strong.
still not unpleasant, but I don't think I'd want my room to smell like this 24/7.

it tastes much more mild than it smells.
pretty good, imo.
I may order more when I place that order tomorrow.
at the very least I'll keep track and order more in the future.

steep time: 4 mins
steep temp: 185º F

on hold

welp, I've been terrible about updating the blog with what teas I've ben drinking at work.
so, I am gonna officially place this blog on hold for the time being.

I do plan on starting school again soon-ish, and when that happens I'll be back to spending more time at my desk.
until then, I will only update when trying new teas.
