|Peaches&Cream from DT|
This tea smells like booze. Dead serious. This tea (which you can not buy save for a limited time as part of the entire spring collection - no tins of this baby for you) smells like peach and strawberry schnapps.
It's surprising, but also very enticing and delicious. It gives you high hopes.
After a strong seven minutes (I wasn't confident in the amount they provided in the little sample pouch) of steeping, I made our entire basement smell of some kind of over-priced cocktail on steroids. The aroma is... well, pungent. Which really intensifies the underwhelming flavour of the tea.
It tastes (barely) of peach flavour and strawberries with a nice creamy punch of vanilla. If this were, say... at least five times stronger, I would most likely really really like this tea. But I would need more of it, which I can't actually purchase without getting four other teas you possibly have zero interest in. And you won't get a lot of it.
This was so close to being something fantastic. So close.
I am really on the fence about this one. I want more, but I don't want to fork out $25 for the entire spring collection just so I can get 25 grams of it.
