My Tea Swap partner was extremely generous in making her package(s) for me. She has provided me with several teas that I have never tasted and some that I have never even seen before. I have always been interested in the medicinal qualities of tea. My maternal grandma has been a tea drinker for as long as I can remember. She was the first person I knew who drank loose tea and she was always trying to make us drink ones that tasted bad to help with whatever ailed us. It has been my goal for a while to try to incorporate more teas in my repertoire and to use some of those “nasty” good for you teas when feeling out of sorts.
Of the many teas my partner sent I am going to try
St. Dalfour’s Golden Peach Tea first.The packet states that the tea is 100% pure and natural certified organic tea. My body may not know how to react to it :D
I’m off to enjoy a cup now and will continue this post when I’m done.
Well, this tea lives up to its reputation. The flavor is so delicate and subtle and yet bold enough to stand on its own. It’s an odd, but pleasing combination. I almost always add milk to my tea, I resisted with this one so that I could taste its true flavor. Also, I ruined some teas by adding milk and I was little worried about wasting the only bag I had.
I’m glad caution won out this time. The tea is yummy just the way it is. As predicted, I will now be on the hunt for a local supplier of St. Dalfour tea! Although I could always order those Harmony Guides I’ve been wanting from Amazon and add in a few boxes to my order for good measure :)
