drank Peach Nectar Tea Bag by Rishi Tea
1475 tasting notes

Mmmmmmno, not impressed. Followed steeping instructions, but didn’t get that great of a cup. It smells like peach, but there is a little hint of a hibiscus bite and a flatness to the flavor. I swear I can taste the bag in the finish. After having teas with such bright and full peach flavor, this one really underwhelms.

I can taste a “papery” or “cardboard” sort of taste from teabags in the water, too. I have to cut them open, dump the tea out, and steep it in a gravity well infuser, teapot, etc. The only bags that I don’t seem to have that taste issue with are the sachet-style ones.

That’s a good fix! When I went to toss the bag I noticed that it seems like it is more of a woven plastic fiber. Like a thicker version of the “silk” bags out there. So I’m now uncertain if it was flavor from the bag or if that taste was in the tea it’s self.

I also disliked this one. It feels like it is really flat and is missing the base or something.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
