drank White Peach by Nestea
2238 tasting notes

First iced tea of the year! I know it was a bad choice, but the return of the hot weather (and it’s REALLY hot today) caught me unprepared and I reached for the nearest cold thing. It happened to be this, from my parent’s Dolche Gusto machine. The thought also appealed because I’ve had a good few peach teas in the last week or so, and I’ve enjoyed them all, so continuing the peach theme…

This is okay. If you like ultra sweet, ultra artificial iced “tea” then this is perfect. I don’t, really. I mean, I like sweet things up to a point, but this one goes overboard for me. There’s also very little tea in here. It’s the right colour for iced tea, but you can’t actually taste it. I think it’s an “extract” rather than actual tea, given that the pod is full of some kind of powder and sugar, but as the main flavour is clearly supposed to be fake peach then maybe I should have expected that.

I can’t say this was enjoyable as a tea, but as a cold thing on a hot day it ticked one box. I’d not choose to drink it again, though. There are so many better things around.

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
