Backlog from yesterday. I was completely blown away by this yesterday, and by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at Peet’s. I had never been to one but stopped in before a doctor’s appointment, expecting the usual three or four tea options. Instead I got a full menu and a staff who obviously knew what they were talking about and how to brew tea. I’ll definitely be going back!

As for the tea itself, it was amazing. It had the intense stone fruit flavors I love in this type of oolong, along with a slight woodiness and an incredible aftertaste that lingered forever—plum skin, honey, and flowers. I still can’t get over how fruity it was—it might be the fruitiest I’ve tried without flavoring added. I got two steeps out of it and wish I had gotten more (pesky doctor’s appointments!), but I would love this to be a permanent addition to my collection based on that.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
