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.
