Shopping for my newest addiction, Perfect Peach tea bags, sorry, I know bagged tea is a no no for some across the pond. . .but during my latest move, I lost my tea leaf holder ball so only use bags now. A side note, I used to read tea leaves in cups, that was fun.
Back on point, I was at Safeway and they didn’t have my choice so I purchased Organics Peach Oolong tea instead. I made a cup at home right away only to find no peach flavor at all. It was pleasant, slightly floral but no peach. This morning I let it steep longer and it was good, but still no peach.
I decided to write the company and ask what’s up and started looking up oolong and found some interesting facts about it. Intriguing, as there are health benefits to oolong according to most sources, but then WebMD had a list of hazards if you consume more than three cups a day. Btw, I usually have two cups of hot tea a day if I’m chilly, so guess I’m safe.
I think the warnings the W. site posted are a little overboard, but if you decide on drinking a huge amount of any tea, you should probably check them out. Oolong tea is from China of course and was accidentally discovered by a farmer, great story on the net.
I’ll use this tea and add it to my drawer where I have others such as Earl Grey, Plantation Mint, Cinnamon, and Chai. Waaaay back I drank Constant Comment which tastes similar to the now popular Chai, in my opinion.
Now I’m just going to chill with my tea. Have a great Saturday!
