About Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Peet's Coffee and Tea is a company best-known as a coffee roaster. Peet's was founded in 1966 by Alfred Peet in Berkeley, CA, and has since grown into a national chain, although most of their locations are still in California. After a 2001 IPO, Peet's became a publicly traded corporation (PEET on the NASDAQ).

Peet's used to sell teas, both loose and in teabags under their own brand name, until some time in 2015. Their teas covered a fairly wide range of styles. Peet's carried a few organic teas as well as a few rare and single-estate teas. In addition to being available in their coffee shops and a few other retail stores, Peet's teas were available by mail-order through the company website.

In 2014, Peet's acquired Mighty Leaf, a brand of tea. Some time in 2015, Peet's discontinued their own brand of tea and began selling the mighty leaf brand exclusively. We list the old teas and review of them for archive purposes.

A very bold-tasting Jasmine tea. Tried at my friend Fairleigh's house; thank you for serving this!

Dry leaf is very aromatic, with a strong and pleasing jasmine smell, but also the base tea is evident.

Upon brewing, produces a golden-colored cup with a rich, powerful flavor. A good balance of jasmine flavoring ...

Snow Leopard®

Style: White Tea – Region: Fujian, China

Snow Leopard is a white tea though its aroma and flavor seem very close to green tea.

The predominant flavor is one of light grassiness while the taste on the back of the tongue and the finish have a pleasing but very subtle fruitiness.

I tried this in a Peet's in the Philadelphia airport. I let it brew 2 minutes. Peet's said they normally include two teabags but I only used one and saved the other for later--and I'm glad because this tea would have been far too strong.

This is unusually strong for a Darjeeling, but this could just be due to a ge...

Phoenix Mountain Oolong

Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: China

This is Peet's most affordable and gentlest-tasting oolong. It has a nice toasty-grain flavor with hints of fruit, decently complex but not overpowering. Peet's apparently calls it "pungent," but I don't think that's accurate at all.

This tea has an inviting campfire-smoke aroma, but tastes very, very smoky, almost meaty, to the exclusion of the basic tea flavor. If you're looking for a less intense smoky flavor, try the Scottish Breakfast (still a little strong for me) or the Russian Caravan (which I love).
