2) Use: Get a Torani squirter/pump to go with it ( Torani Syrup Pump ). Makes the stuff that much handier to use and easier to measure (One-and-a-half squirts is what you like? Two? Quick and easy.) Clean the spout after every pitcher/gallon and you're good to go. Until you're sure you like it you can just use a shot glass... two shots will do a big drinking cup. The squirters are a little expensive, but if you like this stuff it's worth it convenience wise. (Word of caution though: For any of you with ant problems do NOT get a spout.)
3) Peach is definitely one of the "stronger" fruit flavors. If you like it, explore Mango and Passion Fruit. Mango is a little weaker, but pairs nicely with others (see point 7 below).
4) Storage: Room temperature. The restaurants that use this stuff do the same. It's too high a bottle to keep in most shorter cabinets, let alone your fridge. (Even more so with a spout.)
5) How quick it goes: Most people tend to enjoy a larger dose tasting similar to how restaurants make it (think two shot glasses full per glass). In this case you'll burn through about half a bottle per gallon at that rate.
6) Your whole family will almost surely burn out on the stuff before using up 3 bottles. That's ok... it keeps.
7) Once you've been using this stuff for a while and are starting to get bored, start mixing multiple flavors together. Works very nicely and creates a drink no guest will ever have had before but is delicious. ("This is great... what is it?")
8) Do NOT be tempted to mix it directly into the pitcher/gallon. Put it in the glass after you pour your tea. Once you squirt it in the glass, it mixes pretty well by itself but feel free to stir it.
9) As others have stated, this is what most chain restaurants use when selling flavored tea. This makes it easy to try some of the other common flavors like raspberry to see if you like it.
10) Price. $17 is a solid deal that beats probably 90% of sellers. You can find it a buck or two cheaper if you spend a lot of time looking, but this is really a commercial product and hence primarily sold in those channels. You won't likely see this anywhere you shop unless you happen to be a restaurant owner so I advise buying it here on amazon. (And no, I haven't been able to find a good deal on single bottles.)
11) Other drinks. Most people find/buy this product for use in tea. While I personally don't prefer peach as an additive to sodas, don't be afraid to experiment. Alcoholic drinks too. Some of the flavors go well with various non-tea stuff.
12) Corn Syrup. A lot of it. It's actually a big part of why a lot of people like this in tea because people usually don't put enough sugar in their tea. You're buying something called syrup, so don't fool yourself into thinking this is some healthy option. There are sugar-free flavoring by Torani, but you're buying this to make stuff taste better right? I'd rather drink gasoline than something sugar free.
Five stars because Torani is the best of such products. Flavorings are accurate. Mixes well. Reasonably affordable. If you don't like Torani, you just don't like syrup flavorings.
