This was a free sample included in the Lupicia Monthly Magazine. Upon tearing open the tea sachet foil package, my nose was hit with a scent of ripe peaches and peach blossom. The floral notes were quite strong, but the fresh, ripe peach was still there. I wasn’t exactly sure how to steep this, but learned after looking at their website that it was a green based tea, so I decided to heat my water to 175F and steep for 1:30min.
The liquor is a light olive green, almost a matcha esque color, but more transparent than matcha. The aroma steeped is still peachy floral. The taste is similar to peach candy, almost reminds me of a peach bellini or Wallaby darned at Outback steakhouse. Sweet peach liquor with a touch of floral. The green tea base is buttery and a great pair with the peach flavors in this. I really enjoy this new tea!
