I had to make an order from Harney and Sons because this tea was on sale. I had wanted to try it for a while. I like to make iced tea and cold brewed teas but I have never actually bought tea specifically designed to make iced tea before.
The tea comes in huge tea bags. There is a gentle smell of sweet fuzzy peach over the black tea.
I brewed this as recommended on the Harney website, 1 pouch of tea in 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes, remove tea bag and squeeze out liquid, add 6 cups of cold water. I also added a few tablespoons of sugar to sweeten it. I made it last night and then put it in the fridge for today.
It tasted like a medium black tea base with gentle notes of peach. It feels like a thick liquid, with a vegetal aftertaste. It is refreshing and cooling. This makes a delicious iced tea. Right now the weather where I am can be described as winter storm, despite being the middle of April. I had planned to keep this tea and use it through the summer. But I might have to make a few pitchers of tea just to dream of the summer that will hopefully come.
