Still sick, unfortunately, so again I’m waiting to rate the tea until I can actually smell.
Dry, the leaves smell strongly of fresh peach (dare I say Fuzzy Peach candies?) and black tea, with a little ginger. Brewed for 3 minutes, the tea is a lovely reddish colour, and still smells of peach.
I tasted it without sweetener, but it was a little bitter/astringent (honestly I can’t tell the difference right now) for me. I’ll have to try it cold brewed without sweetener in the summer, as that might be tastier than iced. After adding a little honey and soy creamer, this is exactly the tea I was after when I purchased it. A little warmth from the ginger, more of a smell of peach than a taste (possibly due to my cold), and a nice black tea that holds up well to my favoured additives. Yay!
