I’ve had two terrible experiences with making iced tea lately — they just haven’t been what I’ve wanted and so I thought that a “classic” might change things around. Peach iced tea is the gold standard of iced tea for me, for some strange reason. I feel like it’s a perfect & solid summery choice! I hadn’t ever tried these iced tea sachets from Harney & Sons before so I was excited to give them a try. The tea certainly smelled peachy, but when I sipped, I was surprised that the flavor was so light. The black tea is not overwhelming or bitter, but the peach is really hidden. I wish that I had been able to bring out more of that peachy flavor. To be honest, I wouldn’t know that this was a peach tea if I hadn’t seen the tin. It’s certainly drinkable and refreshing, I just don’t think this is fruity enough for me.

Hmm I prefer my peach teas to be strongly peach tasting, so might avoid this one. The best peach tasting tea I’ve had is Perfect Peach by Bigelow, believe it or not. It also makes a passable iced tea. It’s got a black tea base too, but decaf.

I will definitely try to find that tea! Thanks for the recommendation!

I think you may love Nosy Bey from Dammann Frères, this is my favourite peach tea from far and Mélange de Galice (Theodor) is really awesome as well.
