2 Tasting Notes
I usually drink a few cups of this every day while at work. It has a delicious scent, and when it begins to steep, the peach overtones are extremely noticeable. It has a bit of a long steep time, and when left in too long, I’ve noticed that it does not seem to get bitter.
Although most of my coworkers are addicted to coffee, or other caffeinated drinks, many of them have tried this tea and enjoyed it greatly. You can taste the name-flavors (ginger, peach, red rooibos) without any of them completely overwhelming the others. Also, for thos wanting some of the health benefits of many green teas, minus the caffeine, this could be considered a fair alternative.
On the whole, this is an enjoyable tea to drink, although if you do not like peach or the red rooibos…you may want to go elsewhere.
I’ve been drinking this tea for a while now, and find that the layered flavors go excellently with apple juice as a cold drink, or simply by themselves when hot. I enjoy drinking it year round, and have introduced a few of my coworkers to its delights.
Unlike many other teas, I’ve found that the longer you allow it to steep, the richer the flavors get. I have never noticed any bitterness after forgetting about my cuppa for an hour or so while letting it steep and cool! As a plus, when that happens, tossing in some ice cubes and drinking it chilled makes for a refreshing treat.
