This is perhaps my most favorite tea. The scent is pure peaches. Ripe, southern-grown, juicy peaches. The peach flavor isn’t as strong as the scent, but rather it pulls out the sweet notes of the tea and enhances the tea’s natural flavor. It’s one of the most comforting cups I’ve ever had; no matter what has happened, I know I can drink a cup of this and instantly be soothed. Happy Wednesday!
I was lucky enough to visit the Charleston Tea Plantation this past March. It was a wonderful experience that every tea lover should have.
Rockville Raspberry has a very delicate raspberry taste. You can tell that flavoring is used rather than actual raspberry bits, but it is a more natural flavoring rather than the candy-like flavorings I’ve had in other teas.
I can definitely taste a difference between the Charleston Teas and teas grown elsewhere in the world. One sip from any of their teas and I’m transported back to the plantation, where I sat and drank that first cup whilst gazing at the tea plants.
I picked this one up in Chapel Hill, too. The only bottled tea that I’ve ever really had (and that was at least five or so years ago) was peach Snapple tea. I used to really like it. I’ve also been really interested in the Charleston Tea Plantation since I first learned of it. The other day a colleague picked up a DVD from the plantation for me, which was great fun and is keeping this spot in the forefront of my memory.
So, when I saw they had a peach tea, I thought it’d be lovely for iced tea at this time of year. And I really think it was! I carried a bottle of it around with me at Earth Day and it was refreshing and tasty. It was just barely sweetened with sugar in the raw, which I think brought out the peach. Yum!
I haven’t had many fruit teas, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The first thing I noticed was the sweet peach aroma.
When I actually tasted the tea it was more like black tea with a hint of peach. Overall, I enjoyed it for not being overwhelming, but a little more peach flavoring wouldn’t hurt.
I drink this loose leaf tea at home in the South. Makes a great iced green tea and a nice alternative when suffering from a sweet tea overdose. PLUS it comes from the only tea plantation in the United States. I didn’t know until recently that you can purchase it online. Now I don’t have with(Southern)drawal.
