I honestly can’t wrap my mind around the low-ish rating on this one. This is my favourite peach tea I have found in my tea tasting history. And that includes loose leaf! This is a true peach, none of those scents like bath and body works or flavours like peach tang. This, when brewed, tastes like someone has dripped juice directly from a peach into your glass. My only sadness is that this is a small brand that was bought out by Bigelow. Which, yay getting the tea to more people, but still, I wish more independent companies were just that, truly independent.

Bigelow Tea

Tina, we are very happy to hear how much you enjoy the Peach flavor, in the Charleston Plantation Peach. Although Bigelow, a small family owned company, did obtain this piece of the business, please rest assurred that the Charleston Tea Gardens will continue to offer their teas true to that of an independent company.

Kathy,

I greatly hope you are correct, and the integrity, high quality, and exceptional formulating of Charleston Plantation teas will not be pillaged, as so often happens when small companies are gobbled up by larger ones. It is ironic that I am reading this note now. I just picked up a tin of Plantation Peach tea an hour ago at one of our local markets in Fort Mill, South Carolina. The Charleston Tea Plantation has been very special to South Carolinians for a long time. It has more recently become special far beyond our beloved state.

As the only working tea plantation that remains in the United States, it is very important that the Charleston Tea Plantation be allowed to continue to flourish using the excellence that can only exist from independent effort.

Sincerely,

Stoo (A concerned Charleston Plantation Tea lover)

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
