drank White Peach by Adagio Teas
92 tasting notes

Well, that’s odd. I tried the Gemini blend (White Monkey, White Peony, and White Peach) which smelled strongly like sweet peach, and then opened my tin of regular White Peach today, and the peach smell is totally different from the peach smell of Gemini. This smells like delicious, fresh peaches, whereas the Gemini blend smells exactly like those peachy-o’s peach ring gummies. Two very different but definitely peachy flavors.

The taste? Well, it’s light and peachy, and completely different from the Gemini. Instead of an almost-overbearing sweet cloud, the peach in this tea is light, fresh, and better “blended”. By blended, I mean that the peach doesn’t just come in at the tail of the sip, like in Gemini—it’s there throughout the sip. There’s this weird sense of foreboding I get when I drink the Gemini, because I’m end up thinking too much and always notice when that peach cloud sneaks in. With the White Peach, it’s always there. It also has this interesting, “juicy”, refreshing, thirst-quenching quality that is really appealing. Because they’re so different, I can’t say I prefer one over the other. I think if I’m in the mood for refreshment, I’d reach for this one, and if I’m in the mood for sugar, I’d go for the other.

You have me wondering your steeping time… I actually prefer their whites (especially flavored) at 3 min instead of 7. If you like oolongs and are looking for a peach oolong, their Dancong Aria is amazing. Yes, I know it’s unflavored, but I actually described it as peachy keen.

I steeped it for 5 minutes (strong setting on the Zarafina). Also, I love unflavored teas, even more than the flavored kind. I’ll have to check it out.

A lot of companies can have multiple providers for extracts and ingredients. I know that our White Peach tastes and smells much different from our Midsummer Peach (decaf black tea). Of course batches always can differ too, of both the extract and the blended tea.
