Definitely need to steep this for the full time, or it’s not as good. The peach is a a little lighter than I was hoping, but overall not a bad tea. I also like the smell of the leaves.. mmm.. peachy!
Unfortunately I haven’t found a peach flavored tea that would not taste/smell artificial yet… maybe such thing doesn’t exist at all because a peach flavor is impossible to replicate… who knows.
The best thing about this tea is that while it still tastes and smells artificially like others I tried before it, it isn’t overwhelmingly artificial. It has sort of light peachy flavoring that doesn’t attack your nostrils or taste buds. It feels juicy when it’s hot. After it cools down more woody taste comes through taking the edge of the fruitiness somewhat.
It’s perfectly drinkable but not something I would keep on hand all the time.
Well hello White Peach! We are gonna be friends.
Refreshing is the key word. Light, clean and naturally peachy. The flavor is delicate and the peach taste is not artificial tasting at all. Maybe it’s just me, but I love flavored white teas iced more than hot. I’m positive that this white peach will be the bee’s knees when iced. Mmmm…can’t wait.
I had such very high hopes. I wanted something sweet and light for a bedtime tea and this seemed like a good candidate. The dry leaves are very pretty and smell like actual peaches. Quite misleading, since the actual taste of the tea is very artificial. Maybe I overbrewed, because I also found the fake peach flavor overwhelming. I can’t say much for the white tea base because I couldn’t really make it out. I tried diluting it with ice and even adding a splash of seltzer, but nothing could salvage this tea for me.
This might be improved with a shorter steep and a squeeze of lemon to add some natural sweetness while cutting the artificial taste.
Many thanks to TastyBrew for the sample.
This is another very mild white blend from Adagio. I’m not really impressed with the peach flavoring they’ve used, but it certainly isn’t the worst I’ve come across. This tea is naturally very sweet and while hot the peach flavor is pretty strong. As it cools it mellows out a bit and the peach isn’t as overwhelming. It’s still pretty artificial tasting, but not overwhelmingly so.
I did resteep this, I started out at 4 minutes for the initial steep and 5 minutes for the resteep. It managed to give me a pretty solid flavor the second time around, but it had noticibly less peach.
Took a cup of this with me while I walked to my co-op interview this morning. I don’t know what it is about this tea. Its helped me get through so many high stress situations.
As for the interview, it went okay. They aren’t taking many people, so the odds aren’t in my favor, but one can always hope. XD
This tea is so delicious. The smell is amazing and you can even taste the peach without adding sweetener but the peach really comes out when you do. I used 2 generous teaspoons and I got 2 big mugs out of it (2 separate steepings). Really glad I purchased this one.
This had a really nice aroma as soon as I opened the bag: strong peach fragrance with caramel and smoke – almost like some cobblers I’ve had. The liquor is a bright yellow. The flavor when hot is nice and smooth, the white tea is there, although the peach overpowers it a little. There’s also a brighter note of astringency that works well with the nasal peach finish. Very mellow and doesn’t need sweetener.
The peach flavor and smell are more like peach gummy candy than anything natural, but still nice. As the tea has grown cooler, the artificial peach flavor,as well as the sweetness, has gotten more pronounced.
