This was actually not too bad, if on the artificial side. Might be better iced?
1 part White Peach to 1 part Wild Strawberry was my pitcher of iced for yesterday and this morning. Yum. Lightly sweet and fruity without needing any sweetener, and definitely refreshing. I don’t officially have this one in my cupboard, because I usually blend it for iced tea. I blended by weight, and needed to break up the hibiscus in the Wild Strawberry a little.
This looks like white tea with peach. The smell I’s white tea with abit of peach. I steeped it up. This tastes like a nice light tea with a medium peach taste. This tea I’s pretty good. Now I am not putting a score because I am not good at that.
My first purchase from Adagio. I love their packaging, service, speed of delivery… very professional setup there. Solid website too.
This tea was very nice, the leaf size is huge but the 1.5oz pack just exactly fits in their tins. The flavour is mild but very tasty, the smell is nice and peachy and the flavour is not overcome by the fruit. A great combo of flavours, and you can really taste the quality of the underlying tea.
It’s not quite as epic as the Melon White Tea from Lupicia, but it’s $8 rather than $13 so at about 60% of the price, it’s definitely worth keeping in your cupboard as it’s a pretty darn solid contender for awesome.
This is my first experience with loose teas, and I have to say, I am a bit underwhelmed by this tea. It is certainly drinkable, sure, and I do make several cups every day. However, I am not impressed with the peach flavor, and I do not particularly enjoy the peachy ‘aroma’, which is quite strong. Perhaps next time, I will try just a straight white tea.
I usually steep this tea twice: the first steep at 5 minutes, and the second steep at 7 minutes. I find the second steep much more pleasant. Of course, your mileage may vary.
I was very pleased with the aroma of the leaves- a lovely, unmistakable peach. Good start! Once steeped, the (dark!) golden liquor revealed some interesting floral notes. As soon as I began to sip, some of that specialness began to dissipate. To me it tasted very similar to the other Adagio whites, and I was hoping for more distinct peachiness. The peach flavor came as more of an afterthought.
