A perfect peach! This is a staple on my tea shelf for hot days. Not a fan of it hot. Always make it iced. A bit of sugar, throw in some ice cubes and you’re good to go.
“Nope. That’s really all, just nope. I made it hot this morning, it was horrible. I thought, well since the peach oolong is better chilled, maybe it’s the peach flavoring they use? Maybe...” Read full tasting note

“Coldbrew sipdown (323/305) This is a decent tea. it’s not great, it’s not awful, it’s not a must have, but it’s not something I mind drinking, either. It’s a peachy...” Read full tasting note
“A good little tea. The peach flavor presents nicely to the nose and tongue. This is the best of the Orchard Sampler. It was pleasant enough hot, but cold is where it really shines. Especially since...” Read full tasting note
In the famous poem ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’, T.S. Eliot wrote, ‘do I dare to eat a peach?’ The literary-minded folks at Adagio have taken it upon themselves to provide Mr. Eliot with an answer: no need to eat one. Just steep a cup of the premium Ceylon black tea flavored with sweet peaches. Please, be a peach. Give this tea a try.

Trying a second morning, and this time combined with Adagio’s black “Cream.” Was I going for a Peaches & Cream combination? I suppose, kind of. But I was really not thrilled with my first mug of Peach, and remembered from past experience that Cream pairs particularly well with other blacks, so I decided to give it a go. The result was not exactly “Peaches and Cream,” there was almost a chocolately note to it. But it was a pretty big improvement over the “peach flavored hot water” I remember from my first go-round, so I’m probably going to keep drinking it like this until it’s gone!
As noted, a pleasant black tea with solid peach flavor. I like my fruity teas really fruity, and this delivers, although it’s almost so strong it’s like drinking hot peach juice. Not quite, but almost. :) It definitely needs a bit of sugar, peachy or no, as Adagio black tea can be a bit bitter without some sweetening.
Flavors: Peach, Tea
Nice aroma although the peach smells a little artificial. The peach has the first flavor into my mouth and fills through the whole sip. It’s yummy. It is a juicy flavor although it does have a somewhat artificial flavor. I still like it. Many peach teas are so weak and bleh. I can taste the black tea but it doesn’t overwhelm. This one makes it for me.
Tea & Cards TTB
Oh, I had such high hopes for this tea…in the bag it smells like ripe peaches and deliciousness, but after steeping the black is actually really bitter and overwhelming compared to the peach flavour (which came out tasting fake and chemical-y).
Maybe my tastebuds are broken, but this tea was rather unpleasant and it’ll be going down the drain soon.
When I opened the bag, I couldn’t help but take a couple (okay, okay, maybe more than a couple) whiffs. I couldn’t believe the smell; It was wonderful! And I’m happy to report that the tea did not disappoint when steeped as its taste was equally as wonderful. I’ve had this tea both hot and iced, with and without sugar, and I can’t decide which combination I like most. However, I generally prefer my tea hot and without sweetener, so I would probably vote for this tea enjoyed hot and black if I absolutely had to (we’re talking life and death here).
The first sip tastes of the first bite of the perfect peach- sweet and citrusy with neither being overwhelming. There is nothing artificial smelling nor artificial tasting about this tea. I give it two thumbs-up!
