This was sweet and refreshing.
I added a little sugar at the end, but I don’t think that it needed it.
This will make a nice spring/summer treat

Part of my birthday present from my mom/little sister. I didn’t ask for this one, but I was still pretty happy to receive it because it’s yet another blend for me to try cold brewing! It smells pretty good; like fuzzy peach candy without the sour sugar (so just the chewy peach part) and apples. It also has the same “stony”/pitt and overripe smell/quality that I thought RiverTea’s Sweet Helen pear blend had. How interesting.
The leaf cold brewed for nine hours, and I can’t figure out whether or not it needed more of less time sitting, because as far as the taste goes it’s a little… funky?
Like, there’s a sweetness to the tea and I am reminded of overripe peaches and faintly of pineapple – but there’s also this background flavoured that reminds me of unsweetened apple juice or applesauce, and I think that’s the flavour that really lingers the longest. It’s not all that lovely. Maybe it’s the chamomile doing weird things, or maybe it’s just my general fickleness towards peach.
My theory, anyway, is that less steep time would maybe make this softer with less of the weird underlying taste or that more steep time would make this juicier and cover up the ickyness. The fear? That either way the ick will be more noticeable (either because there’s less peach in the case of less steep time or because it’s gotten stronger from more steep time). There’s room for experimentation, though! And – I can always still try this one hot too!
