Have you ever tasted a Georgia peach? Super sweet, tangy and juicy, the peach is Georgia’s best-loved export and one of summer’s tastiest treats. The natural sweetness of the fruit makes it a perfect addition to our South African Rooibos. And why is that? Because the inherent slight sweetness of Rooibos (Latin: Aspalathus linearis) is perfectly complimented by that of the peach and creates an herbal tea that is packed with subtle nuances and a complex flavor profile.

Like all herbal teas, this Rooibos based blend is caffeine free. But did you know that Rooibos has many other health benefits as well? South African studies conducted over the years have determined that Rooibos tea is high in iron, potassium, zinc, manganese and sodium. As such, any Rooibos based drink is not only great for sipping morning, noon, and night, but for the actively health conscious out there, it also makes a fantastic post workout refresher. But even if your most strenuous exercise is quietly sitting in a low-slung porch swing in the midday sun, the benefits of drinking this tea are still positive.

Brew yourself a pot, enjoy it hot, and savor the aromas of fresh peaches. It also goes without saying that this tea, poured over ice is simply fantastic. Try some today – as you recline, listening to the ice cubes tinkling in your glass, the condensation cooling your hand, we’re sure you’ll find the peachy flavor in your cup to be at once soothing, relaxing, and revitalizing.

Here’s another one of four Metropolitan Tea Company teas I purchased from Tweed & Hickory. I won’t be reviewing the final one because it’s just Monk’s Blend. Anyway…

I’ve been looking for a good peach tea for some time now. MTC Peach and Apricot black tea was pretty good but I am not a fan of the tea base, and DAVIDsTEA Southern Belle was a disaster. So I decided to purchase this Georgia Peach from MTC because it uses rooibos as a tea base.

Sniffing inside the bag, I’m reminded of the way too powerful peach smell from Southern Belle. The brewed rooibos liquor smells like peach, jolly ranchers, mint, and koolaid (seriously).

I was a bit hesitant to drink this stuff, because I had such high hopes for it. But my fears subsided when I took my first sip. It tastes FANTASTIC! It’s just the peach tea I’ve been looking for! This totally tastes like a peach should, plus it has some other nice flavours associated with red rooibos like mint.

I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. Rooibos has always been a “tea” I’ve liked but never fell in love with. But it works so well here with the peach flavour. The description suggests it’s good iced so I’ll have to try that sometime too.

470ml glass mug, 3 tsp (I use 1 and 1/2 tsp of rooibos per cup), 1 steep

I didn’t know that this one was called Georgia Peach. I bought this one, and where I bought it from must have dropped the first part of the name when they made up the label. I just thought it was called Sweet Peach Rooibos, but after looking over this, I’m pretty sure this is the one that I have.
It is a lovely peach flavoured tea. I love the rooibos base with it. It is a very good pairing. I like the fact that it is an almost juicy peach flavour that comes through.
I must agree with the other reviewer here. The DavidsTea Southern Belle (Peach tea) wasn’t good to me. I couldn’t drink it. My husband seems to not mind it too much, but I can’t drink it. So I find that this tea is a very nice one to have on hand. It is just about perfect for flavouring of a peach tea.
I’m just finishing up my stash of it, so I’ll have to get more again at some point.

I purchased this tea after smelling a cup my friend had brewed. It smelled absolutely delicious. However, I was disappointed in the taste. I found it to be very mild, if you steeped it for longer, or used more tea, the rooibos flavour just took over.
