Just wrote this one up for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, so I won’t repeat, but it’s nicely done. I’m usually a little leery of teas marketed largely on the basis of packaging—in this case a Scripture verse on each tag—but this is tasty and would be a nice and thoughtful gift tea, especially for a newbie or non-teaophile.

The box provides steeping instructions for sun tea, which I have none of (warm sunshine) to try. But for now, it’s fruity, naturally sweet, and a little bit of spring in a cup. Spring is coming, yes?

Maybe I am not smart enough to navigate the site, but I couldn’t find this review.

There’s usually some lag time between the time reviewers send one in and when it posts. Out of courtesy, I don’t cut and paste anything duplicate. (Thanks for looking, though!)

I must admit that I love the smell of peach teas. This peach white tea is no exception. After removing the teabag from the plastic packaging, the whiff of peaches hits my nose, and I inhale deeply, enjoying the, thankfully, not-perfume-y aroma of fresh peaches.

Heating some water to the proper temperature for white tea (not near boiling, as the website for this tea suggests, I take a look at the packaging. Relatively simple with little flair or flash, each teabag tag has a Bible verse on it. While this may work well for serving tea at church luncheons, my past experience has suggested that such teas are more novel than actual quality. Hopefully, this one will not be the same!

Four minutes of steeping, as per the website’s suggestion, provides an aromatic cup that smells much less strongly of peaches than did the dry, bagged leaves. The smell of white tea blends with the smell of peaches and actually complements it quite nicely. I found the taste of this tea interesting. It is quite crisp and clean, again hinting that the peach flavor is not overwhelming the flavor of the white tea. That in and of itself definitely gets major bonus points from me.

This is one peach white tea that I will certainly be recommending, especially to people who still enjoy using teabags. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would give it an 83/100.

Funny coincidence: My 666th tea tasting note on Steepster was for a teabag with a Bible verse on it…

It’s the good Southern Baptist in me … when I hit 666, I immediately banged out #667 so I wouldn’t stick there!

(And I really liked this one, too. I took the rest of the box to my mom’s, but when I go to the farm, I may snitch it back to try it iced.)

I am planning on number 667 for this afternoon!

Since I made Shepherd’s Pie I thought some Shepherd’s Tea would be a fitting pairing!

This is really good! The white tea steeps to a nice light orange color, which always amazes because in my head white tea=almost clear tea. The peach flavor is natural tasting and the bit of licorice root is really, really nice.

Thank you, GMATHIS, for this surprise tea that came to my house day before yesterday! :)
