One of my favorites from Stash. They seem to do flavored black tea very well, in my humble opinion. Very “fresh”, non artificial peach flavoring. Wins hands down over Ginger Peach by Republic of Tea.
I was making space in my cupboard for my Adagio tins on the way (only 2, but still want them front and center) when I found a few bags of Stash Peach Black left. I needed a pick me up this morning so I made a cup to enjoy while getting ready for work. It’s not bad for a bagged tea. Gave a rich dark caramel liquor after steeping for 2 minutes and smells strongly of peach. It does have a bit of a floral aftertaste. Might try the last few bags iced, as I believe this is one my husband would like (as it tastes like lipton iced). I can’t get him into other teas yet.
The peach flavor is quite good. Its not overwhelming or missing or bitter. The tea itself seems very light. No malty, chocolaty or much of any other flavor that I can detect. Since I put one teabag in our teapot (which I’m sure is more than 8oz) I may try more tea next time.
This is one of my husband’s favorite teas but I hadn’t tried it until now. I like it! The tea bag smells very peachy and the tea smells peachy as well. It definitely tastes best to me when sweetened and with milk added. The sugar brings out the peach flavor more, I think maybe because peaches are naturally sweet so peach flavor without sweetness is kind of incongruous. The milk smooths the flavor and texture. Also, I’d like to note that although I love the fruit, artificial peach flavor is not something I enjoy, but I liked the peach in this tea. Maybe that means most of the flavor is real vs artificial?
All in all, I would drink this plain, but it’s definitely nicer with milk and a little sugar. This tea isn’t super remarkable or memorable to me, but pleasant for sure.
I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a huge fan of fruity black blends. And because the Peach Black is made up of heartier black tea than I usually care for, I decided to steep it (the tea bag version) for only three minutes.
This tea has a lovely sweetness to it. I would agree with the descriptor “juicy”. The peach flavor is light and pleasant. However, I can’t get over the taste of this black tea; it’s far too astringent for me. I like my blacks smooth and unfortunately, the Assam in this blend sticks out like a sore thumb. To be honest, I don’t think its maltiness pairs well with the peach flavor.
