I picked this tea up when I was in Kelowna a few weeks ago and looking for a good decaf fruit blend to turn into iced tea. Unfortunately most fruit teas have a ton of hibiscus in them as a cheap way to replicate raspberry/pomegranate/cherry/random-tart-fruit-of-choice and while I’ll admit it’s more agreeable iced, I’d prefer to do without it altogether. So I was pretty pleased to score this tea.
Like I usually do with a new tea even if it’s destined to become iced tea I’ll try it hot first. The strongest flavour in this blend is the peach but I can also easily pick out apple and apricot as well. The honeybush mixed with the fruit gives the tea its own natural sweetness, and the decaf black tea gives this blend some substance but its subtle enough not to take over. I can already tell this is going to be a hit iced.
