I’m so caffeinated now the selection process for this one went something like…
green peach, huh?
are there even green peaches?
or is it because the tea is green?
what a pretty fruit
but peach like
…and then imagine that really pinball-staccato and jittery.
I have a peach obsession. If it says peach, I’m gonna peach. So I peached. I am absolutely not disappointed. There are some too-good-to-be-true natural peaches out there, such as Lupicia’s Momo, but then there are also slightly less natural (it sounds better than ‘more artificial’) peach versions, such as this one, that are really enjoyable. (Keep in mind, though, that I’m someone who will shamelessly hog a bag of Haribo peach candies. Hi, E100, hi, E120, Hi Artificial Flavouring! Is anyone else coming? Oooh, Sugar.)
Brewed, this one has that slight metallic hint to it that I’m so used to finding in teas from A.C. Perchs now that I almost exclusively associate it with their greens and whites. It’s also somewhat flat – not flat as in stale, but just not overly intricate, flavour wise.
I’d really like to cold-brew this one, so I think this gets to stay here in Villa Borghese with me.
Thanks for sharing, KittyLovesTea! I am now one step closer to trying all the peach teas in the world.
