I love peach candy and peach tea, both of which are very different kinds of peaches. I’ve tried a lot of summery peach blends, and they are usually cloyingly sweet, or more like peach rings than the fruit. This blend is the truest peach tea I’ve ever tasted.
This tea is sweet, but not like candy, it’s just like genuine peaches! The blend brews up a light amber, peach color, not too pink or dark. When brewed, the fruit flavor is gentle, but forward, and you can see peach pieces in the leaves. The rest of the ingredients are simple and herbal enough, they they really let the peach shine (no rooibos overshadowing the peach in this blend). Strawberry leaf and citrus peel help make the blend naturally sweet and bright.
Probably best as an iced summer blend, this could have some great comforting potential as a hot tea. Mix it with a little chai and you’ll have a peach cobbler tea in no time. Overall this was a lovely taste-test. The tea is caffeine free, sugar free, and deliciously peachy.
