Thanks to Barbara for this sample!
Brewed, this tea smells like the filling of a warm peach pie. The smell is similar to the taste with a little more of a floral aspect to it. A little bit of sugar really rounds out the taste and takes it from floral to full juicy peach! The aftertaste is spot on! The green tea base is hidden in the back and hard to pick out over the peach. I really want to try this tea with cream, but I’m hesitant to disrupt something that is already so good. And my intuition was right! Cream really didn’t add to it and actually takes away from the juiciness of this tea. Second steep was pretty good too! I’m normally not a fan of peach teas (maybe because of association with cheap blacks with overdone synthetic peach), but I’m finding this one quite delicious.
Just read the description and saw it had melon in it too! I’ll have to see if I can pick out the flavor in my next cup! These The O Dor teas have interesting flavor combinations that I’m not picking out before I read what is in them. I’m not as good at identifying tastes as I thought, but it’s fun to try!
