1 Tasting Note
This is my second tasting of this tea; I will admit that the first tasting was not as good as I was hoping for. But thankfully I do believe in giving teas a second chance, and I am glad I did. Although the directions say to steep for approximately 4-7 minutes, I found that for my first time trying this tea it was fairly weak, so I decided to up the steep time to closer to 10 minutes. The colour is a pale yellowish-orange, and although transparent, there is a bit of sediment floating around (most likely small pieces of fruit).
There is a very creamy aroma – reminds me of French vanilla ice cream and orange creamsicles… maybe in this case peachsicles? Either way this tea smells amazing!
The initial taste isn’t much; however, I am able to taste the creaminess in the back of my mouth. After the second sip I am able to make out more of the vanilla notes, but not as much peach.
There is a very soft and creamy mouthfeel, leaving my mouth watering and wanting another sip. The creaminess intensifies as the tea cools.
The aftertaste is when I notice most of the flavour of the peach come out. It is very juicy, fruity, with a slight mouthwatering tang.
This tea isn’t very strong, so for those of you who like your tea on the stronger side I would recommend steeping the tea for a few minutes longer then the recommended 4-7minutes. I found that this also helped develop the peach aftertaste. Overall this tea is a lovely fruity tea, perfect for the approaching spring/summer weather. I can see myself drinking this iced and sitting outside during the early evening as the sun goes sown (when the weather gets a bit warmer of course).
