5 Tasting Notes
First, this tea was visually appealing and packaged as part of a sampler box (great gift). I love the Tea Forté silk pyramid bags and although the string is a bit short, find that they steep nicely in a large teapot.
The Ginger Pear was mild on the ginger and just right on the pear. This combination can be spicy and overpowering, but I’d say they got it just right. It is a medium amber brew that was perfect for breakfast, and then I re-infused it throughout the day for lunch and afternoon tea.
This tea helps me imagine what it must feel like to be a light and airy summer dress hung out on a clothesline in the back rose garden. Fresh and bright.
This tea is a good party trick. When I whip out my iced tea pitcher filled with this Peach Apricot iced tea, it draws stares. And then, after tasting, smiles. Real iced tea is so nice to serve at a summer party.
It steeps to a beautiful golden red color and it smells like a peach orchard. A few orange or lemon slices help fancy it up, but the flavor is all there already. It is not too strong on the apricot side of things, which is nice. Because who wants to drink apricot iced tea?
As a warm tea the aromas outweigh the flavoring, until you add sugar or honey.
