i wanted to like this one and i thought i would, since it’s green tea with peach! i love fresh peaches & peach flavoring, and since i have a bunch of straight greens on hand i thought i’d try a fruity one. plus, i also had a great experience with Tazo’s other fruity green offering, Decaf Lotus Blossom.
this one is a letdown.
it has a somewhat ashy green tea base (not sure which one is used) that got bitter very quickly! in fact, it is so bitter now after having cooled, i’m not sure i can finish my cup. i’m not entirely sure if i’d write this one off as undrinkable as i think i should adjust my steeping parameters from 3 to 2 minutes and let it infuse in considerably cooler water next time, just to be sure.
for me, the only redeeming quality about this tea is that the aroma is definitely better when cooled & the peach opens up more, but it is soo bitter! ack.
