Well, bit of a cupboard increase again because I just got a big package from White2Tea and the Discovery Tea Box arrived today also; I’ll did into both of those in a little bit, though…
This one is a VariaTEA share, and one that I don’t remember coming out? I must have just missed this one when it was tea of the week because it’s something that would have interested me – if I had noticed it, anyway. I’m finishing my sample off iced because iced peach black tea sounds DIVINE on a hot day like this. It’s interesting; not as sweet as I’d expect from a peach tea, and not as sweet as it smelled either. Neither of those are bad, just surprising. The black tea base is REALLY full bodied and brisk though, much stronger than the peach in the blend. It’s malty and has a bit of citrus pith/cocoa to it as well.
The overall profile, strong black tea and undertones of natural peach, make me think of Southern style iced tea but without any sweetener of any kind. I’m pleasantly surprised by this even if it’s not at all what I expected out of it.
