I had this iced at an Aroma a few weeks ago. If you look at my profile, you’ll see that the perfect peach iced tea is something I’m still hunting down, so when I saw this on the menu, I thought I’d give it a try.
The first half of the tea was incredibly disappointing. There was barely a hint of a peach flavour. But it exploded deliciously out of the bottom of the cup. I’m not sure if this was a result of the brewing technique or the tea, but maybe next time I will try to shake or stir it up before drinking.
Even though this tea was a delicious classic peach tea, I won’t be buying it. I already have a classic black peach tea for iced tea and I really want to find a caffeine-free option for everyday drinking. That being said, I will most likely purchase this by the cup at my visits to Aroma.
ETA: Pluck Tea is also a local Toronto company which is also worth noting as they try to use local ingredients in their teas. They have a few blends available at Indigo but not the peach.
Flavors: Fruity, Peach
My August box from Postal Teas (Postal teas now refers to their boxes as “editions” rather than by the month, so this was edition 6) included teas from Pluck, a new-to-me company so I was very happy. I love it when I find teas and tea companies that are new to me!
I really like Postal Teas. Their shipping process could probably use some work and I will admit that most other subscription/tea of the month type packages that I’ve received are more effective at getting the teas to me in a more timely fashion (I can count on about when the teas will arrive). But I do like that Postal Teas exposes me to small companies that I might not have discovered without them. And I also LOVE that Postal Teas includes in my boxes a handwritten note that is personalized to me. In edition 6 (the box that this tea came in), I got a handwritten note that said that they appreciate the feedback (ie: the blog write up). I like that. I like that they take the time to write me something personal.
And I really enjoyed this tea. When I opened the pouch, I could smell the peach. It was very fragrant. As I pointed out on my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/09/just-peachy-black-tea-from-pluck-tea/ it reminded me of when we stopped at our local produce stand and bought a crate of peaches … the smell permeated the kitchen and it smelled like fresh peaches for days. Loved that. That is the smell that escaped the pouch when I opened it.
The black tea is the strongest flavor of the cup (which is the way it should be, it should taste like tea). The peach starts out very subtly and develops as I sip. This tastes like true peach, not some artificial flavor.
A really tasty peach tea.
