Peaches are from a deciduous tree that is native to China. Cultivation spread throughout the world and today major supplies of peaches come from America, China, Italy and Greece. Peaches and peach trees have long histories of symbolism in Asia; in China, peaches are considered a symbol of long life, in Korea they are considered symbols for happiness, wealth and longevity and in Vietnam peaches herald Spring and symbolize peace and happiness.
Peaches have a delicate, intoxicating aroma and a heavenly taste. The peaches grown later in the season, in August and September, have a sweeter more delicate peach taste. This green tea blend has the underlying taste of a sweet, Chinese green with the refreshing taste of sweet peaches. Summer tastes all in one cup!
Ingredients: Green tea, marigold petals and sweet august peach flavoring.
Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2 minutes.
|This tea makes a fantastic ice tea|
||Flavor is hard to stomach
|I found this to have an initial buttery flavor that transitions into a very heavy dried peach flavor. To me, this was not at all refreshing and after a few sips, I had to dump it out. The flavor was very raw and I felt like it needed some spices to help mellow it out. I do drink all my tea cold brewed but feel this heavy peach would be even worse hot.
I will say Ive enjoyed other Simpson & Vail green teas; however, this one will not be part of my repertoire.|
