Taster’s Review:

I love this time of year – as the summer draws to a close, and the fruits of summer are ripe and ready to eat!  One of my favorite summer fruits is definitely peaches, I love the mild flavor and the juicy, refreshing taste of this stone fruit.

This white tea captures the flavor of the peach so well.  It tastes fresh and fruity, but it isn’t too sweet.  The white tea is a soft vegetative note in the background.  There is also a slight astringency to the tea that I would like to refer to as a crispness here, because the rest of the sip is so smooth and almost nectar-like, the crisp note from the astringency gives the cup a very well-rounded taste and texture.

In addition to the white tea (it looks like a Bai Mu Dan to me) and peach flavor, there are also small bits of dried mango and safflower blossoms in the blend.  These do not add an immense amount of flavor, but, they do add a hints of flavor.  There is a slight taste of sweet mango-ness, as well as a sharpness from the safflower.  What is nice about this mango note is that it can be tasted, even in the slightest.  I think that if the blend were made with a stronger flavored tea (like a black base) the mango might not be noticeable.  But because the white tea and peach flavors are so delicate, the whisper of mango manages to make its presence known.

I like this one hot or iced – but it being so hot outside, I think I prefer this one iced!  It is light, cooling refreshment – just what I need on a day like this!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn’t drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn’t cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn’t cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
