Taster’s Review:

The first time I steeped this, I steeped it the way I would normally steep a flavored green tea in my Breville One-Touch:  170°F, 2 minutes.  I found that this produced a rather weak tasting cup, so, this time around, I increased the temperature slightly (to 180°F) and the steep time (to 2 1/2 minutes).  Perfection!

One look at the name of this tea and one might think that there is a little too much going on.  But, these flavors all play together very nicely.  I like that the ginger here is zesty without producing an overwhelming amount of heat.  Instead of getting too aggressive, it enhances the other flavors.  The tangy notes of the orange really come through nicely, and the peach is sweet and juicy tasting. The green tea is not left behind with all these other flavors, either.  It is sweet and slightly grassy, but not to the point of bitterness.

And what is so pleasant about this cup is that even though there are four main ingredients in this blend, Red Leaf Tea took the subtle approach with each one, creating a very smooth, palatable flavor.  It’s gentle and calming, instilling a sort of inner peace as I drink it.  Very nice, indeed.

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!
