Great hot or cold, this Assam FOP based tea is thirst quenching and satisfying. Rich Single Estate, Fair Trade, organic tea leaves from India along with organic domestic peach pieces (dried in slices then cut by hand by us) and USDA organic peach flavor.

For my next pitcher of iced tea, I decided I’d try this tea, and while I was making it for the iced tea pitcher, I decided to pour myself a cup of it so that I could try it hot.
This is really quite tasty. The peach flavor starts out soft but after a couple of sips it begins to really pop. It is sweet and luscious! And I love the combination of Assam tea and peach. I’m used to peach flavored black teas with a Ceylon base, and I really like that Zhi chose an Assam base for this tea – because the malty tones of the Assam seem to pair perfectly with the sweet, juicy taste of the stone fruit.
It’s a delicious cup of hot tea, but it’s amazing iced. The Assam becomes very smooth, and supports the peach tones in a very pleasing way. Sweet and fruity, but, what I like is that the tea is bold enough to taste like a TEA and not a fruity soft drink. Very nice!
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!
