Temple of Heaven Green tea with Peach and Apricot flavors. Delicious.

The aroma of the dry leaf is strong and distinctively peach and apricot. So distinctive that I could smell it the moment I opened the pouch! It smells so mouthwateringly delicious, so true to the fruit essences, so much like summer! YUM!
The flavor is also strong, but I like that there is a pleasing balance between the flavor of the Temple of Heaven green tea and the stone fruit. The green tea tastes fresh and a little creamy. There are toasty nut notes and whispers of smoke in the distance. Vegetative but not overwhelmingly so.
And the fruit notes do not taste chemical or artificial. It tastes as though fresh, tree ripened peaches and apricots had been liquified and mixed in a 1:1 ratio with green tea! So sweet and luscious.
This tea is absolutely lovely. It tastes good hot, but I prefer it iced – it is a delicious representation of two of my favorite summertime fruits. This one is really good … certainly one of the best flavored green teas I’ve tried lately. If you’re a fan of peach or apricot (or both!) … you’ve got to try this!
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!
