Leaf Type: Honeybush & Rooibos
Where to Buy: Trail Lodge Tea
This is a Trail Lodge Exclusive tea. The inspiration for this herbal tisane came from eating a peach melba sundae, and just like the desert, this tisane is a refreshing treat. The sweet taste of fresh peaches combines perfectly with the tartness of raspberries. It’s as if summer has been captured in a cup of tea. This tisane is great hot or iced. Ingredients: organic rooibos, organic honeybush, organic apple bits, organic raspberry bits, organic marigold, and natural flavor.

This Peach Melba Tisane from Trail Lodge Tea is yummy! I can’t say that I’ve ever had a “Peach Melba Sundae” but, I’m really enjoying this tisane. The flavor of peach is sweet and contrasts really nicely with the tart and tangy flavor of raspberry.
The combination of organic rooibos and honeybush provides a really pleasant background for the flavors of peach and raspberry … a background that is a little bit nutty and sweet with a touch of honey. It is really smooth and that smoothness makes the delivery of the flavors more sweet than tart, and I like that. It really makes this taste like a dessert in a teacup.
I taste hints of creaminess too, and this also helps with the aforementioned smooth delivery. The tart tingles on the tongue in the aftertaste … just like I’d experience if I ate a fresh, ripe raspberry. I really like this tisane a lot – I love that it’s organic, I love the freshness of the flavor (It tastes like fresh peaches and raspberries!) and I love the creamy, nutty taste that weaves its way through the sip. And because this is naturally caffeine-free, it’s a delicious dessert tea that I can enjoy any time of day without worry.
Having tried a few different teas form Trail Lodge Tea, I can say that I am really impressed with this company. Their teas and tisanes have all been very enjoyable so far, and since they sent me several new ones recently, I’ll be sharing some more from them with you very soon!
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!
