Taster’s Review:

It took me a few sips to come around with this Peach Blossom tea from Fusion Teas.  That is to say, my first sip … I wasn’t all that excited about this tea.  My reaction was kind of “meh … whatever.” The second and third sip … there was a little improvement to my attitude, but, not enough for me to say that I really enjoyed it.  But I was still sipping on it, so that is a good sign.

By the time I reached mid-cup, I realized that I was actually … liking it!  And now that the cup is nearly finished, I can say that this is a really interesting cuppa – and definitely worth exploring.

I think that my initial reaction was due to the fact that I was expecting more of an Oolong presence in this tea … and I found myself “feeling” the Oolong more than I was tasting it.  That is to say, I could taste that smooth, rich texture that I experience with an Oolong, but nothing that really tasted overtly OOLONG to me.  Then again, I wasn’t tasting anything overtly black tea or green tea to me … what I was tasting was something of a cross of the three … or dare I say it?  A FUSION of the three types of tea.

Which I guess is exactly the point of this blend.  It is indeed a fusion of teas … it possesses qualities of all three types of tea in the blend … and none of the three takes over.  I taste the lovely jasmine notes which really make this blend shine … and the peach is a soft and delectable fruit note.  I love the way these two notes – the fruit and the flower – play off one another.  It’s really quite pleasant.

Overall, I really enjoyed this cup … even if the first few sips were not quite as memorable as the last few!  And this is really tasty as an iced tea – that’s where it really SHINES!
