PRODUCT REVIEW: Giant Peach Green Tea & Peach Flavored Juice Blend from Tazo

giantpeachProduct Information:

Peach is such a happy-go-lucky fruit, brimming with golden possibilites.  When it’s mixed with ripe apple and the easy smoothness of green tea,  you can’t help but run barefoot through the tall grass.

Taster’s Review:

While shopping this evening at my local grocery store, I picked up a bottle of this ready-to-drink Giant Peach Green Tea & Peach flavored Juice Blend from Tazo.  I don’t usually even bother to stop and browse through the supermarket’s selection of RTD teas, because it’s been my experience that these convenient beverages are more sweetener than they are tea.  And I like tea.  I like the taste of it.  I find myself put off a bit when the flavor is overpowered by sweetener.  It’s not just disappointing … it’s almost an insult!

But something about this particular bottle of tea caught my eye.  I think it was because there wasn’t any sediment that had built up at the bottom of the bottle.  This was clear.  I don’t know if that really means anything to any of you.  I just don’t like it when I buy a bottle of anything and all the flavor seems to be settled at the bottom of it, and I have to shake to distribute  this “sediment.”

As far as a Peach flavored Juice blend, this is … well, this is sweet.  It tastes like peach.  It’s sweet.  I taste notes of apple.  It is very fruity.  It’s sweet.  Did I mention that already?  Well, that’s because it’s really sweet.  Too sweet for my liking, but, I guess I can see how some might find this appealing.  Someone who likes sweet drinks might really like this.

As far as a “tea” goes … this isn’t doing anything for me.  I taste next to no tea flavor in this.  And that’s really a very generous statement to suggest that there might be some tea flavor to this.  If I slurp it as I sip, I can pick up hints of green tea-ish taste.  But, it’s very faint.  It’s barely there.  It’s so barely there that it’s not even worth trying to taste it.

This was not a tea drink that was crafted for someone who actually likes tea.  Perhaps I should say that this was not a tea drink that was crafted for me.  You might like it.  If you’re looking for a peach juice cocktail type drink, I think you’ll enjoy this.  If you’re looking for a tea drink with peach notes, I believe that this is going to leave you feeling at least a little disappointed.

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
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!
