Taster’s Review:

It’s a cold winter’s day here in the Pacific Northwest, but the tea that’s in my teacup right now reminds me of warm summer days when I can find fresh, ripe, juicy peaches at my local produce market.  This Madame Butterfly Flavored Green Tea from Gurman’s Tea & Coffee tastes (and smells!) just like summer!

What I like best about this particular peach flavored green tea is that it’s not overdone.  Occasionally, I’ll come across a peach flavored tea that has been flavored with a heavy hand and the peach notes completely overwhelm the flavor of the green tea, and what’s worse, because the peach is such a prominent flavor, it often tastes artificial and chemical-y.  But that isn’t the case with this tea from Gurman’s.

Here, the flavor is just right.  It tastes delicately of peaches, and the green tea is the prominent flavor in the cup.  I taste the lush flavor of the Sencha green tea:  sweet with contrasting savory tones, and a backdrop of buttered vegetable flavor.  Then the flavor of sweet peaches comes through, and the peach notes taste true to the fruit.  Sweet and juicy, tasting as though someone pureed a fresh, ripe peach and strained the juices into my teacup.

A really wonderful peach flavored green tea, this Madame Butterfly from Gurman’s.  It’s a nice way to celebrate the splendor of summer even when the weather is chilly outside.

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!
