This Organic Georgetown Peach Black Tea from The Steeping Room is a very subtly flavored peach tea. I can still taste the peach, but the black tea is definitely the star of this show. And … that’s just the way it should be, right? I’m drinking tea, after all, not peach juice. I want to taste the tea!
The black tea is a brisk tea. It is a bit more astringent than I would like, and I think that is what is really keeping me from getting overly excited about this tea. It tastes alright, but, it’s not the best peach tea I’ve ever encountered. It is a pleasant tasting tea, though.
The peach flavor is delicate and sweet. I find that as the tea cools, the peach notes develop a little bit and the astringency seems to soften it’s edge somewhat, making this a nice choice for iced tea and that time of year is here again!
If this tea weren’t so astringent when served hot, I’d be a lot more happy with it. As it is, it does make a fine choice for iced tea, because as I said, the astringency becomes milder as the tea cools. There are some things that I really like about it: I like that it’s organic, and I like that the flavor of the black tea base is the focus of this tea.
Overall, this is alright.
