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.
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!
