Taster’s Review:

When I opened the sampler packet of this Sweet Peach White Tea Blend from Simple Loose Leaf – which was part of this month’s Selection Club box! – I was blown away by the aroma!  Wow!  This tea packs one powerful peach punch.  The fragrance is like I had just cut into a fresh, tree-ripened peach.  Mmm!

After being greeted by such a delicious scent, I could hardly wait to taste the tea.  And the flavor of this tea is outstanding.  It tastes strongly of peach, but, the sweet, juicy peach notes do not overwhelm the delicate Shou Mei white tea.

The peach has an authentic taste.  I’m not tasting an “artificial” peach note or a chemical-y taste that I can sometimes get with a flavored tea.  This tastes like PEACHES.  Drinking this hot, it reminds me of the warm filling of a peach cobbler.  Allow it to cool, and you’re treated to a wonderful iced tea that tastes so good, you can almost feel the juice of the peach running down your arm.

As I mentioned before, the white tea is not overpowered in this cup.  It is a light, sweet taste that offers whispers of earthy notes and hints of hay-like flavors, as well as a sweet, dewy flavor.  The combination of peach and white tea is a real winner here … and this tea from Simple Loose Leaf is a definite WIN!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
