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!
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!
