In my recent July tea box from Zen TeaBar, there were four main teas to enjoy. One particular blend caught my eye instantly, Peach Black Blend, a blend from Zen TeaBar themselves. So far from what I’ve experienced from Zen TeaBar, they cultivate a tea box for you, allowing you the chance to check out teas from companies you may have never heard of or just haven’t taken the plunge and made an order from.
Peach Black Blend is a brilliant Sri Lankan black tea, dried fruit like papaya and peach, blackberry leaves, and calendula petals. When I first opened up the pouch of tea, rich peachy notes instantly filled the air. Team that up with a malty black tea and papaya, you have yourself a wonderful treat.
Brewed with fresh boiled water and allowed to steep for a 3 minutes and allowed to cool for about 5, this tea is a peach lover’s dream. First sip in and you are greeted with this sweet definite peach flavor with a wonderfully seductive malty black tea background. Really nice and a great balance between the added in flavor components and the black tea itself.
As an iced tea, I greedily gobbled this tea down. Still those same black tea malty notes but the peach notes are amped up and really are the driving force yielding such a sweet flavor that makes you want to enjoy the last few days of summer we have in style.
I’m super excited about this tea blend and am sad to say, this pouch didn’t last very long. But I am quite excited to see if my September box will also feature a Zen TeaBar blend. . .I sure hope so!
Here’s the scoop!
