Peach and Apricot Green Tea from Long Dog Tea Co. . . .

Peaches and apricots just scream all things happy and bright so when I was having a particularly low day the other day, this was the tea I grabbed for. And I’m so happy I did.

Peach and Apricot Green Tea is a lovely tea blend of gunpowder green tea, peach, and apricot flavorings.  First of all, this tea had me at gunpowder but with the promise of peaches and apricots, this tea was giving me those tea tingles. You know. Those tingles you get when you try a tea for the first time and you know its going to be love.

Brewed up with green tea parameters and allowed to steep for 3 minutes and cooled for another two.  Fresh fruity notes were already in the air and I couldn’t wait to see if what I was smelling would translate into the same flavor.

First sip in, you are greeted with this gorgeous lovely peach and subtle apricot flavor followed up with a sturdy familiar gunpowder green tea flavor.  Not so much the smoky tones of gunpowder tea but more or less just a there is a green tea flavor here and not in the vegetal way.  Quite simply, this tea is delicious and provides a perfect contrast without being overpower by fruity notes or the natural green tea flavor. I’m quite in love and enamored over this tea.

With the little sample I had, I was able to pull out a few infusions and was delighted.

This tea would be a perfect companion for any season and I can’t wait to gobble up more so I can enjoy a lighter tea with the onset of fall chais coming our way.  If you aren’t familiar with Long Dog Tea Co., check them out! Their logo alone makes me smile.

Taster’s Review:

Beleave Teas isn’t a tea company I hear a lot about but I have to say I don’t know why. They provide a great variety of teas that are fresh and so far pretty tasty.

This particular tea blend is a lovely blend of dried apricots and a gorgeous helping of green tea. Mixed together you would think this would be a soothing loving tea  . . and you are correct!

Brewed up per the package instructions, this tea gives you a lovely subtle blend of stone fruit love with a hint of a vegetal slightly grassy green tea base. Kind of a sweet yet subtly sweet blend that gives you a moment to reflect and settle. This tea isn’t one that will blow you away by leaps and bounds but for a gentle tea it fits the perfectly.

This is one of those teas you keep on hand and drink when you need a bit of a soothing calming loving tea to help you thru your day and into your evening. The flavors are really lovely and creates a setting that makes you fall in love with it. The flavors may not burst out of the tea cup, but the deliver spot on flavor, which sometimes is exactly what you are looking for.

If you haven’t taken a moment to check out Beleave Teas, its another awesome tea company to check out next time you are in the market to pick up some new tea!
