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.
