I used to think that I didn’t like black teas until I tried a peach flavored tea. Then, I fell in love with black teas, especially ones that are sweet and fruity. So, obviously when I saw this American Dream: Peaches & Cream tea, I thought that it would quickly become one of my favorites. I was right.
Dry, the leaf smells vaguely sweet. It’s nothing to write home about. Brewed up, however, it smelled just like a fresh peach. Sometimes flavored teas smell a lot better or stronger than they taste, but I’m happy to say that with this tea, that isn’t the case. The first note I got when I sipped on this tea was juicy peach, followed by a mellow cream flavor.
The thing that I appreciated most about this tea is that the peach didn’t get lost in the sweetness of cream. The peach flavor is still the star of this tea, with a touch of cream flavor to balance it out and make it really smooth.
This was my first time trying Impeach Teas and I know I will have to pick up more. This blend is very well balanced and an extremely enjoyable cuppa.

In the past year, there has been a trend for companies to be founded and based on socially responsible ideas. With the world being so socially active and connected anymore, that makes sense. What I’m loving are the tea companies that are starting to join in on this movement. Impeach Tea is one of those companies.
At their core, Impeach Tea provides affordable flavored teas with a charitable mission-to give 10% back to organizations in need of support. I wish they had a bit more information about which charities they have recently donated to or even a bit more about when they were founded but they do provide quite a bit more about their what they stand for.
Impeach Tea offers three different black base peach flavored teas- Honey Ginger Southern Peach Tea, American Dream-Peaches ‘N Cream, and Presidential Peach Black Tea. The one that instantly grabbed my attention was their Honey Ginger Southern Peach Tea.
I thought this would be a great flavored tea to try both hot and cold. The dry leaves just call for a gorgeous cold brew to really get those bright honeyed peach flavors to pop.
Allowed to steep for 4 minutes with fresh boiled water, this tea yields a robust black tea base with a more gentle honeyed peach touch and a ginger aftertaste. Really delightful. This is one of those teas that I continuously found myself grabbing for an afternoon cuppa. I did find that this is one of those flavored teas where the black tea can really start to overwhelm the cuppa if allowed to cool too much. Overall, really enjoyed.
I did try to cold brew this tea, but the flavors that I was hoping would really pop out and sing, decided to keep hiding. I thought for sure I would be greeted with a rich honeyed peach ginger tea with hints of a black tea base but those honeyed peach ginger flavors decided to stay gentle. Still delicious, just wasn’t what I had hoped for.
Regardless, I’m still loving the tea and have enjoyed cup after cup. I wish they offered green tea varieties or possibly even a honeybush. But that is just me. I’m more of a green tea girl.

Honey. Ginger. Peach. United they stand, divided they fall. A bit dramatic, but we think you’ll agree. Enjoy.
