After the hectic week I have been having and a major case of ‘too much info on the brain overload” I thought this would be the tea to review tonight. This is a chai I have really been enjoying the last couple of months!
I thought it would be too full of spice – but everything works awesomely well together! This is VERY good!
Frankincense & Myrrh…kind of make me a little nervous at first but it ended up being a unique, bold, and flavorful cup! This has interesting spices and a slight smoke! Plus I LOVE the names, containers, and labels Indie Tea has on their offerings…so fun!

Peach Apple Crisp was the very first tea I tried from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company and I must say I am impressed!
DRY this smells like various black teas, peaches, apples, flowers, spices, and a little hibiscusy. It’s FULL of aroma and I like that!Post infusion… this smells mostly of peaches, apples, flowers, and cinnamon. Different than the pre-infusion but still very nice and very aromatic! Another PLUS in my book!
It infuses to a nice medium golden brown color.
The flavor is absolutely delightful! I can taste individually the peach, the apple, the cinnamon, and the flowers…but they all jive well together!
The stereotypical Rooibos taste wasn’t really there as much so I would suggest this blend to ANYONE who thinks Rooibos is NOT for them…this just may change your mind!
The more I sip on this the more I like it! My first cup I had HOT but assume it would be tremendous cold, too! I am going to have to put that to the test very soon!
Simply put…I LOVE THIS blend! I have officially put it in my upper 95+ percentile of teas I LOVE. Stay tuned to SororiTEA Sisters for more tea reviews from The Persimmon Tree!
