Passion Peach Tea from Teavery surely SMELLED peachy and even TASTED peachy…but…I was surprised to learn that this loose leaf contained orange peel AND elderberry which I think were both nice additions. I think I can taste the orange peel as much as the peach flavor. It gives it a bitterness to even out the sweetness. There is a bit of rooibos in this mix, too, which helps with the sweetness as well. Oh yes! This has Passion Fruit flavor in there, too! This mixture of ingredients seemed to be well thought out and wasn’t just your run-of-the-mill peach flavored tea and for that I’m grateful!
As I continue to sip this Passion Peach Tea from Teavery I find myself really concentrating on the black tea base (that is blended with the rooibos, that is). With everything going on in this flavored tea I can still taste the black tea, thankfully. The black tea is strong and has a deep crusty taste to it. There are a lot of flavors in this cup and it’s almost like a wheel of flavor spinning around and around in your mouth. I’m really LOVING the layers of flavor in Passion Peach Tea from Teavery.
Here’s the scoop!

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!
