AMERICAN DREAM : PEACHES & CREAM from Impeach Tea. . . .

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.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas 52Teas sent to me. . . .

On the 4th Day of Christmas, my true love (I mean…52 Teas!) gave to me Peach Blackberry Crumble Black Tea! There are two ingredients in this blend that are my favorite when combined: peach and cinnamon pieces! Of course, there are also whole blackberries in here which definitely adds a unique twist, but the cinnamon and peach together are one of my favorite combos. This is obviously the fourth tea in this box and right now they are 4/4…I’ve loved them all! Every morning I scratch off the stickers and I’ve been so excited to try each tea and I truly haven’t been disappointed yet.

 Once this blend is steeped, you can definitely smell the sweet warmth of the cinnamon and just a hint of peach. It is one of the most perfect smells! On taste, the black tea is actually very bold and it’s slightly overpowering the other flavors. I do wish the peach and blackberry were more present. I feel like a different base may have allowed the flavors of the fruit to shine through a bit more. However, it is still a great tea. Very energizing, I’m getting a little energy boost so I must be right in saying that the black tea used here is pretty bold. I think that if iced tea is your thing, this would be a really great iced blend!  Either way, I would summarize this as a bold black tea with hints of peach and blackberry and a yummy cinnamon aroma. My anticipation for tomorrow’s tea is eating at me and I can’t wait to open them all but I’m controlling myself because I love the surprise! It is like a Christmas present every morning. We shall see what tomorrow’s brings

Presidential Peach from Impeach Teas. . . .

When I saw the title “Impeach Teas,” I was like “is this some kind of movement to impeach the Donald?”

It does not appear that the proceeds are used in that way, though they do appear to be fairly woke. They donate some proceeds to charity; the canisters are recycled; part of their process involves “an off-grid energy-independent green mill.”

First things first: this is a beautiful mix. It looks like fireworks. It has red white and blue accents (flower petals).

This is a really juicy peach Ceylon tea. I made it iced, because HELLO? SUMMERTIME. It has a very sunny feel. The peach is crisp and a little bit tart. I’m also catching notes of what might be pineapple/mango/coconut, though none of those things are listed in the ingredients. I think that, because I drink so many of those flavors iced, my mind smashes some of the flavors together.

My only wish, with regards to this tea, is that I’d had it to drink on the 4th of July. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Peach Crostata from A Quarter To Tea. . . .

What is a peach crostata? I feel like its some sort of pastry…so I googled it. I was right, its a pastry covered in sliced peaches. Yummy. I love peach anything and I also love anything that includes pie crust or pastry dough. But you know what I love even more? Teas that remind me of my favorite desserts, because they are virtually calorie free. Guilt free yumminess, how can you go wrong?

When I first checked out this sample bag I was immediately impressed because it included an anise star, which was cool because that is how the tea was advertised, with a star anise. So it was cool to get one in my sample bag, I just think they are so pretty. Once steeped I could smell the peach mingling with the sweet and light spices. Since this tea was created after a crostata, I was hoping for some sort of pastry or pie crust/bakery flavor. I definitely think that this tea was spot on! Its a little tough to explain, but after swallowing, the mouth feel is definitely pastry crust. The peach flavor is very light and so are the spices, but it works. The yunnan black tea is slightly strong. I steeped this for five minutes and I think that I would steep for 3 minutes. However, even through the over-steeping it was really good and true to it’s name.

All in all I really enjoyed this blend. I definitely recommend if you like peach, or even if you don’t- sometimes tastes can change! So, give it a try.
