|"A delicious peach tea with a hint of ginger... delicious hot or iced, and one of the best oolongs I've tried."|
My sample of this tea consisted of good sized oolong leaves and a generous amount of ginger root. As much as I tried, I couldn't see anything that resembled the pieces of peach pictured on the website. But, regardless of that, it is the peach aroma and flavor that commands all the attention. Many oolongs have a light peachiness to their flavor naturally, and the juicy peach added to this blend is a PERFECT addition. It doesn't taste or smell the least bit artificial and is absolutely delicious. The ginger root though quite plentiful visually, was a very delicate addition to the finished brew. In this particular tea, that was definitely a plus, as ginger can sometimes overwhelm the other flavors. Ginger is touted as an aid in digestion so its addition would probably help to make this an excellent tea to drink both during and after a meal. I tried it hot first and didn't think there was much chance of it being any better iced, but I believe I was wrong. It makes a delightful iced tea that I plan to be enjoying alot more of this summer. I believe this is the best flavored oolong I have tried.
