|"While delicious as a hot drink this infusion really shines when iced. Perfect for kids and adults."|
When dry this delightful infusion's aroma reminds me strongly of peaches which is appropriate. What surprised me was the hints of pineapple that I am picking up. The ingredients consist of organic green rooibos, orange peel, sunflower petals, peach, strawberry and orange flavoring. I don't run across green rooibos very often which makes this even more of a treat.
I set it up to brew using 200 degree water and a steep time of 5 minutes. Actually the directions on my container calls for 3 to 5 minutes so I decided to go to the outer range. The resulting liquor has an aroma that reminded me fresh peaches being prepared for a pie.
I was very pleased with this infusion. When hot it was almost like drinking a heated fruit juice would be great with a bit of rum for the holiday season. It had a creamy texture and naturally sweet from the peaches with just a bit of tartness from the strawberry flavoring.
Where this infusion really shines is as an iced tea which makes me sad that I didn't check it out earlier in the year. It really is like drinking a lighter peach juice. Very natural tasting. Very refreshing and sure to please both kids and adults. You can bet that I will have a large supply on hand for next summer.
