Thumbs up!"The candy-like peach flavor dominates and while anyone could clearly identify this as a peach tea, I don’t think it actually tastes like real peaches."

kteaslogoYellow Tea is something I am not overly familiar with. In fact, I had to do some internet research prior to writing this review to familiarize myself a bit more with yellow tea. I learned that yellow tea is made only in China and lies somewhere between green tea and oolong tea, with a little extra oxidation and extended drying time to remove the grassy flavor commonly associated with green tea. The Peach Yellow tea ingredients listed on KTeas website are: yellow tea from China, sunflower blossoms, and natural flavor. The dry leaves are very large and loose in a fluffy sort of way. The sunflower blossoms add visual appeal to the tea. The tea has a strong scent of what we tend to associate with peaches. I have noticed that almost all peach-flavored foods and drinks, and even canned peaches, never quite taste like a fresh peach. Instead, they take on this syrupy sweet flavor that we come to identify as peach, but really isn’t all that close to real peach flavor. That is the case with this tea. The candy-like peach flavor dominates and while anyone could clearly identify this as a peach tea, I don’t think it actually tastes like real peaches. I couldn’t really taste much of the yellow tea, either because perhaps it is supposed to be a subtle tea (when compared to green tea) or because the peach flavor overwhelmed the natural tea flavor. Still, this tea is enjoyable enough and I think that anyone who typically likes peach flavored foods and drinks will like this tea. Since “natural flavor” is the only source of peach in this tea, I am curious what exactly this natural flavor was. This tea is plenty sweet on its own and doesn’t need sugar or honey. This tea was a decent brew both hot and iced. I personally wasn’t a huge fan of this tea because of my quirky issues with peach flavorings never quite tasting like peach, but I do think this has potential as a delicious fruit-flavored iced tea for those that like peach flavors.
