A friend brought over a bag of Blueberry Green that we are splitting and brought some sachets of this tea for us to try as well. I thought I had tasted most of the teas that Harney and Sons offers, but looking at their website and new offerings, I see that I have some catching up to do!
First, my youngest daughter loves peaches and lives almost exclusively on raw fruit and carrots. Seriously. And she went wild over this tea. She said it was, “The truest peach flavor I have ever had in a tea.”
I had steeped two bags in a pot and she was pretty desolate when we reached the bottom, so I resteeped. The resteep is my preference, the first steep is her preference, though we like both. On the resteep, the color is still strong but the peach flavor has faded and the Bai Mu Dan shines through. The website says that there is a hint of vanilla in this. I don’t really taste vanilla up front but I suspect it makes the peach have a fuller, mellow flavor. Good stuff.
