I just received my large order of tea from Liquid Proust Teas. This tea was the first one I tried because I asked my wife which one she wanted to sample first and this was the one.
The name of this is so appropriate. At first I thought this was just a kind of quirky name for the sake of having fun. But after smelling and tasting this tea, I get EXACTLY how he came up with the name. The dry leaf scent of bergamot come through with a peachy note intertwined. It is enough to catch your attention. But the magic really happens when the leaves are steeped.
The liquid has such a sugary sweet peach note that my wife and I couldn’t stop smelling the cup. It is seriously bordering on magical how a tea is able to elicit such a sugary sweet note on the nose. The wet leaf definitely lets the bergamot shine. The taste on the tongue alternates between the peach and the earl grey type of flavor. Like I said, with the whole scent and tasting experience, the naming of this tea becomes obvious. I think the choice of the formosa is really an understated key as to why/how this tea becomes more that just an average tea. I think it lends itself well to create the sugary sweet peach here.
Really fantastic introduction to Liquid Proust Teas.
