Another of my accidental purchases courtesy of the Lupicia discount coupon.
The dry leaves smell of several things: the peach isn’t central but I’m sure I can smell it, and there’s something in there that smells so green that I’m not thinking so much vegetal as vegetable. Fortunately, the eau de broccoli disappears from the brewed tea. The remaining green-ness is of the tea variety. I’m not much of a rooibos fan, but the green rooibos works well in conjunction with the green tea. Meanwhile, the peach note is more obvious than it was in the aroma; there’s a little of that silky ‘full’ sort of texture that I’ve grown to associate with some of the better stone fruit teas.
This is a much better tea than many fruit-herbal blends involving lots of different elements. Yeah, I’ll be having this one again.
