So this just came in the mail today as part of my 52 teas box. I was immediately excited as I love peaches and I love peaches and cream even more. Upon opening the package I immediately noticed the sweet peach smell and the actual pieces of peach in it. So I set about brewing it up. 1.5min/175f/2tsp/12oz
Taste is… ok not what I was expecting. It’s got a background sweetness and I can definitely taste the peach. But the flavors are conflicting. I grabbed a splenda in case I wanted to try adding that and I think I do. Well, with the splenda, the “peaches and cream” flavor really comes out, but I still feel as though it is conflicting with the genmaicha. It’s like this tea is trying to be two opposite things at once – sweet-light-fluffy and roasty-vegetal-buttery at the same time. It isn’t really working for me. It’s drinkable, but the conflicting flavors really are confusing my senses. I don’t think I will be getting more of this after all, unless it really starts to grow on me quickly.
