This is another one that I definitely missed when I was looking at the site and I think that’s a shame because I liked this a lot. Of the four free samples I received and tasted through this weekend, it’s the one that I would absolutely want to purchase.
Like most of the fruity teas from The Tea Girl so far, it is much of a candy-style of sweet peach flavour. However, I think that’s perfectly to be expected with a name like Fuzzy Peach and I think the taste itself is great. It’s bright and juicy with enough of a tang to it that I do think of the Fuzzy Peach candies but not so much that it’s sour or unpleasantly sharp. In fact, I would be surprised if there’s not a cream or vanilla flavour in this tea because as lovely and vibrant as that sweet tangy peach note is it’s also balanced and offset by the silky and creamy undertone and finishing flavour that creates a ‘Peaches and Cream’ vibe. I love a blend that can be both things and the balance here is delicious! It’s also not heavy and I didn’t feel like the flavours built up to a cloying sweetness by the time I had finished the mug.
I know there’s lychee flavour in the tea but I don’t really taste it too distinctly. I imagine it’s contributing a lot to the juicy and fresh feeling of the peach. Peach and lychee get paired a fair amount because they bring out that juiciness in each other (and sometimes for the floral undertones too).
I don’t think I actually own a good peach rooibos tea, so I feel like this would actually fit a whole in my stash. Definitely one I will keep in mind heavily for future orders!
