I couldn't believe how aromatic this tea was when I poured the water onto the tea bag. Unfortunately, the flavor of both the base tea and the peach were barely there. There was a slight dryness at the end of each sip. Most tea bags are designed to infuse almost immediately but I struggled to get anything out of this one. Higher water temperatures yielded the same results. That being said, something tells me that this might be much better as an iced tea. I would wind up using quite a few tea bags though. I probably wouldn't recommend this tea.
