Celestial Seasonings Peach Blossom Green Tea

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: dark green, very small
Ingredients: Green tea, white tea, natural peach flavor with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin) and peaches.
Steep time: 2 minutes
Water Temperature:175 degrees
Preparation Method: ceramic mug
Liquor: gold

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.

  1. It is lovely that you got to attend. You set your mind and made your way there. I have been wanting to attend tea festivals since 2011; and I keep on missing them. Due to no connection, no money as I tend to spend immediately what little there is.

    I had submitted an email to try and volunteer at event but I never did hear from the director, a Linda? Also, I could not get ride due to gas cost/mileage.
    It was nice of you to post photos of some of your purchases and experience.

    I always close my eyes,unintentionally, when pictures are taken of me; it comes from being insecure and not liking to be photographed.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. I tend to spend to much at these things too but I have such a good that it almost balances out. You should definitely try to go to the one in Atlantic City as its pretty easy to find cheap bus trips there. Thanks for your comment!
