Brew Lab Tea Peach Green

Ingredients: green tea, dried peaches

I was really excited to try this tea because it's first offering that I've tried from +Brew Lab Tea after I have been following them on Tumblr for a while. I couldn't believe how large the pieces of dried peach were. Although it wasn't listed on the product page, the leaves were unmistakably sencha. The taste was wonderfully light and sweet. Pan fired green tea proved to be a perfect match for the sweet peach. It came across as a gentle fruity note rather than sticky or overdone. I love that they did not use any artificial flavorings to accomplish that. Simple is always best when it comes to blends and you can't get much simpler than this. It was very enjoyable hot, even on a warm and humid day but if you're in the mood for iced tea, try cold infusing this in a mason jar. No sweetener is necessary in either case but a touch of agave might work if you were so inclined. I contributed a recipe for Peach Green Tea Granita that featured this tea to the Brew Lab Tea's blog.
