Green Mango Peach from Tea Forté

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green Tea & Honeybush

Where to Buy: Tea Forté

Product Description:

Fragrant mangoes and peach scent every cup of our lightly steamed green tea with honeybush and a touch of peppermint.

Taster’s Review:

I received a “single steep” package of this tea along with my KATI tumbler, and before I get too deep into reviewing this tea, I want to say that I just love these single steep packages!  They are pre-measured with just the right amount of tea for my KATI cup.  Armed with the KATI tumbler and some of these single steep packages, a tea lover has just about everything they need to brew a delicious cup of loose leaf tea anywhere they go!  Just add hot water!

Now… on to the tea!  The flavors of mango and peach permeate each sip of this tea.  It is intensely flavored!  The green tea base is able to hold its own though, and isn’t overwhelmed.  I can taste the fresh, light taste of green tea in the background.

Less noticeable is the flavor of the honeybush, although I can taste the honey-like sweetness from it.  The mint in this blend offers a herbaceous, somewhat medicinal taste to the cup that is reminiscent to menthol.  I don’t find this to be off-putting, but I can see how others might.  The flavor doesn’t overpower the cup, and I will say that the mint flavor lends a very nice minty aftertaste to the tea experience.

I like the ginger’s presence in this cup.  It is not too strong, but it adds a nice dimension of flavor and cuts through the sweeter notes of the fruit.  It has a well-rounded taste to it.  A lovely afternoon cuppa!

Jasmine Peach Bai Mu Dan from Samovar

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  White

Where to Buy:  Samovar

Product Description:

Organic white tea, organic osthmanthus flowers, organic jasmine flowers, natural peach flavor and natural essential oils of orange and tangerine blended in the U.S.

Flavor Profile: Consummately floral, with notes of fresh citrus, white peach, white pepper, toasted amaranth and a trace of fresh blueberries.

Taster’s Review:

This is a beautifully floral tea – I love how well the jasmine and the osmanthus work together.  It creates a light and lively flower-y essence that is not sharp like some floral notes can be, and because of the fruit-like flavors of the osmanthus, the flavors here do not come across as soapy.

The white tea is very delicate here.  There is a whisper of vegetation to this tea that is barely there, mostly what I taste from the tea is the white tea sweetness with a hint of spice.  It sits in the background, making its presence known without being too obsequious.

The peach flavor is the real star – I love how it shines through!  It tastes like a fresh, ripe peach, bursting with flavor!  The citrus tones of this tea bring a little tangy flavor to the cup, just enough tart to keep it from being too sweet.

This is a lovely white tea.  It is one that was sold out at the time that I wrote this review, I do hope that the supply will be replenished.  It is a fantastic springtime tea!

Halo from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is just outstanding and AMAZING!!!
It perfectly opened/bloomed the first time around without any imperfections whatso-ever and smelled of blueberry and peaches and that’s on top of the floral aroma…how awesome is that for a blooming tea!!??

I could taste the blueberry, peach, and flowers and it’s very yummy!

I tried a 2nd infusion on this and it was still very tasty!  The only notable difference was the 2nd infusion was more floral.  It was still an overall wonderful flavor tho!

This is probably one of my favorite blooming teas or flowering teas I have tried  to date!  This is VERY special!

Tasters Review:

SororiTEA Sisters was one of the first Tea Review Blogs to review a bottled tea from Marley Beverage Company and we are proud to say that we have a 2nd review to share!  This time around we have All Natural Relaxation Marley’s Mellow Mood Black Tea – Peach Raspberry Passion Fruit.  It says it reduces stress and relieves tension.  It’s decaf, too!  To check out the review we posted back in November for Marley Beverage Company’s Green Tea and Honey CLICK HERE!

As far as a bottled iced tea this is pretty tasty!  As far as a decaf-sweetened-bottled-iced-tea this is pretty awesome, I must say!  Yes, it’s sweet and it’s fruity but here is a lengthier review of this groovy product…

Upon opening the bottle I could smell peach followed by passion fruit with a little berry tied in.  It almost smelled wine-like.  It was a glorious aroma! 

My first sip was an eye-opening one!  It was much flavorful than I expected!  A nice-sweet-fruity bottled iced tea is certainly what we have here!  The black tea taste isn’t in the forefront – it seems to be hiding in the background – but with all of the other flavors going on here there is a lot of others to keep me interested and busy!  I could taste the Passion Fruit first and then the Raspberry and the peach isn’t as strong as I thought it would be but that is ok!  It doesn’t leave a funky aftertaste which I appreciate!

This is another pleasant surprise from Marley Beverage Company.

Now…I’ll leave you with another of my favorite Bob Marley songs…

Ahhh!  But there are so many to choose from…

Today I choose…

Peach oolong has a sweet floral peach aroma that evokes images of warm summer days. This high altitude Taiwanese tea starts off with a light floral flavor that quickly develops into a natural white peach flavor that lingers.

Our Peach Oolong is good for multiple infusions.

Tasters Review:

Peach Oolong from Butiki Teas…another flavored Oolong from a company I would suggest to ANYONE looking for good-solid-flavored Oolongs…Butiki Teas!

This tastes JUST LIKE White Peaches…Sweet and juicy…just the way I like ’em!

If you like Peach – try this!  If you are looking for a nicely flavored Oolong…TRY THIS!

It’s squeaky clean, highly flavored, and totally YUMMY, and still true Oolong! YUM!

It also leaves a pleasantly sweet aftertaste and I think it’s just lovely!

Where To Buy: Praise Tea

Product Description:
A fabulous blend of select black and green teas with fruity, peach-like notes. A Black and Green Tea Blend is a unique new way to enjoy the nutritional benefits of Black tea plus the anti-oxidant properties of Green tea.

Tasters Review:

Completion Tea from Praise Tea is a great green tea and black tea blend!  I’m always interested in blends with more than one tea type base!

The fruity-peach and floral-rose type tastes meet in the middle as do the green tea and black tea tastes!  Everything is pretty even taste-wise and nothing is too overpowering!

Having said that…this IS a flavorful blend!  I really enjoyed all of the flavors here!  Well Done!

Peach Melba from Lupicia

IT'S NATIONAL PEACH MELBA DAY!

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Roobios

Where to Buy:  Lupicia

Product Description:

The delicious aroma of peaches and cream brings out the sweetness of the rooibos tea.

Taster’s Review:

I have never tasted the dessert before, but if it tastes anything like this tisane, I will definitely have to seek it out!

This is really quite good.  The overall flavor is sweet and fruity, but it isn’t cloying or too fruity.  The fact that the rooibos flavor is rather indistinct in this blend is a plus.  I am getting mere whispers of nutty notes from the rooibos, but what I am mostly tasting is a juicy peach and creamy vanilla!

The peach tastes sweet, but it isn’t a sugary sweet flavor that I imagined it would be given that a Peach Melba is vanilla ice cream topped with peaches and raspberries that have been reduced into a sauce.  (Or at least, that is what I think a Peach Melba is supposed to be… if it’s something different, please feel free to comment and set me straight!)  The vanilla is smooth and creamy.  The only thing that seems to be missing is the raspberry.

Yum!  This tisane makes for a delightful treat any time of the day and is especially nice in the evening since it’s caffeine free.
