I absolutely LOVE this tea. The aroma is amazing! It smells sweet and fruity, somewhat floral and leafy, and reminds me of the air here in the Pacific Northwest just after it rains (which it does a lot here).
The dry leaves are fuzzy and even though they resemble spears or “needles” – they are light and fluffy. Silvery! And the flavor they produce when steeped is so delightful.
The flavor is delicate and sweet. I can taste peaches! Fresh, delicious peaches! The taste is crisp and slightly vegetative. Clean and invigorating!
The mere act of sipping this tea is truly a meditative process. First, inhaling deeply to experience its sweet fragrance, and then taking a sip and allowing the flavors to develop onto the palate, all the while I can feel the stresses of the day disappear as my spirit rejuvenates.
I love this tea! This is a tea I could drink every day and never grow weary of it.
