It’s a cold winter’s day here in the Pacific Northwest, but the tea that’s in my teacup right now reminds me of warm summer days when I can find fresh, ripe, juicy peaches at my local produce market. This Madame Butterfly Flavored Green Tea from Gurman’s Tea & Coffee tastes (and smells!) just like summer!
What I like best about this particular peach flavored green tea is that it’s not overdone. Occasionally, I’ll come across a peach flavored tea that has been flavored with a heavy hand and the peach notes completely overwhelm the flavor of the green tea, and what’s worse, because the peach is such a prominent flavor, it often tastes artificial and chemical-y. But that isn’t the case with this tea from Gurman’s.
Here, the flavor is just right. It tastes delicately of peaches, and the green tea is the prominent flavor in the cup. I taste the lush flavor of the Sencha green tea: sweet with contrasting savory tones, and a backdrop of buttered vegetable flavor. Then the flavor of sweet peaches comes through, and the peach notes taste true to the fruit. Sweet and juicy, tasting as though someone pureed a fresh, ripe peach and strained the juices into my teacup.
A really wonderful peach flavored green tea, this Madame Butterfly from Gurman’s. It’s a nice way to celebrate the splendor of summer even when the weather is chilly outside.
