Taster’s Review:

I had high hopes for this particular flavor of iced tea from Southern Boy Teas.  The idea of a Peaches & Cream iced green tea sounded oh so yummy!

Unfortunately, I don’t get a strong peach or cream flavor from this one.  Not while it’s cold, anyway.  I found that after the tea came to room temperature, rather than cold, right out of the fridge, the flavors developed a little bit.

Which was kind of a disappointment, because hey, let’s face it, we drink iced tea because we’re looking for a chilled beverage, right?

The green tea is a light tasting green tea with soft buttery notes.  These buttery notes do accentuate the cream flavor, but only slightly.  Slight vegetal tones to the green tea.  It’s a light and fresh tasting green tea – enjoyable.

As I mentioned earlier, I found the peach to be very difficult to discern when the tea is served cold.  I keep the glass of iced tea sitting out on the counter for about fifteen or twenty minutes for the temperature to get out of the “chilly” and a little closer to “room temperature” before I drink it now, because it’s at this temperature that it tastes best.  The cream notes are a little easier to discern than the peach, it’s a soft, vanilla-y note and it’s nice.

It’s a pleasant enough iced tea but I enjoyed several other green iced teas from Southern Boy Teas much more than I enjoyed this one.  Good … but not great.

To brew:  I used the “hot brew” method, heating 1 quart of freshly filtered water to 170°F and steeping for 1 1/2 minutes.  Then I poured the brewed tea into my tea pitcher and resteeped the pouch again, 1 quart of water, 170°F and 2 minutes.  Then I combined the two quarts of brewed tea together and chilled them in refrigerator until cold.
