When discovering Peach Blossom from Fusion Teas I find the bag proclaims this tea as an oolong, it is in fact a blend of several types of tea. I do taste the oolong, and it is nice, rather on the mellow side though but I feel that is exactly what this tea is wanting to portray.
Its a lovely exploration into the orchard or garden. A quite time with your favorite book, or a serene landscape where little creatures feel safe to play. That is the emotion this tea evokes.
The peach flavor in this tea is not over done, although personally I can never get enough peach, but it is nice, subdued, and well mannered. I do get just a touch of the flavoring as being somewhat artificial like, but not so much so that it turns me off.
The mouthfeel is slightly full, a tad but creamy, and heavy enough that I feel one could ice this nicely.
I like the touch of jasmine green and jasmine petals in this tea and again, it is not over done and does not take on too much of a floral aspect yet is easy enough to detect.
Normally I am not a big fan of so many teas being blended together. I often find that the blend would have been far better if only one tea base had been chosen. This tea however seems to do exactly what it has aimed to do. It creates a soft balance between a fruity tea, a floral tea, and a tea that whispers in your ear gently, yet is strong enough to stand it’s ground. Just like the Heroine in one of my favorite books. This may just have to be in my tea rotation to drink while reading outdoors this spring!

What a gorgeous green tea!
I was assuming it was just going to be green tea with flavoring but you can see all the different floral ingredients within.
It’s VERY pretty! The Jasmine (and other flowers) are wonderfully done…noticeable but not overly intense….not to mention colorful and pleasing to the eyes!
There is a nice sweeter side of the green tea coming out and it shine thru with the floral notes!
This is REALLY nice…I wish more Jasmine Teas could be this nice! Thank you Green Tea Lovers for a beautiful tea…inside and out! This wakes-up the sense, that is for sure!
