These are incredibly busy days for me and my family. Besides a family situations we have going on, my 9-5 job is in the political arena so I’m pretty much working from the minute I wake up until the minute I’m heading to bed with emails still coming in. I do very much love my job but because of the craziness. . . .my tea drinking has fallen to the way side a bit and I’m missing my tea time so very much.
So after lunch the other day, I made it a priority to enjoy tea time (with snacks even) and grabbed a tea we recently relieved from Joseph’s Tea- Peach & Apricot Green Tea. This particular tea was in a tea bag so I knew that even if I had to quickly start working again, I would be able to easily keep drinking this delight.
Brewed with water at 170F and allowed to steep right around 3 minutes, this tea was a delightful surprise. Really sweet peachy notes with a subtle smoky flavor. I don’t get the apricot notes as much as I get the peachy notes, but I’ll be honest, I’m ok with that because of how lovely the peach flavor was.
This tea was really simple yet really lovely tea to enjoy and enjoy I did. This tea was my companion all afternoon. I found myself really digging the contrast of the sweet peach notes with the gunpowder green tea.
I did try for a few more resteeps and I was again pleasantly surprised. I can see this tea being a dynamite iced tea and something I will be trying in the future.

Gunpowder green tea with peach / apricot flavor.
Peach & Apricot Green Tea from Empire Tea Services is INTENSELY flavored and smells AWESOME! 🙂
The flavored gunpowder is shiny prior to infusion. After the infusion is complete – the leaves expand quite a bit – and are still very highly scented.
The post-infused liquid is quite dark in color…probably the darkest I have seen for a gunpowder.
The flavor of this is really REALLY good…very Peach AND Apricot and equally-so! The gunpowder taste is present but in the background.
This is a highly flavored gunpowder and I like it a lot – mostly because of the flavors we are dealing with here! I love both Peach and Apricot and think they BOTH go really well with Green Tea.
