The fruitful Peach flavor plays second string to the Sencha flavor. With the first sip you sense a sweet and sour taste then the taste of a premium Sencha comes though.

I’m really loving the tea I’m producing using the cold-brewing method, and since I finished the last of the Southern Boy Teas a few days ago, I decided that I needed something else that was easy to cold-brew. At about that same time, I saw that Den’s Tea had these great cold-brew green iced teas so I decided to try a few of them. This is the first of four that I’ll be trying over the next couple of weeks.
I let this brew overnight (this is one of the things I love best about cold-brewing tea, I just let it do it’s thing overnight, then in the morning, I have iced tea, already good and chilled and ready to drink), and even after a good 12 hours of brewing, it did not become bitter.
The sencha is vegetative and stands out as the strongest flavor. The touch of Matcha enhances the vegetative tones and gives the tea a nicely smooth flavor. The tea offers a savory tone that contrasts with the sweet, juicy flavor of the peach.
This is so well-rounded: sweet, a little sour, and savory. It has a very satisfying, refreshing flavor that doesn’t need sweetener – which is a big plus in my book. And while it is sweet, it doesn’t come off as cloying. It doesn’t taste too vegetative. It has a really pleasing complexity.
This is not your average glass of iced tea!
