The aroma of the dry leaf is strong and distinctively peach and apricot. So distinctive that I could smell it the moment I opened the pouch! It smells so mouthwateringly delicious, so true to the fruit essences, so much like summer! YUM!
The flavor is also strong, but I like that there is a pleasing balance between the flavor of the Temple of Heaven green tea and the stone fruit. The green tea tastes fresh and a little creamy. There are toasty nut notes and whispers of smoke in the distance. Vegetative but not overwhelmingly so.
And the fruit notes do not taste chemical or artificial. It tastes as though fresh, tree ripened peaches and apricots had been liquified and mixed in a 1:1 ratio with green tea! So sweet and luscious.
This tea is absolutely lovely. It tastes good hot, but I prefer it iced – it is a delicious representation of two of my favorite summertime fruits. This one is really good … certainly one of the best flavored green teas I’ve tried lately. If you’re a fan of peach or apricot (or both!) … you’ve got to try this!
