This is one of my favorites. I often walk to my tea cabinet just to smell this blend. The second my tin is open, my mouth waters! The tea smells so sweet, that it’s like a snack. The tea consists of large pieces of fruit that remind me of a fresh fruit trail mix.
The smell of the tea is similar to fruit salad. You can really smell the sweetness of the peach and apple. The ingredients are: peach pieces (with separating agent rice flour), grapes, apple pieces, fig slices, candied peach pieces (peach, sugar), flavoring (peach, grape, vanilla, pepper), plum pieces (with separating agent rice flour), apple slices, pepper, vanilla pieces, orange pieces. The tea is so fresh that the pieces are still moist!
I steeped this tea in my little cup infuser with boiling water for 6 minutes. I used 2 tsp of tea to 10 oz of water and added 1 tsp of German Rock Sugar. The color of the liquid is a beautiful golden-yellow. Some of the flavors sink to the bottom so it’s important to swirl before you sip – like a fine wine! Although overall, I would describe this tea is fairly mild, it packs a LOT of fruit flavor.
Teavana describes this tea as:
A toast to ‘the good life,’ joy and celebration abound with each sip of this ‘champagne’ of herbal teas. Sip the delicate pale yellow liquor with golden highlights of sweet white peaches, candied lemon, regal figs and a creamy Madagascar vanilla ending. A seamless blend of happiness in a cup. Sweet peach and grape with lingering citrus & a hint of white pepper and vanilla.
The taste is just heaven to me. I can definitely taste the peach and there is a little kick at the end which must be the vanilla and citrus. It’s hard to pinpoint the most prominent flavor since there are so many mellow fruits in this blend.
This is such a sweet blend of perfection great for bedtime!
