After tasting Rua Tea‘s White Strawberry Tea, I knew I had to try their White Peach as well, and I was not disappointed at all. This is a delicate tea, as most White Teas are, however this tea is absolutely infused with the most delicious, sweet luscious peach flavor.
Although the fragrance and flavor of this tea is a heavenly peach throughout, the appearance of the leaves is absolutely stunning also. Beautiful crisp full leaves, not withered or crumbled, but completely full leaves make this tea even more gorgeous to look at in it’s clear lidded tin.
Rua Tea describes this tea as:
The delicate sweetness of ripe peaches is combined with delicate white tea from the Fujian region of China to create a this toothsome flavor of tea. Enjoy it hot or iced.
Recommendations: Use 1 tablespoon (2gr.) per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water until steaming briskly (185°F); let steep for 2 min.
I let mine steep for a bit longer, at about 4-5 minutes because I have such a difficult time tasting a lot of the more subtle nuances in white teas. If you like your tea a little stronger like I do, you may want to increase the steeping time also.
This is such a lovely bouquet of fruity and floral flavors and aromas. This would make the most incredible White Peach iced tea ever. I highly recommend this tea for any time of day or night. Although I think I like the White Strawberry Tea slightly better (just my own personal preference), this peach tea is also a lovely summer fruit-based white tea!
