The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Limited Edition Peach Teas - Review

Just Peachy

New Limited Edition Peach Teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

From the highlands of Sri Lanka and the tea gardens of northern Thailand come the newest additions to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s line-up of teas. Only available for a limited time, these peach-infused brews hold all the flavor of the luscious peach, as well as the freshness of ginger and heather in the Peach Ginger Green Tea, and a hint of sweet lychee and honey in the Spring Peach Oolong Tea. Before the tea bag even hits the water, the potent aroma of ripe fruit is just a preface to the flavors to come. The presence of peach contributes enough sweetness that adding sugar or honey is not necessary, but be sure to heed the warning of over-steeping, because this tea can quickly turn bitter if not watched closely.

Price: Both the Peach Ginger Green Tea and Spring Peach Oolong Tea are $10.20 each for 20 whole leaf tea bags (approximately 2.5 oz.)

Recommended steeping time: 3 minutes

Rating: 13/20
