The August Peach Experience: Bright, fresh, nectar-like
Sipping this tea reminds us of fresh fruit stands and the summer vacations of childhood. Cheerful peach notes come forward while the oolong imparts a woodsy finish. It’s a little musky upfront, which adds to the uniqueness. Sublime and slightly sweet, August Peach Oolong leaves you with lingering happiness, just like those memories of childhood summers.
Tasting Notes: peaches, floral, tropical fruit
The dry leaf blend is colorful, highlighted by the marigold petals. The golden amber infusion is dripping with stone fruit and a floral note from the rose hips. After the initial sweetness comes the woodsy oolong notes with hints of cocoa and roasted fruits. As with other oolongs, you can infuse the tea leaves more than once. With each subsequent steep the peach notes quiet, while deep roasty oolong emerges.
Ingredients: Oolong Tea, Rosehips, Peaches, Marigold Petals, Flavor.

Savoring Your Experience:
Serve our August Peach Oolong hot with fresh fruit cobbler, sweet potato pie or baked apples with vanilla ice cream and candied pecans. Or, over ice August Peach for a fruity summertime sweet tea! Always brew with fresh water, just before a full boil. Experiment with the amount of leaves (sometimes twice the amount as brewing for hot tea) and vary steeping times to find your perfect cup.
This tea evolves over multiple steepings, so be sure to brew it multiple times in one sipping session.
Peaches are a symbol of the height of summer! They originated in China, where they were considered a cherished fruit of the emperors. Today, peaches are a beloved fruit around the world, and peaches are the second largest commercial fruit crop in the U.S., after apples.
