Summery Peach Fuzz White Tea
Peach Fuzz White Tea is all about summertime! The white tea base is malty and sweet. It’s pretty dry leaf is highlighted with bits of peaches and apples, and the bright orange safflowers. It brews into a cheery, orange-colored infusion. The complex aroma is rich, with notes of baked sweets (think: peach cobbler, apple pie). The flavor is reminiscent of a summer day on a Georgia peach orchard—sweet, juicy—with hints of apple and a malty, floral white tea base. The smooth mouthfeel of this lush blend makes it ideal for iced tea in warm weather.
This versatile peach tea brews up into a smooth, soothing hot tea and a crisp, cool iced tea. Peach is a classic flavor for iced tea, and this is our new favorite peach blend for making into iced tea. For traditional iced tea, simply brew the tea at double strength (twice the leaf for the volume of water), then pour over ice and enjoy.
For a bubbly variation on iced tea, make a batch of Peach Fuzz, and then boil it down to half its volume with an equal amount of sugar to make a peach tea simple syrup. Store it in a jar in the fridge until you’re ready for instant iced tea, then simply stir a teaspoon or so of syrup in with a glass of sparkling water (or sparkling wine!) for a quick, easy, bubbly iced tea anytime.
