A well-balanced combination of Chinese Sencha, osmanthus petals and peach essences. It tastes like outdoors in the spring! The sweet flavours of peach and floral notes from osmanthus are exceptionally matched with the grassy, lightly vegetal taste of Sencha. Each ingredient perfectly balancing out the other. This tea has slight creaminess when served hot. It really shines when served as iced tea.

Nice flavour however the peachy taste could have been a bit stronger

I wanted to love this one, but it didn’t taste peachy in the slightest. I got lots of grassy notes and much more green tea flavour with almost no fruity hints. I was really looking for something peachy, and I’m sadly disappointed.

How to steep green tea properly - by Richard Isaac
In our workshops we come across a lot of people who didn’t previously realize that steeping time and water temperature affect the taste of tea drastically. Just a difference of 15 seconds, or a temperature variance of as little as 2 degrees can make the difference between an exquisite cup of tea and an awfully bitter tea experience.
Green tea, White Tea, and Oolong Tea
Using boiling water to steep tea only works well for black teas and herbal ‘teas’. For green, white, and oolong teas, boiling water can burn the tea leaves and make the tea very bitter. Generally there is a range between 75C and 85C for green, white, and oolong teas (see our specific tea product pages for temperature guidelines), but of course most people do not have a thermometer ready to measure water temperature; instead, they will simply wait for the kettle to whistle, then pour water onto the leaves. Again, this is fine for black teas and herbal teas, but there are a few tricks you can use to make sure that your water is closer to the appropriate temperature for your tea.
