52Teas: Banana Peach Green Tea, Peach Cardamom Green Tea, and Peachy Keen Rooibos Blend

52Teas Green Rooibos Tea Herbal Three Spoons

Peaches are in season where I live! While I don’t always gravitate to them, who can say no to a juicy peach? Today, I will be trying three peach inspired teas, two greens and one rooibos from 52Teas. Let’s go!

 

Banana Peach Green Tea

Description: “I really liked the combination of sweet, somewhat creamy banana with the sweet peach.”

Review: I may have already mentioned this in the past, but I was often sick as a child. One flavour that is common here for medicine was artificial banana. Therefore, when I smelled the blend, I was a bit worried that I would not enjoy it. However, after steeping, the wet blend smelled more fruity, which was a relief for me.

The yellow liquor had a faint banana aroma. But, I found it tasted more like melon or cantaloupe. The tail note was bananas. This would be a nice blend for someone who likes melons or bananas mixed with a hint of grassiness (3/5 rating).

  • Type: Green tea
  • Origin: China
  • Caffeine: Medium to high
  • Ingredients: Green tea, freeze-dried bananas, freeze-dried peaches, natural flavors
  • Other: Organic
  • Company: 52Teas

 

Peach cardamom Green Tea

Description: “This was a pretty simple recipe: peach & cardamom with a buttery Chinese sencha base.”

Review: One thing I enjoy about 52Teas is how the blends are pretty true to some of the names, especially when it comes to names that feature ingredients. The ingredients list four things: tea, peaches, cardamom, and natural flavouring. Therefore, it was no surprise that the dry and wet blend had a strong cardamom aroma.

The steeped liquor was pale yellow and slightly murky. The liquor tasted herbal-like and of cardamon. I felt that it left my mouth feeling a bit dry. This would be a great blend for a huge cardamom fan because this is one of the first times I’ve seen it as a main ingredient (2/5 rating).

  • Type: Green tea
  • Origin: China
  • Caffeine: Medium to high
  • Ingredients: Green tea, freeze-dried peaches, crushed & whole cardamom pods, natural flavors
  • Other: Organic
  • Company: 52Teas

 

Peachy Keen Rooibos Blend

Description: “What I’m left with is an interesting, Peachy Keen sort of tisane with notes of peach, blackberry, vanilla cream and hints of fluffy marshmallow.”

Review: I find the smell of rooibos very earthy and strong, and this was no different – the dry blend had a fruity, sweet and earthy aroma which was the same when wet. Again, like most rooibos’ I’ve tried, the liquor was a reddish colour.

The liquor was sweet, and vanilla was the most prevalent taste. I will admit that I didn’t taste the peach. The liquor was fairly delicate. This might be nice if you want a slightly sweet tisane (2/5 rating).

  • Type: Rooibos tea
  • Origin: South Africa
  • Caffeine: Caffeine-free
  • Ingredients: Red rooibos, green rooibos, marshmallow root, dried peaches, freeze-dried blackberries, vanilla bean, natural flavors
  • Other: Organic
  • Company: 52Teas

 

Overall

Like in the past, I’ve always enjoyed 52Teas and all the unique blends. While all of these had peach as the main ingredient, I found the one that I enjoyed the most was the one I thought tasted like melons with a hint of banana. Do you like peaches or peach inspired tea?

Next month will be spicy teas from 52Teas! I have to admit, I am excited and nervous because I’m not a huge fan of spicy teas. Oh no!

    They all look fantastic! I’d love too Send you some samples of St Fiacres Farm loose leaf if you have room on your review list! Our best seller is our Cherry City Chai (chocolate and Oregon cherries) and Oregon Harvest Berry (OR blackberry leaf, OR aronia berries, OR corners and Oregon apples). Some have said it tastes like blackberry cobbler in a cup 🙂

    Thanks for sharing all the great teas, what a treat to get to taste so many different kinds!!

    Cheers, CeAnne

      Hello CeAnne,

      Thank you for reaching out to me! I didn’t see your comment in my queue until now. While I would love to try your blends (they all sound amazing!), I am currently very backlogged. Hopefully, you can recontact me in a few months time and I can tell you where I am with my reviews!

      Also, I agree, I am very fortunate to be able to try all these teas!

      Best of luck!
