Pale flowered linen summer sundresses, walking barefoot through the grass, the scent of flowers in the air… and Perfectly Peachy. Summer – in a glass.
The second sample of tea I tried from Rabbit’s Pantry was Perfectly Peachy. This is an “Organic black tea with organic peach pieces and natural peach flavor” according to the website.
I made two cups of this tea from the sample given to me, and unfortunately they were quite different from one another. My guess, like a lot of flavour-added teas, that the flavour really immerses itself with the first cup, and then is a bit ‘washed out’ with the second.
The first cup tasted JUICY – a really lovely peach flavour mingled really well with the tea. The peach taste wasn’t super strong though – it was still tea. I dressed it with sweetener and milk to really bring out the fruity taste which worked really well.
The second cup was far less peachy – it really just tasted like black tea… However…. I dressed it with milk and sugar again, and popped it in the fridge – and chilling it brings back a lot of the fruity taste.
If you miss David’s Tea Southern Belle (no longer available) it’s a pretty good substitute – and has the benefit of being able to add your own dairy and sweetener, instead of having them pre-added for you…
Jessica, the owner of Rabbit’s Pantry also suggested that all the teas might be good as a mixer… now I hear “mixer” and I think booze. I think this would be amazeballs made ‘adult’ with a peach schnapps – or maybe with a vanilla-flavoured liqueur!
The Rabbits Pantry is based in Silvana, Washington, and all of their teas are organic and fair trade when available. My samples were sent pre-measured out in tea bags… but I love my loose tea – loose – so I clipped open the bags and used my infuser instead. Ok.. mostly so I could photograph they tea! The Rabbits Pantry packaging is all compostable – including the little pink envelopes that my samples were packaged in – they’re made of wood! Visit them on Facebook here. They’re currently updating their website (visit here) and I was super happy to see that between my first reviewed tea (Hot Mess) and this one… ingredients are now part of the tea descriptions!
Stay tuned – soon I’ll have reviews of some of the other teas from Rabbits Pantry!
