Page 1 of 1 page with 4 reviewsI got this tea from Alex Z and it was really good flavor with a sharp Green tea and the mild flavor of Jasmine flower and peach. Just be sure not to use to many pearls.
I enjoyed the Green tea with a fruity flavor of peach because it gives the illusion of adding sweetness with no sweeter. But the Peach really over power the Jasmine too much. Jasmine has a very mild flavor but a strong aroma so its hard to find the right paring of Jasmine and another flavor.
All in all a very good cup, leaves you with the nice warm sense of tea.
I'm not sure if I can review this tea accurately. I misjudged; I used too much tea and I think I steeped it for too long, so I got a bitter, astringent cup. The aroma, dry or steeped, is incredible - hearty, natural peach. Even with an over-steeped, strong cup, the peach flavor was still awesome. I'd probably use 7-10 pearls and steep for 2 or fewer minutes, if I were making it again.

Regardless, the flavor remained fresh and not bitter, so it was pretty easy to brew at work. I've got two lovely cups out of 7 pearls so far, and am hopeful the third cup this afternoon will go well as well.

I was intrigued to try this tea, in large part because TeaVivre tends to focus on traditional unflavored teas.
The leaf has a strong aroma of peach, and I notice little else, neither jasmine nor the base tea, but the peach smells rich and natural, like dried peaches rather than flavoring.
Upon brewing, I find the peach aroma becomes more subdued, and the tea becomes balanced. The base tea is strongly evident in the flavor, which is surprisingly bold. I also detect some tones of melon, which I am pretty sure are coming from the tea rather than the flavoring, but which blend well with the fruity flavoring.
The jasmine really seems to disappear under the peach...I might notice it if it were somehow taken out, but I can't discern it when drinking the cup. I do notice a lot of interesting complexities of aroma though, including a hint of cinnamon.
Brewed 2 minutes with 185F water, as instructed, the leaf produced a relatively mild cup with a flavor that was smooth but not too weak, and a nice aroma. I used 12 pearls to brew a cup; this was the amount that fit easily in a teaspoon. I think this is a good quantity of leaf although you could use more if you want a stronger cup, but I preferred a longer (3 minute) steeping best.
Easily brews multiple cups. The second cup is easy to oversteep, so I recommend using about the same steeping time, or less, for the second cup, as it produces a bold flavor. I was able to easily produce three steeps, and the balance of the peach flavoring with the base tea remained remarkably consistent. Four steeps is not too hard to achieve, and the peach flavoring persists. The green tea and jasmine may come out slightly more in the later cups, but the peach flavoring is still there and tastes just right to me.
I am impressed. I tend not to like flavored teas, and I especially tend not to like ones that use a lighter teas as base, yet I really enjoyed this one.
