“ Brand: Twinings / Type: Fruit Tea „
I am a very huge tea drinker. Although I am aware of how good tea can be for us I am aware as well that I consume too much caffeine through my love of tea and coffee and although I have tried to use decaffeinated products I tend to favour them I have found!
I am not a fruit, herby tea sort of fan either however I spotted a box of these in my local B & M store costing me only 39p for a box of 20 of the bags and I for that price thought that I owed it to myself to try them! I couldn't believe such a well known brand for so many of the bags was so cheap!
The bags come in a white and pink coloured box and on the front of it we are clearly told what they are and who they by and there is a photograph of a peach drink on there then on the back of the box other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, how to make it up and so on and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nice box this is and inside the bags are individually wrapped in paper sachets where again we are clearly told on the what they are and on the back a reminder of how to use them.
To be clear these are not to be used with hot water and are meant to make a cold peach tea, Twinings do make other styles of tea bags of course and this peach flavour is also available from them to be used with hot water if you prefer....so news was to me that we have a choice!
To use these you can use 4 bags and add 1 Litre of room temperature water or use one in a glass and add up to 200ml of room temperature water.....the choice is yours once again. You can use tap water or bottled, sparkling and/or still...me I use boiled water cooled down usually.
This 'brews' in about 4-5 minutes turning the water a rich murky orangy colour and still transparent. It has a massive natural aroma of peaches to it though to me isn't as highly flavoured as the aroma it creates suggests. It has a lovely quality tea flavour to it with a subtle flavour of peaches to it, again flavoured really naturally and not one bit sweetened....of course you can sweeten it if you want to but I like this clear, crisp drink the way it comes and that way it contains no calories somehow according to the packaging though nutritional advice isn't given.
I find this refreshing and really pleasant to drink. I will happily buy more of these on offer or not as I think they make a lovely alternative to juice and tea and the likes and I feel very grown up too with this in a tall glass served over ice!
Available in all good supermarkets and the likes priced usually at about £2.00 for a 20 bag box.
Twining peach tea is one the lightest and most refreshing teas that I have had. The colour of this tea is a warm yellow. I am trying to avoid the word peachy but that is exactly what colour it is! The scent of peach is really strong but perhaps not as strong as many fruit teas smell. The flavour is as light and robust as the fragrance.
My mug of peach tea went cold because I was busy and became distracted. I had it cold to save wasting it and it was delicious. I will definitely try this again cold with ice.
This tastes a little like fizzy peach water but not as synthetic. It is slightly less perfumed but just as peachy!
This is one of my all time favourite teas and Twinings quality is evident in every mouthful. I would not buy another brand after trying this.
I bought a box recently for just under two pound for 20 tea bags but I think you can get them cheaper. I was just impatient. It is such good tea, I did not want to wait!
I would highly recommend this light tea, especially when you feel hungover! It really lifts you up!
I'm a great fan of fruity teas, but I've never found a peach tea that I like. I love peaches, and the smell of peach tea is absolutely lovely, but it looks disgusting and brown, and tastes nothing like peaches. Added to this, the taste, I found, isn't even fruity. There's a strong taste of tannin, the stuff that makes the funny scum on top of normal tea if you leave the bag in for too long, and it's just not nice. All in all, there's very little more for me to say. I think it's a shame that something that smells so nice tastes and looks so yucky. Perhaps it's best to stick to teas that are made from seeds and pips from various fruits. It's hard to do that with peaches. Definitely not recommended!
Character: Originating from China, this fruit finally reached Europe by way of armies Alexander the Great. It is now widely cultivated around the globe in hundreds of varieties. Twinings Peach Tea is a delicate, mildly perfumed blend. How and when to serve: Brew as you would one of Twinings Classic teas and enjoy at any time of the day, either hot or iced to suit the occasion.
