Iced peach tea gets a huge thumbs up from me!

Advantages: Great quality, healthy, fresh flavoured drink
Disadvantages: Isn't as heavily flavoured as you'd imagine maybe?
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.
Summary: A great summery feeling drink!
