Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion Review
It Smells Like Peaches and Tastes Like It Too!
Summary : A tea for peach lovers. Period. Light tasting, yet pleasant, with a rather lengthy, if weak, after-taste.
Review : I'll be blunt. I've been rather disappointed in teas from Celestial Seasonings. They are suppose to be a "premium bagged tea", but, in all honesty, the teas I've tried can't hold a candle to the good bagged teas from Tazo. And of course they almost always fall short in flavor when compared to bagged teas, but that is another story.
And so it was with a heavy heart that I worked up the motivation to try the Country Peach Passion herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings.
Yet, I do like peaches. OK. They aren't my favorite fruit in the galaxy, but they aren't too shabby either.
And so, to be fair and honest to this tea, I did a Zen moment and erased all positive and negative emotions I possessed about Celestial Seasonings and gave this tea a try.
The Country Peach Passion herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings contains the following ingredients : Rosehips, hibiscus, orange peel, roasted chicory root, chamomile flowers, blackberry leaves, natural peach flavor with other natural flavors, natural passion fruit flavor, peaches, and citric acid.
I'm quite glad I did this "Zen" moment as it was worth the hassle to approach this tea with an open mind. Right out of the bag, this tea did indeed smell just like peaches. Yeah, it wasn't the strongest smell in the world, but for a bagged tea, it wasn't too shabby either. The aroma of peaches even became stronger during the brewing process too, always a good sign.
This all begs the question, of course, how did this tea taste? Well, how about peaches for starters? And really, I would have been real disappointed if it didn't after looking over the rather lengthy list of ingredients that goes into this tea.
And even better, while this tea tasted of peaches, it was a good taste. Not some raw, bitter thing that also happened to have a "peach taste." All in all, this tea was, well, refreshing and tasty and light all at the same time.
The after-taste of this tea was fleeting weak, but did linger around, though. This isn't horribly surprising I guess, as peaches aren't the worlds strongest fruit to begin with. Plus, being a bagged tea, this tea just isn't going to have the flavor "pop" that a similar loose-leaf tea will provide. Still, the lack of a strong after-taste aside, this was an enjoyable tea and one of the few teas from Celestial Seasonings that didn't find the drain in my kitchen sink.
Recommendation : Yes. If you like peaches, odds are, you'll like this tea. There are loose-leaf teas that have more powerful tastes, but that can be a curse or a blessing, depending on your own taste buds and mood at the time. And while the after-taste doesn't isn't that strong, it does tend to linger, and what after-taste there is does taste good.
