Without 2 teaspoons of honey, Plantation Peach by Charleston Tea Plantation tastes like a simple black tea with a very faint hint of peach. I steeped this blend for only 3 or 4 minutes which made the sip very smooth and void of any bitterness.
With 2 teaspoons of honey, Plantation Peach by Charleston Tea Plantation comes alive with the peach notes at the forefront! The sugars in the honey accentuate the peach flavor and freshens the tea. I can see myself wanting to sip this tea with 2 teaspoons of honey and chilled from here on out.
Plantation Peach makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer that zoomed by so fast. The golden hue reminds me of the sun and the peach notes makes me think of fresh summer fruits.
