Literary Gifts, Gone With the Wind Peach Oolong Blend Tea Canister of 12 Tea Sachets
This lovely Peach Oolong is made with the darker, more oxidized oolongs of Taiwan that are known for having lush, playful flavors. Deeply floral, honey and juicy, it's not uncommon to have a lovely cup that's almost like a succulent slice of peach. Why not let the tea play with some actual peaches? Fragrant and sweet like a perfectly ripe fruit, with a smooth astringency and lingering floral aroma.
A highly oxidized Taiwan oolong asserts itself when blended with the intensely floral, juicy summer peach. The result is a smooth cup with a whisper of astringency, and a lingering floral aroma and aftertaste. China first began to grow them in 2000 BC and archeologists have peach seed fossils in northwest China that date back to 6000 BC. Like so many of the world’s wonders, the China peach traveled the trader’s Silk Road eventually finding a home in the Mediterranean and Europe before taking the leap, okay the boat, to Virginia where a farmer planted the first peach tree. Lucky us.
