I ordered this tea because I am still looking for a perfect combination of peach flavour and green tea (or oolong) and because the company stresses on their webpage under this tea specifically that they use “certified organic essential oils and natural flavourings”. As peach or apricot flavour in teas would usually involve (chemical) flavour enhancers, this tea seemed an exception. I ordered it from Golden Teahouse (a Canadian company) but on the bag that arrived, it says “Anjing. anjingteas.com”, so I do not know who actually produced it. And unfortunately, this tea did not live up to my expectations. I cannot say it tastes bad or smells bad and I can imagine people who could like it more than I did. The apricot pieces are clearly visible and seem genuine. But for me, there is too little apricot. The apricots are somehow there but this tea still tastes more of something else than what I would hope for. Or perhaps, it could be very ripe and sweet dried apricots. The taste is quite full, even rich, but it lacks the freshness and the slight, barely traceable acidity I would expect from apricots. The same goes for the smell. On the basis of this (no specifically strong apricot taste or smell) I would suppose this may be an honest green tea and apricots blend without a flavour enhancer. Overall, a mediocre tea for me, but it has its quirks and a recognisable taste.
