peachIn the famous poem 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock', T.S. Eliot wrote, 'Do I dare to eat a peach?' The literary-minded folks at Adagio have taken it upon themselves to provide Mr. Eliot with an answer: why not just steep a cup of our bright Ceylon black tea flavored with sweet peaches? Delightful peach-nectar fragrance, lingering floral aromas as you sip, pleasant astringency and 'peach fuzz' dryness. Simply peachy...
Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
ingredients & lore
blended with black tea, natural peach flavor, apricots, marigold flowers and apple pieces
Cultivation of peaches began in China as early as 2000BC. The winds of trade brought peaches to Greece and Persia, where they were instantly accepted. The juicy fruit was also a big hit with the Romans, who cultivated it throughout the empire. From Italy, peaches made the leap across the Atlantic, where early settlers planted them throughout the East Coast. Soon they were so plentiful, local botanists thought of them as native fruits.
