Peach Lift Black tea

Is there any other fruit as bright and summer-y as the peach? The juicy fruit has been celebrated the world over for its fresh, sweet flavor. Vincent VanGogh, the famous painter of old, liked them so much he featured them in some of his paintings – most notably his work Pink Peach Trees painted in 1888. The people of Georgia like them so much that they made it their state fruit and celebrate them every year at the Georgia Peach festival. This festival sees among its many attractions, the baking of the world's largest Peach Cobbler and the annual crowning of Miss Georgia Peach. (No doubt VanGogh, were he still alive, would have had her sit for a portrait!) But why the name Peach Lift? Well brew yourself a pot, pour a cup hot or over ice and we're sure you'll see what we mean!

 What type of tea do we use, how do we flavor the tea and why do we use natural flavors?

  •  We only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavored teas, but none of these teas made the grade.) Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This ‘dual peak period’ allow us to buy the best for our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.
 
  • We use flavoring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.
 
  • We specify natural flavors. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat ‘soft ‘ and the flavors slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavored teas.
