Apricot teas are, most often, barely worth the time they take to brew in my opinion. The vast majority of the apricot (and peach) teas that I have tried come across as watered-down, muted impersonations of the fruits that inspired them. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case for this tea from Ahmad Tea.
Ahmad Tea has somehow managed to capture the essence of apricot in the form of a beautifully balanced black tea. I will say that for my sample I chose to drink it hot, but the manufacturer recommends trying it iced. I 100% believe that this would make an excellent iced tea, especially if you threw some peach slices on top. Unfortunately, I received it in the dead of winter, so iced is pretty much out of the question. I may have to buy a box in the summertime to try it out!
Over the last few months, I’ve found myself steering more and more towards loose-leaf teas. For some reason, they always seem to be better quality with more flavor and body. This particular tea isn’t available as a loose-leaf tea, but it’s still an excellent tea!
