Loose Leaf Peach Tea
Iced or Hot, a Sweet Classic That’s Sure to Please
You’re a Real Peach!
Peaches are a summer fruit, turning plump and juicy on the tree between June and August. Plus, nothing says summer in the South like a frosty cold glass of peach iced tea.
However, loose leaf peach tea is delicious year-round. Whether served hot or cold, the taste is sweet and refreshing!
So if someone says, “You’re a peach,” that’s quite a compliment!!
Did You Know?
- Peaches and nectarines are actually the same species! The difference is that nectarines have a recessive gene for smooth skin, while peaches have the dominant fuzzy-skin gene.
- The scientific name for peach, Prunus persica, means “Persian plum.” This is because early Europeans believed the fruit was native to Persia. However, present-day scientists now believe that peaches originated in China. Amazingly, recent evidence indicates that humans began domesticating the peach more than 7,500 years ago (Zheng, Crawford, and Chen, 2014).
- Furthermore, peaches are in the same scientific genus (Prunus) as cherries, apricots, plums, and almonds. All those listed also belong in the rose family!
