Another peach tea! I love fruit flavours and Janat peach tea has an abundance of those. I’m really impressed with this simple fruity tea. If you’ve been following my tea reviews on the blog, you’ll know that I reviewed Janat Paris strawberry tea a few weeks ago… and it was okay.
So, I went into this tea review hoping that the peach flavoured black tea would be even better. Thankfully, it was.
Below you’ll find my tasting notes for this tea, my preferred brewing method, and a link to buy it online if you want to try it for yourself.
Janat Peach Tea at a Glance
- Blend: Black tea with peach flavouring
- Flavour: Strong black tea with sweetly sour peach candies
This is a really tasty tea. The peach flavouring is like a sour peach candy and the black tea is bold and strong. You’ll find it a bit too audacious for an afternoon tea, but just right as a dessert tea instead.

Ripping open the tea bag wrapper, the peach aroma hits you first. Wow! It’s amazing. If you’ve ever had those sour tangfastics, it’s kind of like that. The peach is sweet and sour, so it’s almost savoury. The black tea isn’t shy either, with bold notes already popping up here and there. It’s a great start!
It brews into a very dark tea colour, so you’re best opting for shorter brew times. Even with a 2-minute brew, the peach is very strong in the aroma of the wet tea.
It reminds me of dried peaches, or sticky apricots, with black tea tannins mixed in nicely. The flavour matches. It’s very yummy. The black tea is strong, but I didn’t add milk. The mouthfeel is quite watery, but it also has a drying affect that builds in the aftertaste.
Overall, it leaves you feeling warm and satisfied.
How to Brew Sour Peach Tea
Use boiling water, but don’t pour it over the teabag. Instead, place the Janat Peach Tea bag in after you’ve poured the water. Then let it brew for roughly 2 minutes. I wouldn’t advise brewing for more than 3 minutes.
I use one tea bag for 250ml of water, which is the size of a large teacup or small mug. If you want to brew a pot of tea, use one teabag per person, plus one for the pot.
Don’t add milk! If you want a little extra sweetness, however, I recommend sugar or honey.
Why Janat Paris Provence Tea Range?
Janat peach tea is part of the Provence tea range, which brings you a range of flavours from the south of France, with hearty black tea bases. I’ve got the collection box which contains 4 different flavours.
Janat use peach flavouring rather than dried peach fruit pieces, but that’s not such a bad thing when the flavouring is so tasty. I really enjoyed the peachy flavour.
As for the tea quality, it’s CTC which isn’t amazing. I wish this tea was available as a high-quality loose leaf blend instead. But for now, we’ll all have to make do with the teabag version of Janat Peach Black Tea.
This is a lovely tea that I highly recommend. At the time of tasting and reviewing this tea, I can’t find it available to buy online. The best place to check is Amazon. Sometimes you can find this tea in TK-Maxx as well. Otherwise, have a look at Janat Paris’ official website to learn more about their range of teas.
I have a lot of fruit teas in my review collection because I just love buying and tasting them. So, if you want something fruity, go to my Tea Review Index and use the ingredients list to find fruit-containing teas to try next. I guarantee you’ll find a new tea to fall in love with.
