Peach is one of those flavors that most RTD teas include, but few actually do justice to. Fortunately, Bombilla Gourd has done a fairly good job, using a peach flavor that has a very nice aroma and the "fuzzy" taste that we look for from peach flavors. Aside from that, this is a well done blend of tea, plain and simple. The mild blend of yerba mate is pleasing to the palate, and the health-conscious consumer will love that its easy on the calories. Packaging is well done, with the orange and green label looking the best of the ones we sampled, as the white logo "pops" better on a darker background than it does on the yellow of the lemon flavor. Overall, this is a nicely executed entry into the premium RTD tea category.
