I had a huge craving for Peach tea, which is odd for me because it's one of my least favorite fruits. When I stumbled upon Punchau Peach by Inca Tea, I was instantly intrigued because it said it was made with purple corn. I've never heard of tea being made with this, so I did a little reading about the company. Turns out, the guy behind Inca Tea had taken a 10-day hike on a Peruvian mountain trail with a couple of his friends (a hike that also happens to be on my bucket list). As a staple on their journey, they would make a tea with purple corn and apples that helped energize them, so this was the inspiration behind making a tea with purple corn.
Okay, so I ordered the tea and I was so upset when it arrived because it was white tea (I didn't read the description well). White tea generally gives me an instant headache. I almost didn't try the tea at all, but I'm glad I did. This tea is amazing, and surprisingly, it doesn't give me a headache. In addition to purple corn, it also contains apple, orange, hibiscus petals, and rose hip peel.
Usually I get bored with flavored teas after a few days, but that is definitely not the case here. I could drink this tea every single day. The tea is non-GMO and gluten-free.
I also appreciate that the company is Rain Forest Alliance certified. Plus, the packaging is made with recycled materials and the bags and envelopes are biodegradable.
If you are looking for a flavored tea that is absolutely delicious and healthy and made by a cool small company that cares about the environment, I highly recommend giving this tea a try.
