A flavory and tasty combination of mellow peaches with deep full flavored apricots. Makes an absolutely tremendous iced tea.
In China, archaeologists working during the time of Chairman Mao discovered evidence of people enjoying apricots and peaches together at least 4000 years ago. From those ancient times, both fruits eventually made their way westward in the form of cuttings and seedlings, traveling via Persia to the Mediterranean regions of Italy and Spain. In Italy, both fruits flourished and rose in such popularity that they became noted favorites of various rulers of the Roman Empire.
