The bottom line is that peach is here.  I tried the peach tea last year, and totally loved it.  It’s delicious.  Last year’s Iced Peach Green Tea test was primarily in areas of Texas, as well as a few other cities too.

This year’s test (as far as I can tell), appears to be in the greater Denver area, as well as Baltimore.  I have heard a rumor that the Sacramento area has the peach tea, and a few other cities.   (I’ve heard Minneapolis, Austin, and San Diego are included in this round of testing – I hope you’ll let me know in the comments if I have got this right.)  Please let me know if you’ve tried it!  If you missed last year’s article on the Starbucks Peach Green Tea, here it is.

If I haven’t been clear, I am totally ready for Starbucks to launch this nationally.  Delish.

How about you?
