Taster’s Review:

Peach is one of my favorite scents.  I just love how delicious and sweet it smells – like a warm, sunny day!  When blended with ginger, the aroma becomes even more delicious and my mouth begins to water – much like it did when I took a sniff of the dry leaf of this tea.  YUM!

This is a pleasant tasting ginger peach tea.  The ginger is strong but does not overwhelm the peach essence.  The flavor is sweet and spicy, just the way I like a ginger peach tea to be.  The black tea flavor is mellow and sort of sits in the background and lets these two flavors play on the palate, but isn’t completely absent from the cup.

One thing that caused me a bit of confusion when I first read the information about this tea is – why use apricot bits in the blend rather than peach bits?  As a tea blender, I realize that the fruity bits that are often added to a tea really have very little (to no) impact on the flavor of the tea so it really wouldn’t matter much if they used apricot or peach bits, or even apple bits or NO bits whatsoever.   That being said, why not just use peach bits?  Are they not as readily available as apricot?  But, perhaps that is the issue, maybe not that peach bits are not available, but perhaps that organic peach bits are a bit more difficult to come by than organic apricot.  I don’t know… and perhaps I shall continue to wonder…

One thing that I am not confused about is the popularity of ginger and peach as a combination when it comes to flavored teas – a lot of tea companies seem to have a ginger peach variety.  However, some of these teas are not as well balanced in flavor as is this blend.  I like that the flavors are clearly focused, that I can taste all the elements, and I also like that it is all organic ingredients.   This tea is a real winner – and while it’s tasty served hot, it’s also very refreshing as an iced tea too.
