Taster’s Review:

I absolutely love the combination of peach and ginger.  The peppery heat from ginger pairs so well with the sweet and juicy flavor of a peach.  I really like the contrast of flavors.  So I was very excited to try this Ginger Peach tea from Octavia.

While white tea is rather delicate in flavor, here it works well.  It is a soft-tasting tea, but it has a natural honey-like sweetness that complements the ginger flavor very well.  And even though it is soft, it is not so delicate that it is indistinguishable.  I can definitely taste the sweet, fresh qualities of the white tea in my cup.

The ginger is the strongest flavor of the cup.  It offers a pleasant peppery kick – but it is a gentle, swift kick and doesn’t knock me over with its flavor.  It is a very pleasing contrast to the lusciously sweet fruit flavor.  It tastes just like a fresh, ripe peach!  YUM!

This is a tea that can be relaxing if served hot, or rejuvenating when served iced… and it is absolutely delicious whichever way you choose to serve it.  I like mine with just a tiny drizzle of honey in it (I prefer raw, locally harvested honey) to highlight the honey-esque notes of the white tea just a little.

This is also a tea that should be kept on hand at all times – as good medicine!  It is especially soothing to a sore throat or an upset stomach, and it has a mild enough flavor that kids as well as adults can enjoy it.  And, here’s another bonus:  It’s organic – another reason to feel really good about this tea.
