I’m not 100% sure this Ginger Peach tea is from the Republic of Tea (coworker’s partner gave about a half oz to me!) but that is what I suspect (he said it was from a widely available brand in a gourmet shop, but he couldn’t remember the name of the company! This is my best Sherlock Holmes deductive reasoning!).

ANYWAY!!!

I am very much enjoying this tea on this snowy, cold day. The sweet and spicy thing is right up my alley! I love the peach flavor (a tad fake, but that’s ok), and the hint of ginger. Even with careful brewing, it’s a tad bitter. I suspect the tea base is not all that and a bag of chips. It’s not bad enough to make me not enjoy the tea, and a half teaspoon of sugar helped smooth the rough edge a bit.

The most exciting thing to me, though, is that I discovered that I love this flavor profile! I know a few more companies make ginger peach teas, and I am going to have some fun tasting my way through them to see if they use a better tea base! I really love this combination of flavors!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
