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!).
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!
