I’m starting to feel better, and I can (mostly) smell again! This is exactly what I was looking for in a peach-ginger tea. Juicy peaches (yes, kind of like the jelly candy) that hint towards being spiked with some sort of alcohol. The ginger isn’t as strong as I was expecting, but it is there, and it imparts a warming feel. I oversteeped this time and it hasn’t become bitter, which means that the base is something I should investigate. I love me some strong black teas that don’t get bitter (it is somewhat astringent)!

I drink this in a soup bowl with 1/2-to-1 tsp of honey and a splash of soy creamer.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
