Dug a bag of this out of the Mystery Box of tea on our counter, I don’t know from whence it came, but I was craving something for headache-busting and the ginger sounded good.

This started off as a surprisingly tasty, robust tea. The eponymous ginger and peach balanced each other out for a taste that wasn’t too spicy or wasn’t too sweet. I probably could have steeped it for a little longer to bring out more of the flavour, but I read the bag of the packet as it was brewing and I discovered that there was hibiscus in it, and hibiscus steeped too long becomes the Day of the Triffids of tea.

Unfortunately, as it cooled, the Triffids had their day. The more I drank it, the more I got a back-hint of hibiscus and rubber balloon. Don’t think I’d go for this one again, even though it started out so promising.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
