drank Peach Ginger by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Just had a cup of this. I steeped it for the correct amount of time today. I did forget about it for a little while though so it was a little cooler then I would have like when I drank it, but it was still good. Definitely less bitter than my last cup. I think I like other peach ginger teas better though. I wish it was as peachy as it smells and I wish there was overall more ginger. I do think that icing this might bring out the flavors a bit.

Caitlin

Backlogging from last night. I love this tea! It is my favorite of the zhena’s gypsy teas so far. It is so creamy and warmly spicy and just deliciously sweet! It tastes almost gooey like a fresh baked good :)

Backlogging this from yesterday morning. I was pretty yummy has a really strong raspberry smell! It is not really strong on the earl grey scent or flavor. It is more like a raspberry black tea with just a hint of earl grey in the background. I quite enjoyed it though!!!!

Oh yum!

Caitlin

I love the idea of this – earl grey with a twist :)

Cofftea

Maybe even w/ cream:)

Caitlin

Mmm – that does sound good – unfortunately I only have smart balance 1% – haha

Cofftea

Oh I meant a cream flavored tea.

Cofftea

You’re the only other person I’ve seen mention Smart Balance here! =D

Caitlin

Ah – that sounds even better & thats funny

This smells so deliciously juicy – it is just begging to be iced!! I had it hot this morning however and I accidentally oversteeped it a bit. It was still peachy and gingery but it was a bit bitter. Not undrinkable. I am sure it will be divine when i actually steep it correctly.

I need a little mood elevator this afternoon and this seemed just the thing. It seems absolutely delicious in the bag. It’s even more fragrant as it steeps. It’s smells sweet and creamy and spicy. It smells a bit like vanilla chai from bigelow which I really enjoy. It tastes just as good as it’s smells. It tastes, creamy and spicy with hints of coconut/vanilla. It tastes a bit like art of teas Earl grey creme but with spices instead of bergamot. Definitely will enjoy the rest of this tea.

I had this tea this morning. I was in a chai mood. It wasn’t the strongest chai I have ever had, but it was certainly good. It’s yummy and spicy and a good way to start the morning.

I just had the diet version of this as a pick me up before my next class. It is not very tea-y, but it works.

Cofftea

I agree, tea flavored sugar:) I wish the citrus would be stronger.

Caitlin

Haha – yeah at least in this case it was tea flavored fake sugar so it was minus the calories – haha & yeah more citrus would be nice

This was a much needed boost to start a very long day that is not yet over. It was also the first time I used my new mighty leaf to go mug. This tea was quite delicous! It smelled very inviting and fruity in the bag. I burned my tongue like three times trying to drink it too fast. It tasted very oolongy with a hint of fruity. A nice treat for the morning. The mug worked well too the outside stayed cool which was important in today’s ridiculous heat and it kept my tea hot all the way through my first class. Looking forward to another relaxing cup of tea to wind down tonight.

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
