This tea has a lovely nose, full of gentle tartness from the lemon and spicey black pepper. On the palette even over-steeped it was never harsh, simply more potent. The flavors blend exceptionally well, a new favorite cuppa when my throat and sinuses are feeling sad.

Liking this tea a little more today – didn’t steep it quite as long. The peach is coming out more, especially on the nose.

This tea is pretty solid, but I’m not sure it can replace my morning staple: Zen Tara Tea’s Black Currant. I’m getting a lot more ginger than peach, but I may have oversteeped it a bit. Will try steeping for 3 minutes next time.

This tea was EXACTLY what I was in the mood for. Something with a strong fruit overtone, but with the warmth and gentle spice of a ginger infusion. Unlike some other herbal blends I’ve sampled, even steeped for the full 5 minutes the ginger didn’t become overpowering. A perfect cup for those blustery fall and winter mornings, would be EXCELLENT with toast and jam :)

only one or two more cups of this stuff left, going to try switching over to Ginger & Peach black tea from Zen Tara – hopefully it will be equally as awesome!

Surprisingly light for a Keemun. Slightly smokey with roasted chestnuts in the aftertaste.

An instant classic. As with many of Zen Tara’s blends, the nose has a prominant ‘candy’ note, which mellows in steeping. There is still definitely an overtone of cherry jolly rancher, but it is subdued and blends gently into the white tea. An office favorite here at MetaSpring!
