This was sent to me as a free random sample from Teaves Tea Company. Thanks!

I tried this once awhile ago, and didn’t like it, so I put it away for a time when I’d be able to give it my full attention.

The leaves are pretty. Strands of what look like calendula run through the black leaves, and there are big hunks of ginger. I smell a strong scent of ginger.

Unfortunately, when I brew it, that’s about all I taste. It tastes like a black ginger tea, not like a ginger peach tea. There’s something sharp about it, and I wonder if the black tea is a bit of a cheaper quality. It reminds me a bit of an Adagio style blend.

It’s okay. I’ll definitely drink it, and I feel bad leaving a “meh” review as the first review on a tea, but what can you do.

Edit: Much less harsh on resteep. A bit peachier, but mainly just less astringent.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec
