Zing Me Tea is my “feel-better” tea from the David’s Tea line. Bits of ginger, peach and apricot blend together creating a complexly flavoured cup. The soft ginger spice brings a warmth to the lusciously soft yet deep notes of apricot and peach. The delicate flavours are perfectly balanced, and no one flavour note overpowers the other.
I find that steep time for this tea is critical. If steeped for too long, the ginger’s spice and the black tea’s astringency overpower the softer fruity notes. Likewise, when under-steeped, the flavours do not have enough time to develop and the flavour seems a little hollow. Just a hair over 4 minutes is all this tea needs to develop properly.
