From Joy's Teaspoon

We have combined the invigorating spiciness of ginger with the tempting sweetness of ripe peaches to form this highly promising tea. Definitely worth a try for those who always thought ginger a bit too heavy for their liking. This tea will surely change your mind.

This tea is everything I want in a ginger tea. From my first whiff the ginger convinced me I had to try it, but it was the mysterious peach undertones that kept me transfixed.

I forgot to make note of my steeping time because cleaning up the dishes from dinner distracted me….so I’m sure it was well over 8 minutes. However, when I returned to my tea I was delighted to see that the leaves had all unfurled along with a little white flower that looked a little like a miniature dandelion (I’m guessing it’s one of the marigold blossoms). It was quite unexpected, but really fun.

I’m somewhat new to the loose leaf tea experience and the only peach ginger tea I’ve had was my standby Celestial Seasonings. Let me tell you, this Jinja Momo a world apart from that!! Instead of being hit full force with ginger, the ginger in the Jinja Momo slowly snuggles up to you. It’s like the difference between an awkward prom date aggressively rushing the romance versus a smooth talking player whispering sweet nothings in your ear.

The deliciously subtle ginger flavor is paired beautifully with the peach. Since I’m not really that experienced at tea tasting I had trouble figuring out that it was in fact peach I was tasting; I almost thought it tasted a little like anise, but I knew that couldn’t be right. However, when you smell the brewed tea it’s mostly peach with just a hint of ginger you smell. And now that I know it’s peach I can’t imagine why I thought it was anything else.

The chamomile quietly works its magic in the background sort of pulling everything together and making this feel like a very distinguished and refined ginger tea.

Overall I’m very pleased and I know I’ll be having more of this delightful ginger peach green tea.
