Too much Ginger bite hot. Really awesome peach flavor iced. Like this more than RoT’s black tea version.

“Been drinking this iced for a while now. It's all right. Like most other people, not getting much peach out of it, but eh.” Read full tasting note
A delicious blend of green tea, juicy peach and sharp ginger with a touch of matcha, the Japanese tea ceremony tea. Matcha is similar to Gyokuro green tea in that it is an early season, high grade, shade-grown tea. After steaming, the tea leaf is finely ground to produce a light and fine green powder.

Kinda an odd day. Trying to finish a gazillion and one things with a deadline of today minus my main work computer because the screen went out. Got to get websites up, finish monthly school newsletter, and record class podcasts. Yikes.
Also, it is snowing and somehow I managed to not die on the way to work, but will have to cross my fingers the same thing happens on the way home. I’ve been here several hours already and am just now having my 1st cup of the day. And I just feel off. Ever have days like that?
Compared to my usual teas with ginger (Republic of Tea Ginger Peach Black and Teavana Ginger Peach Apricot), this one packs some real ginger burn, rather than the milder ginger taste I usually associate with ginger peach teas.
It was good, but I think my usual brew time of 5 minutes was a bit stiff for this tea -the ginger overshadowed the peach. Some honey helped the peach out, but I think I’ll shoot for 3 or 4 minutes next time.
This is a tea of two halves. Brewed for 1min 30 sec, it’s a cuppa fiery, gingery warmth that would be perfect when you’ve just come in from the cold, with a light peach midway through the sip – no matcha at all. Brewed for 4mins, it’s a smoother, ginger-tinged green with definite, woody/sharp undertones of matcha, but the peach is AWOL.
Too bad you don’t really get all the elements together (ginger/peach/green/matcha) as this was what convinced me to pick this tea up, but this is a good late-night sipper for me, especially as we move more into summer.
Well, having just left a scathing review about Art of Tea’s Purple Oolong (which I do indeed feel badly about, and can ANYONE tell me how to use the rating scale. You see time come up on the steeping time scale, but no numbers come up when I rate the tea and I always come up with some very bizarre number!) I tossed the latter and made a pot of this Ginger Peach Green Tea from Stash. Ah, now that’s better. Not my favorite to be sure but a gentle, soothing tea. I’m with others here when they write — and this is a mystery to me — that when you sniff the leaves in the bag you really smell a lovely peach, and I smell it when I am sniffing the brewed tea in the cup, but it just tastes like a ginger tea to me. Now, I happen to really like ginger and ginger teas so I don’t mind but I love peach teas and that’s why I bought this because I love both of the flavors and thought they would be wonderful together but I don’t taste a pinch of peach. It is a nice tea however, though I don’t think I’d buy it again. There are other really nice peach greens and oolongs out there…
I think the key is not to steep this tea for too long. At 3.5 minutes the ginger is at just the right strength although I do wish that the peach flavour was stronger, although it’s still detectable. It does taste a bit on the astringent side today for some reason.
This is my last bag of this (it was part of a green tea sampler) but I’d buy this tea again.
