The liqueur looked so good when I brewed it…I really looked forward to some good black tea. And i needed the ginger punch today. Has anyone seen how nasty the weather in NY is?

Well, The black tea was not very brisk :( and I think they forgot the ginger. But the peach flavor was refreshing so overall it worked for me…

Can anyone recommend some good tea with ginger peachness?

Sad to hear you didn’t care for it is much, I enjoy this one. I admit though, I like this mostly for the peach, rather than the ginger. They have a green ginger peach I am wondering about…

Hazel

:) You should let me know how that one goes!

teawing

I sure will!

Stepped outside without looking at the weather first. Big mistake :(

Finally was able to try a cup of this today. Didn’t need to add anything to it- no bitterness, just ginger peachy goodness with a good tea flavor. Going to buy a tin tomorrow. This will become a regular tea. It’s nice to find a black tea that can be so refreshing!

I remember reading you post that you wanted to try this. =) I’m glad you found another one that you enjoy.

rabbysmom

Thanks- me too. Hate that I had to drive all the way to Books A Million to try it! Wish they served this at other places besides their Joe Muggs, but oh well.

This is one of my favs:)

I like peach tea on general principles. Sometimes I buy it bottled or canned to drink on the go and I found that the plain peach fruit tea from Celestial Seasonings goes great with black tea, so I used them in combination for some time. Then I ran out and kept forgetting to replace it, so when I saw Republic of Tea’s Ginger peach tea, I decided I might as well commit and buy the combination rather than the separate elements.

Upon opening the tin, I breathed in the lovely scent and thought I’d made a good decision. I brewed it up hot and took that first sip thinking, ‘Ginger and peach…what’s not to like?’ By the second sip, I was thinking this was neither as peachy nor as tea-y as it ought to be. And where was the ginger?

Over all, it seemed kind of watered down. To my surprise, sweetening this didn’t help a bit. Perhaps a longer steeping or an additional teabag might do the trick but perhaps not…it left an odd, astringent aftertaste in my mouth.

I’m really very disappointed and am glad I only bought the sampler size rather than hocking my valuables to invest in a full sized tin.

I’ve only ever brewed this one as an iced tea, which I enjoy unsweet.

Congratulations! I am still working on getting rid of my bad habit. Finding things that are good iced/cold is probably where I’ll end up too. One thing I like cold is Stash’s (Organic) Vanilla Honeybush, which I found at Giant Eagle (Kroger/Walmart here doesn’t have it, but maybe some other grocer down that way might…is there a Whole Foods that you can get to?). There are other brands (including Adagio and Upton, if you’re getting other samples). p.s. see my note on your Earl Grey Creme Vanilla tasting note.

Had some of this at my @Cantowrimo meeting today. Solid flavored tea, at least for a bagged tea. :) This is my default hot beverage when I visit Panera Bread since their selection isn’t fantastic. It’s not bad, like the peach flavor, and I prefer my fruity teas with a black tea base, so this is the best fit when I’m in a pinch and only have Republic of Tea available. ;)

Brewed up a large glass of this iced using 2 tea bags at work this afternoon. I found the ginger to be a tad strong for my liking, but it makes a refreshing iced cup. I thought the peach flavor was pretty noticeable, so it gets a few more points for good peachy ness.

2nd tea testing today! lol. I got this along with the Twinings Pumpkin Chai.

1st smell: Peach! Some tanginess which I assume is the ginger.
1st taste: Again peach. I had to add plenty of sugar, and even then this tea is quite dry. It isn’t bad and a fair tea to have on hand. I think I might make a few pitchers of ice tea with this, so I will use up more….I am afraid I won’t drink enough of it before it gets stale. I wish ROT had smaller canisters of like 25, I know they do of some flavors, and I wish it were possible to buy them in the stores, or at least the stores that I frequent.

I used to go through tons of this tea, in the summer especially! I loved this iced forever, but I’m not as into it as I used to be. I don’t know if the tea changed somehow, or if it is me, but I’m no longer enamored. However, it does still make a decent iced tea, & was the perfect refreshment this afternoon while toiling in the garden.
AND it’s a sipdown! 394 :)

Decent. Enjoyable. Gets bitter easily though.

The Plantation Peach from Charleston Tea Co. blows this tea out of the water! That’s a loose tea though. Goes great with Hob Nobs in the middle of the afternoon. :) :) :)

Oh wow, can’t believe our local tea co has made it all the way up to by you. CTC gets their tea from the only working tea plantation in the country.

Oh Cha!

My friends went to Charleston, and brought back that tea to me as a gift. I was so impressed with it… I would love to see that plantation sometime. :)
