This is the only Ginger Peach blend I have found that I like.
This is the only Ginger Peach blend I have found that I like.
I tried a sample of this tea today at World Market. I got excited because a) tea and b) I would get to write more for Steepster! Is that silly?
The tea was good, but a little bitter. Perhaps the bag was left in too long. Usually I don’t like fruity teas, but this one worked for me. Not to the point that I bought a container, mind you. The black tea gave me a big kick of caffeine, even from a small cup. I could not detect ginger in this tea, which is a little odd since it is the first word in the name!
I brewed this in my Libre tea thermos using one teabag and it was a bit weak, so next time I will follow the advice of some of the other reviewers and use two bags. The ginger peach combination is refreshing and pleasant. It seems as though it would be a lovely iced tea in warmer weather. This tea seemed to need more body, which maybe will improve when I use two bags. Typically I prefer a fuller bodied tea. It provided me with a nice afternoon drink which made my work more pleasant. Although given the choice between this tea and nice jasmine, I would usually pick the jasmine for my afternoon tea.
The smell is incredibly endorphin producing. The taste is even better. The ginger and peach notes were incredibly satisfying. I see why this is a popular tea.
Round, no-string bag. Appearance: small CTC. Liquor: lighter brown red. Smell: fragrant, peach and citrus notes predominate. Taste: peach and citrus flavors predominate, with some noticeable ginger. The black tea is present, but the sharp notes are subsumed by the flavoring. Passable without milk or sugar, but becomes more tart as tea cools. A small amount of sugar helps this tea, by bringing out the ginger notes. This also has the effect, though, of reducing the “tea” flavor. 4/10.
I picked up a 6 bag “Traveler’s Tea Tin” of this.
Very fragrant tea. I can taste the peach, but I’m not getting a lot of the ginger. I suspect it might come out more when iced, but I was expecting a bit of a bite from it, and it’s just not there.
Not a bad tea, but not one I think I’ll consiously want again – I’ll just use these up and reuse the cute little travel tin for loose tea, if I feel like it won’t open on it’s own.
Finished up my Traveler’s Tin today by brewing the last 2 bags at one time (a good tip from the first tasting note on this tea’s page. It makes it tolerable. I just didn’t like it brewed with one bag.
Drinking iced from my Lock & Lock bottle.
And the good part is that I now have the cute little travel tin to reuse. I was able to peel the labels off pretty cleanly, and I think some rubbing alcohol might clean the little bit of goo that’s left so I can make my own labels for it, and try carrying some loose tea in it. Might have to air out a bit first – the tin smells of ginger, which is odd since I could never detect it in the brewed tea!
Trying this again as an iced tea.
I just don’t like it as much as the Peach Ginger from Zhena’s Gypsy Tea. Its not as pleasant. I think it’s the tea base that does it for me.
I have 3 bags left, I might try brewing two bags at once for the next batch, and to use it up faster.
As I suspected, this was much better as an iced tea. This gives me a reason to use up the other teabags in the “Traveler’s Tin” I got.
I love this tea. I remember discovering it at the Joseph Beth cafe during college. I love peach, and this is a nice, fruity tea that is good lightly sweetened. I think the ginger to peach ratio works really nicely. This one is good hot or cold.
Love this tea in the summer! Just need to remember that it takes less sugar than usual for this one.
One of the few blacks I’ll drink without any sweetener. Crisp, appropriately fruity, goes great with dessert. Just plain good.
Delicious with honey in the colder months and wonderful iced in the summer. One of the only black teas I can drink without milk or cream. Don’t steep it too long or it will become bitter.
Loved this! Steeped for the maximum recommended brewing time (5 min, if I recall correctly) and had just a little bit of sugar with it. I’m a sucker for peach teas, but I loved the ginger kick! Truly one of the best bagged black teas I’ve had.
An outstanding cup. The mix of peach and ginger is perfect, and the flavor of “the leaf” is sweet. The body is between light and medium. The best-seller by The Republic of Tea has an intense sweet flavor. I buy this one routinely. A great introduction to black tea.
I was interested to see how this tasted since I really enjoy RoT’s ginger peach white tea. I saw this sitting on the counter in my school’s post office with a few other teas and the women there said I could take one! The ginger is definitely much more toned down in this one, and in general I’m not really a black tea kind of girl. It’s a pleasant tea overall though!
I can definitely smell & taste the peach but the ginger doesn’t come through at all. I tried adding some cinnamon honey and the tea even swallowed up that flavor. All in all, pretty ‘meh’.
I really love this tea. Good black tea with a sweet peach taste.
I decided to leave some of the loose leaves in my cup today and have a little spontaneous tea-leaf reading. (What you’re doing while sipping the tea really effects the meaning of the reading – like this one focused a bit on the emails I had been typing while drinking the cup.) The overall reading was unexpected, but not surprising after the last couple of years. A pleasant experience, all together.
Went out to get some fresh air and it started snowing like crazy. Ended up slipping and bumping my knees, so I headed back before I really got started. On the plus side, took a travel mug of this with me and it kept me warm and toasty.
Good, well-balanced tea. Also tastes great as an iced tea for those hot days.
It’s an ok tea. The peach definitely comes out more than the black. I also think I understeeped it a little cause the tea taste is pretty weak. As a comparison, I think Stash has a stronger peach tea. This tea is enjoyable but I don’t think I would buy a can. Too bad I can’t try a longer steep time since this bag was a sample and I don’t have anymore.
I’m ok with this tea, but get cravings for it. I like the black tea base, but the ginger/peach is a bit effervescent. The scent is wonderful, though, and that’s why I usually brew this. Personally, I like tea that has more body.
Smells peachy keen!
