The flavor was weak, even after six minutes of steeping. Adding honey helped bring out the peach flavor, though the ginger was still faint. After that the flavor was acceptable, but I wouldn’t rush out to buy this tea.

This was another bagged sample obtained by my lovely wife at a high-class hotel during her business trip. I am no longer a big bag advocate but I am always more than willing to sample new tea selections.

I steeped this tea on our office Flavia coffee machine by pouring the machine’s boiling water over the bag into a paper cup. The Flavia aparatus does include a “tea” setting to do this, but the setting is no more designed for tea than it would be for instant oatmeal.

In any event, I let the bag sit in the boiling water for five minutes. The resulting color was a reddish golden brown.

As I raised the cup to my lips, I detected a peachy aroma. This made me anxious for my first taste since I rarely smell anything with brewed tea bags. However, the party ended when the flavor hit my taste buds. I did not think it was possible but the taste was actually weaker than the aroma.

The flavor was lightly peachy. The ginger was missing in action, up to about my twentieth sip. Then, I tasted the hidden ginger behind the peach attribute.

This tea does have a natural (instead of chemical) peach taste. There is no astringency to note. I would have liked it more if the flavor was bolder and the ginger was allowed to assert itself. The bag package claims that it was made from the “finest black tea leaves.” If so, let them shine, Republic of Tea! This selection had about the same amount of black tea flavor as herbal tea.

Did I hate this tea? No. Will I go out of my way to try it again? No. However, I would give it another shot if I had the opportunity to test this blend as a full loose-leaf and properly infused incarnation.

Not sure how I have failed to rate this, I honestly thought that I did…
Oh well, I enjoy this tea. I keep a tin at the office and at home.
It more or less a go-to tea when I am not sure what I want. The peach flavor is wonderful, makes me think of the peach preserves my grandmother made…the ginger is subtle, just right and there is something else in the aftertaste that is brief, can’t quite define it..maybe a minty note, maybe hibiscus…something is there though. This is a keeper.

Additional Info: I agree with Hazel, the color of the liquor is gorgeous!

Dragging my butt this morning getting up so i picked up some tea at the University Cafe. Smells really gingery, and peachy at first, but the black tea kinda takes up all of your taste buds. I think i just don’t like black tea.

With this one I found the ginger and peach come out and play more when it’s cooled/iced. We have this at work and I’ll often make it that way. Otherwise it’s more of a potporri.

Elyse

Ya i thought that. However i really needed a hot drink this morning.

This tea is so perfectly peachy! I’ve had this tea before and I was so happy when I found it hiding in one of our cupboards. It smells so good when it’s steeping and it’s nice and sweet! ♥♥

I had to be away from home for a little bit without most of my tea. I brought a couple of bags along, but ended up in the mood for something fruity.

Luckily, my favorite coffee shop came to the rescue. I am not really sure what I love about this tea. It doesn’t pack too much of a punch, but the black tea is comforting if not sharp, the ginger is present if not strong enough to make your mouth tingle, and the peach is delicious.

I’ve been drinking it hot (the a/c at the hotel was a bit overbearing; the a/c at work is the same), and tried it iced last night as well. It’s soothing and refreshing and deliciously peachy either way.

A mini-tin of this tea was bought for me as a gift and I just didn’t enjoy it. The peach was okay, but the ginger wasn’t. I’m pretty sensitive when it comes to ginger, because I just don’t like it for the most part. I tried two bags and then left the rest in the tea cabinet at work.

Ginger is a tough one sometimes. I have a hard time with ginger in teas too! I understand what you are saying totally…

silvermage2000

I have a problem with not like ginger to but,I barely steeped this and could drink it. Thanks for the review.

Alannah

Yeah, for some reason I was determined to try and like this, but I just couldn’t overcome my dislike for the strong ginger flavour! I should’ve tried barely steeping it, but it probably wouldn’t have worked out for me no matter what.

Could barely taste the peach, let alone the ginger. It’s slightly more flavourful iced, but I’m still a little disappointed.

I’m not a huge black tea fan but I loved this tea regardless. The ginger and peach blend well together and give a subtle boost for those tough mornings. I find that the ginger tastes is more pronounced than the peach flavor but it still works well. The ginger helps settle an upset stomach.

Have you tried Adagio’s? Just wondering how it compares.

airic91

I will have to give it a try. I’ve only recently gotten into tea in the last few months when I started college. I’m still experimenting.

Grabbed a bag of this at Panera. Simple and straightforward flavored black tea. More peach than ginger flavor. Great with honey. I loved the last few heavily sugared sips at the bottom of the mug.
