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 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!
