From Twinings

The inspiration behind this blend… Gingersnaps are anything but snappy; they are somewhat spicy with a hint of sweetness. To create this wonderful blend, we’ve combined ginger’s warming flavour with the juicy round fruit of peach, once traded with sumptuous fabrics and spices along the Silk Road in China. This gives a zingy, sweet, refreshing infusion, which takes you from the Mediterranean, to the East in just one sip.

In this delicately warming fusion we have blended the round juicy fruit of peach with spicy notes of ginger.

The taste of ginger is not only reviving but useful to aid digestion-making this a perfect after-dinner drink.

I have to admit that, at first, I didn’t like this tea. It’s grown on me, though. I still don’t know whether I’m honestly getting gingersnaps when I drink it, but my initial reaction of dislike has changed to one of appreciation.

I find this a very warming tea. Ginger isn’t the dominant flavour, as I perhaps expected, but you can definetly feel the heat from the spice at the back of your throat as you drink it. It’s not overpoweringly spicy from the off, either — rather, the flavour develops with each successive sip. As it cools, I find the peach flavour comes through more, which is actually quite pleasant. I wasn’t sold on the ginger-peach combination at first. As I said, though, I’ve found this to be a grower.

This is a “whole-leaf” tea, and the bag contains a generous amount of identifiable Hibiscus, Rosehip, Apple, Orange Peel, Peach, and Ginger pieces. The reason I wasn’t keen on this tea to begin with was because it is relatively tart, with a noticably sour aftertaste. I suspect these flavours emnate from the Hibiscus and the Rosehip, and I’m beginning to see what they contribute to the overall flavour.

In the cup, this tea produces a medium red-orange liquor. It smells more of the aforementioned peach that it does of ginger, but you can detect a spicyness in the background.

Overall, this tea provides more or less what it says it will. I’ve never come across peach flavoured gingersnap biscuit before, but if there was such a thing, I imagine it would taste approximately like this tea.
