If i had to make a distinction, I would say that I like ‘spiced’ teas more than I like ‘fruity’ teas. In other words, if I were to choose between a ginger tea or a peach tea, my assumption would be that I would enjoy the ginger tea more.

Sense does this make, young padawan?

That being said, this tea is both good, and a disappointment. I do not taste ginger in this tea whatsoever, it really to me just tastes like a peach black tea. The peach adds a very pleasant, and slightly tart flavor over the top of the black tea (which tastes like it’s probably a ceylon, but the description doesn’t say for good). It is quite tasty, and it’s a nice flavor combination.

But waaaaaah, where is my beloved Ginger? This island just isn’t the same without her.

Me and my semi-realistic expectations aside, this is another solid offering from TropicalTeaCo, picked up during their March Madness sale. It’s still sitting on their $1/oz list as we speak, and at that price, it’s a steal. Especially if you’re on the other end of the spectrum, and are more of a fruit fan than a spice fan.

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
