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.
