I got this tea in my very first Sips by box. For those of you not familiar, Sips by is a relatively new tea subscription service that matches you with 4 teas to try every month. So far, I love it! I was excited about all 4 picks they sent.
Now. I don’t drink a lot of instant teas. I’m definitely a loose leaf kind of girl. But this had attractive packaging and the price on the website suggested it was higher quality. As I poured it into my cup, I found that it looked just like ground cinnamon. It smelled fruity and realistic, kind of like how a peach smells before you bite into it.
It dissolved super easily. I used all 4 packs they gave me in a 24 ounce tumbler. After ice and some stirring, it came out to a kinda scary black coffee color. However, the flavor is surprisingly mild. Ginger is the main thing I taste, with a kind of disappointingly dull peach flavor. Hmm. It’s like a fruity, uncarbonated ginger ale. There is no ginger burn at all.
While I’m not really impressed, I should note that there is no grit left over on the bottom. Also, this packs quite the caffeine punch. I am having trouble sitting still, that’s for sure.
Flavors: Ginger, Peach
