Hot cuppa – even though this is part of the CS iced tea collection…
I said earlier this week that I’ve had a lot of good success lately with peach and ginger blends, and I’m including this tea in that category. It’s very juicy in terms of its peach flavour without being over the top, too sweet, or tasting artificial/like candy. It’s just natural and perfectly ripe tasting. The ginger has a hint of heat to it but is mostly warming and complimentary; something about the combo of ginger and peach gives me a Southern kind of vibe? This definitely feels like that sort of Southern “Georgia Ginger Peach” profile even though it’s named after Lisbon, haha.
One of the things I love about flavoured CS blends, too, is that as much as this is a nice and balanced ginger peach flavour it’s also a black tea and the malty sweetness and brisk, slightly astringent quality of the black tea isn’t lost either.
