Peach is one of my favorite scents. I just love how delicious and sweet it smells – like a warm, sunny day! When blended with ginger, the aroma becomes even more delicious and my mouth begins to water – much like it did when I took a sniff of the dry leaf of this tea. YUM!
This is a pleasant tasting ginger peach tea. The ginger is strong but does not overwhelm the peach essence. The flavor is sweet and spicy, just the way I like a ginger peach tea to be. The black tea flavor is mellow and sort of sits in the background and lets these two flavors play on the palate, but isn’t completely absent from the cup.
One thing that caused me a bit of confusion when I first read the information about this tea is – why use apricot bits in the blend rather than peach bits? As a tea blender, I realize that the fruity bits that are often added to a tea really have very little (to no) impact on the flavor of the tea so it really wouldn’t matter much if they used apricot or peach bits, or even apple bits or NO bits whatsoever. That being said, why not just use peach bits? Are they not as readily available as apricot? But, perhaps that is the issue, maybe not that peach bits are not available, but perhaps that organic peach bits are a bit more difficult to come by than organic apricot. I don’t know… and perhaps I shall continue to wonder…
One thing that I am not confused about is the popularity of ginger and peach as a combination when it comes to flavored teas – a lot of tea companies seem to have a ginger peach variety. However, some of these teas are not as well balanced in flavor as is this blend. I like that the flavors are clearly focused, that I can taste all the elements, and I also like that it is all organic ingredients. This tea is a real winner – and while it’s tasty served hot, it’s also very refreshing as an iced tea too.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
