Taster’s Review:

I really like the pairing of ginger and peach, it’s one of those wonderful, classic combinations.  This ginger peach white tea is especially nice with its addition of the orange peel – it gives the tea just a little something extra.  A nice surprise.

The white tea base is light.  Delicate.  It has a smooth, clean taste to it.  It isn’t grassy or vegetative.  It isn’t bitter or astringent.  Just beautifully soft.

To keep up with the white tea’s delicate tone, the flavoring here is also soft.  The peach note is sweet – it’s like a little kiss of peach.  Not a lot of peach, because not a lot is needed.  But, it is sweet and tastes like a ripe, juicy peach.  It melds nicely with the white tea.

The ginger – which is often a dominating spice – is rather understated here as well.  It lends a hint of peppery taste to the cup.  Just enough to keep it interesting without overthrowing the balance of flavors.

A very good ginger peach tea – delicious hot or cold.  This is a favorite tea after meals because the ginger aids in digestion and the lovely sweetness of the peach is a bit like dessert in a teacup!  Tasty!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
