Nothing goes better with a BBQ than a glass of iced Ginger Peach White Tea. Cool and refreshing, bursting with sweet peaches and balanced with a gentle spicy ginger twist, this tea will quench your thirst in the summer heat while soothing your full belly. No summer meal is complete without a jug of sweet ginger peach white tea on the table; we like to sweeten it with a hint of agave after it steeps. You can also enjoy this tea hot when the night falls and the evening cools. Paired with some ginger snap cookies, this low caffeine white tea makes the perfect bedtime snack.
INGREDIENTS: Pai Mu Tan White Peony tea, diced peaches, orange peel, ginger, and marigold petals, with peach and orange flavoring.
I’ve tried quite a few ginger peach flavored teas, and for the most part, enjoyed them. But, I can’t remember enjoying one more than I am this Ginger Peach White Tea from Ovation Teas. It is balanced so nicely.
The white tea base (Pai Mu Tan) is – not surprisingly – a very gentle flavor. It is fresh and a bit like a breath of fresh air. It would be easy to overwhelm the white tea with the flavors of ginger, peach and orange, but fortunately, this blend has been skillfully blended with a delicate touch of flavoring to maintain a sense of balance.
The peach and orange work very well together. The peach is sweet, the orange tangy, and with the peppery heat from the ginger and the soft whisper of white tea, it becomes a lovely contrast of flavors.
I love this tea iced! It is so light and delicious.
