Gingerly Peach/Storehouse Tea. . . .

I have had a few peach teas and one or two were ginger peach varieties. Some of them slap you in the face with a powerful ripe, juicy peach flavor and then burn your tongue with ginger. Sneaky devils.

I am not the world’s biggest fan of ginger but I like it in small amounts, whether in beverages or recipes. I just don’t like for things to get too hot. (My neighbor would love a big hunk of ginger with ghost pepper sauce and eat it while it is on fire. Soooo not me.)

When I had some stomach issues I took to eating ginger candy and drinking honey with ginger, and I grew a little more used to it but still wasn’t a fan of the heat. But a sniff of the dry leaves of this organic white tea blend had me intrigued and eager to taste it. The scent was mild and smooth, and the ginger very well behaved. The peach was just a light, fruity background scent, no face slapping here. The lemon added a little sparkle. I swear I thought I even smelled a hint of vanilla. That could be coming from the jasmine and calendula.

The steeped liquor is deep golden color and good gravy what is happening to me? Ginger is the dominant flavor, but I keep going back for more. It’s not that you can’t taste the ginger. I still find it to dominate the cup. It does have a little heat, but the heat is juuuuuuust right. And the other flavors in this make a nice base for the ginger. The peach is pretty subtle compared to some I have had, but it is pairing oh so nicely with the ginger. And my dodgy tummy is enjoying this ever so much more than my former tummy rescue drink of honey crystals and ginger. Well, I guess it is my mouth enjoying it more, but my tummy is grateful!

Will it resteep? Oh joy! Joy! It does resteep…superbly! The second batch is still a nice deep golden color. The light dry briskness of the white tea, with the lemon possibly playing a part, is making me want more and more! I have already iced a glass for supper, and the taste I sneaked promises that this is good both ways!

Peach and Apricot Green Tea from Long Dog Tea Co. . . .

Peaches and apricots just scream all things happy and bright so when I was having a particularly low day the other day, this was the tea I grabbed for. And I’m so happy I did.

Peach and Apricot Green Tea is a lovely tea blend of gunpowder green tea, peach, and apricot flavorings.  First of all, this tea had me at gunpowder but with the promise of peaches and apricots, this tea was giving me those tea tingles. You know. Those tingles you get when you try a tea for the first time and you know its going to be love.

Brewed up with green tea parameters and allowed to steep for 3 minutes and cooled for another two.  Fresh fruity notes were already in the air and I couldn’t wait to see if what I was smelling would translate into the same flavor.

First sip in, you are greeted with this gorgeous lovely peach and subtle apricot flavor followed up with a sturdy familiar gunpowder green tea flavor.  Not so much the smoky tones of gunpowder tea but more or less just a there is a green tea flavor here and not in the vegetal way.  Quite simply, this tea is delicious and provides a perfect contrast without being overpower by fruity notes or the natural green tea flavor. I’m quite in love and enamored over this tea.

With the little sample I had, I was able to pull out a few infusions and was delighted.

This tea would be a perfect companion for any season and I can’t wait to gobble up more so I can enjoy a lighter tea with the onset of fall chais coming our way.  If you aren’t familiar with Long Dog Tea Co., check them out! Their logo alone makes me smile.

AMERICAN DREAM : PEACHES & CREAM from Impeach Tea. . . .

I used to think that I didn’t like black teas until I tried a peach flavored tea. Then, I fell in love with black teas, especially ones that are sweet and fruity. So, obviously when I saw this American Dream: Peaches & Cream tea, I thought that it would quickly become one of my favorites. I was right.

Dry, the leaf smells vaguely sweet. It’s nothing to write home about. Brewed up, however, it smelled just like a fresh peach. Sometimes flavored teas smell a lot better or stronger than they taste, but I’m happy to say that with this tea, that isn’t the case. The first note I got when I sipped on this tea was juicy peach, followed by a mellow cream flavor.

The thing that I appreciated most about this tea is that the peach didn’t get lost in the sweetness of cream. The peach flavor is still the star of this tea, with a touch of cream flavor to balance it out and make it really smooth.

This was my first time trying Impeach Teas and I know I will have to pick up more. This blend is very well balanced and an extremely enjoyable cuppa.

Decaf Momo from Lupicia. . . .

Before going into this, I want to preface this review by stating (1) I don’t usually like decaffeinated blends and (2) I tend to usually not enjoy Lupicia’s black base. So, this is not a tea I would have ever picked for myself despite enjoying other Momo teas, but it was shared with me by a tea friend and for that reason alone, it is worth a try. Alright, so let’s get started.

Decaf Momo is a white peach tea on a decaffeinated black tea base. The smell of both the dry and steeped blend is mouthwatering, like a juicy and fresh peach. Thankfully, that transfers over to the taste as well. The base only contributes a slight briskness that blends to the peach flavor. I suppose something about either the decaffeinating process or the strong taste of the peach has hidden the usually astringent base making for a tea that is actually quite nice.

Obviously going into this, I did not have high hopes. I am happy to report that my worries were unfounded as this, like the other variety of Momo teas Lupicia offers, is a great peach offering for those looking for a tea with that flavor. Plus, being decaffeinated, it is a tea that can be enjoyed anytime of day.
