Ginger Peach Snowcone from T by Daniel. . . .

Ginger and peach are both popular tea flavors. Two flavors that can also be quite hit or miss. Here the two are paired on a white tea, something that can also be hit or miss. Ginger Peach Snowcone by T by Daniel is a hit.

Normally when it comes to tea with ginger, I always want a ginger burn. This tea has no burn but I think that is for the best. It is like a mix of fuzzy peaches sprinkled with some ginger flavor. A little sweet and slightly spiced. The best of both worlds to keep things in check. Both flavors come through while also being harmoniously blended and that’s what makes this tea great. It’s also what makes this ginger great even without the burn. The white tea is a bit roasty to compliment the other flavors.

T by Daniel is a Canadian company that has been around for as long as I have been drinking tea. They have a cute gimmick, displaying all their teas on their site in cute bow ties to compliment the bow ties they also sell online. They have some interesting blends and so far the ones I have tried have been enjoyable. One day soon I will probably crack and place an order with them, if for no other reason than I will want more of this tea.

Peach Oolong from Adagio Teas. . . .

Back in the depths of winter, this cute perfectly-sized giant iced tea bag found its way into my samples box. I opened it up, gave it a sniff, sighed longingly for warmer temps.

This fun, quart-sized sachet is perfect for brewing up a big ol’ mason jar filled with tea.  I deployed my favorite cold-brew method and let this one do its thing in the fridge overnight (or more realistically, a few nights, since I usually forget what I have brewin’) and it was the perfect, golden liquor after about a day. The brew is mildly peachy and fairly hearty for an oolong– it’s almost reminiscent of an iced black tea in that regard, but a little bit less robust. This would be the perfect base for a slightly unconventional Arnold Palmer-style bev, and is absolutely made for sunny sipping.

Presidential Peach from Impeach Teas

Presidential Peach from Impeach Teas is a classic ceylon black tea with peach flavor and flower petals.  The bright ceylon tea is well-suited for sunny fruit flavors, and adds a touch of starchy baked goods beneath all the juicy peach taste.

This tea seems well-suited for classic presidents of history who have beautiful estates in areas like Virginia.  The peach and black tea are the essential summer sweet tea flavor combination. While it is comforting as a warm brew, it will be perfect as a cold brew for sipping on a wide verandah and taking in the summer weather.

Coconut Peach Turmeric from Spice and Tea Exchange. . . .

Count me in with the legions of humans who have been recently flocking to turmeric in everything, friends– I love its slightly bitter spiciness, I love how well it translates in everything from sweet to savory, I love its inherent anti-inflammatory goodness… I love it all. I recently participated in a tea swap with a fellow Sororitea Sister, and when she asked what kinds of teas I’d like to try, I requested anything that would be tasty iced. (that IS my summer tea drinking M.O., clearly.) While I usually reach for a very specific few kinds of teas to ice (greens, fruity herbals, fruity blacks, nothing nutty/savory/decadent), it was fun to see someone else’s choices of ice-able teas and push myself outside of my comfort zone!

Now, while this tea TOTALLY fits within those guidelines, I think the ‘turmeric’ in there would have typically swayed me away from trying this one iced, and that would have been a shame. Hot, this tea is tasty– but iced is totally where it shines. The bitterness of the turmeric is perfectly offset by the sweet peach and creamy coconut, and where these flavors could potentially veer into saccharine or dull territory, they’re perfectly accented by the spice of the turmeric. I’m so glad I gave this one a try, and I’m now totally motivated to expand my ice-able comfort zone to teas I normally wouldn’t try. Thanks, fellow sister!

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.
