Peach is a common addition to tea. Whether you drink yours iced or hot, the sweetness of a peach with the soft touch of ginger makes for a wonderful combination. And so it goes with this Peach Ginger black tea from Zhena’s Gypsy Tea.

As this tea is bagged I can’t see the leaves. But, being made with a more subtle Ceylon (Sri Lankan) black tea than most peach teas I’ve had it puts off a slightly more enticing aroma full of ripe peach sweetness.
This tea brews a dark caramel liquor providing an aroma full of baked peaches and the hint of a spicy touch.
On the palate this tea morphs into something different. The profile is slightly astringent, drying the outer edges of the mouth. The peach flavor is more subtle at this point and the ginger tends to come through with just a tough more force. The flavor here is weaker than other peach/ginger blends I’ve had and I actually appreciate that.
I would recommend this blend to fans of peach flavored teas and lighter Indian and Ceylon black teas.
