drank Ginger Sweet Peach by Tiesta Tea
347 tasting notes

Switching to tisanes so I’ll sleep well tonight.
This one has a definite peach flavour, though I wonder if I would have been able to identify it if I hadn’t known what I was trying to taste. :) I found the hibiscus pretty strong in this cup – not enough to make it unpleasant but definitely tart. Not recommended for people who hate hibiscus! The ginger and peppercorns give it a fairly subtle warming character. It’s nice, I like it. I’m definitely finding it relaxing, or maybe I’m just tired. :)
I did notice that since I was only making one cup, and the dried fruits/blossoms/etc are pretty chunky, it would be pretty easy to get, say, an extra hibiscus blossom or two. I wonder if it’s a bit hard to get the right ratio of ingredients this way. I might try it in a teapot next time.

Flavors: Ginger, Hibiscus, Peach

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
