So, in my most recent Adagio order/the order they sent to me they included a week of “The CommuniTEA” which is something that I’ve seen on instagram – so I already had a familiarity with the concept. Basically, it’s a portioned out serving of one of their teas that they have selected with a date printed on the sample – recipients are encouraged to share their experience on social media…
Well, I fucked up a little bit because I made the tea for April 5th today/posted a photo of it a day early – I swear all this time from self isolation/quarantine is blurring together because I really thought that it was Sunday today. So, my apologies to Adagio for messing up the system and to anyone on instagram that I may have ruined the surprise of the tea for. I deleted my story post, but I’m leaving the grid post.
Sorry y’all – I’m only human. I’ll get back on track on Monday…
The tea itself was nice though; far more of the peach and apricot flavouring than any ginger, but I did feel like I was getting a bit of that warming and tickle-y ginger element in the back of my throat as an undertone of the profile and I could see the very small shreds of ginger in the dry leaf visual. I’d say that they were quite scant, though. The black base is something that I don’t love from Adagio, but in this particular blend it adds body while being muted enough that I don’t think it detracts from the overall profile.
There’s nothing about this ginger peach blend that is unique to me, but it’s not bad so if you’re just looking for a simple and no frills ginger peach, and you don’t mind the ginger being milder, then this is probably a good option. If you want wow factor ginger/peach or something different than what you can find from so many places, look elsewhere.
Not bad, though.

Is it a coincidence that I’m listening to the new Peach Pit album while drinking a peach tea? Yes. Am I upset with that coincidence? No, not at all.
