I'm not normally a fan of ginger tea but I was feeling under the weather so I thought that I would give this one a go. The taste was spicy and sweet with a bit of bite in the finish. Each sip left an odd, tongue tingling sensation. Although it was fruity and sweet, I definitely found myself missing the peachiness that was promised by the name. A touch of sugar could work well with this tea and might help soften the bitterness. That being said, if you a ginger tea lover then you might really enjoy it. I'm usually a big fan of Tiesta but unfortunately this blend just wasn't for me. Their Fruity Pebbles and Nutty Almond Cream are much more my style. This is the first sample from them that was not my thing but I still think that they are a great company. The wonderful thing about tea is that there is something out there for everyone, no matter what your tastes are.
