zhi-ginger-peach-oolong.jpgZhi Tea's website describes this tea in the following "Zhi House Blend Ginger Peach Oolong is as exotic and luxurious as it sounds. Hand-blended by our master craftsman, this tea is designed to appeal to all your senses. Our top quality organic Sechong Oolong, organic ginger root, and organic juicy peach pieces combine to create a superbly refreshing, aromatic, and robust flavor experience. The ginger gives a hint of bright spiciness while the peach adds a touch of sweetness and softness. An outstanding tea, if we may say so ourselves, that also produces a jaw-dropping iced tea. Invite your friends, they'll love you for it.." Zhi Tea is fairly new to me, but I have to say that I have been quite impressed by all of their teas that I have tried so far.
My sample of this tea consisted of good sized oolong leaves and a generous amount of ginger root. As much as I tried, I couldn't see anything that resembled the pieces of peach pictured on the website. But, regardless of that, it is the peach aroma and flavor that commands all the attention. Many oolongs have a light peachiness to their flavor naturally, and the juicy peach added to this blend is a PERFECT addition. It doesn't taste or smell the least bit artificial and is absolutely delicious. The ginger root though quite plentiful visually, was a very delicate addition to the finished brew. In this particular tea, that was definitely a plus, as ginger can sometimes overwhelm the other flavors. Ginger is touted as an aid in digestion so its addition would probably help to make this an excellent tea to drink both during and after a meal. I tried it hot first and didn't think there was much chance of it being any better iced, but I believe I was wrong. It makes a delightful iced tea that I plan to be enjoying alot more of this summer. I believe this is the best flavored oolong I have tried.

    Thank you for the unsolicited review of one of my blends. I am the tea master at Zhi Tea.

    I am sorry your particular sample was void of peach pieces! Rest assured that they are in there, organic and juicy.

    Keep on steepin’.
