Thumbs up!"All the flavors resonate both together and separately. Ginger and peach are most prominent in the teas but I can distinguish the taste of apricot in there too."

This flavored tea is set in an Assam base and features a lovely, spicy cast of characters. The tea itself is short to medium length, twisty and jet black with big chips of ginger and dark chips of dried, unsulphured (hooray!) apricot. The scent is sweet, peachy ginger with an underlying smoothness that is subtle yet fat and definitely apricot.

I infused a teaspoon of leaf in 8 ounces of boiling water for three minutes.

The leaf colors up to a dark copper and the ginger is immediately pleasant and warming. The peach is prominent and sweet, especially when augmented with a bit of sweetener. The peachy-apricot fruitiness has a full, luscious quality of sweetness that seems to match up nicely with the spicy warmth of ginger. The ginger and the fruit both complement and contrast one another. I also like the juxtaposition of summer fruit flavors with the spicy warmth of ginger, which I tend to associate with the colder months. It works well! This is very warming for a cool summer morning. Living in the northern half of the US or any other place where summers don't tend to get scorching, this is a nice wake up cup.

I also like the strength of this tea. It's smooth and full-bodied with lots of fruit flavors. I feel like I've tasted it before. Surprisingly, too, all the flavors resonate both together and separately. Ginger and peach are most prominent in the tea but I can distinguish the taste of apricot in there too. It lends a fuller more lush fruit mellowness - a little step down from the peach to the close. Good stuff! The tea is organic, too.

A nice flavored fruit blend that succeeds in natural fruit flavor (lots of it) with no artificial weird flavors. I think this would be really great iced, too. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get some good summer weather worthy of giving that a try!
