This tea is a nice alternative to a traditional green. The peach and ginger add enough flavor that I didn’t add any sweetener. I will say that I can taste the spicy of the ginger much more than the peach flavor. It is a very pleasant tasting blend, but it is more ginger green with a hint of peach than an equal mix of the two flavors.

I happen to love the combination of green and ginger. Since green tea is typically lower in caffeine than black tea this makes a nice choice for an afternoon pick-me-up that won’t keep you up later. Also, ginger helps to cleanse your palate so this would be nice after a meal as well. This particular green tea holds up better with a little extra steeping than other greens. This is due to the matcha powder that is meant to be disolved in the tea not steeped and removed. So instead of deeming this tea fussy, as some greens are, this is still easy to make.

Lets start out by talking for a minute about how much I love peach anything – the color, the fruit and the flavor. If you put peaches in anything you can bet I’ll be lining up to give it a try. I love eating juice-running-down-your-arm ripe peaches and of course I love peach flavors in my tea! Peach fruit on the bottom yogurt? Yes, please. Peach crumble? Right again! But there is one thing I don’t love about peach – fake peach flavor. No thanks, none for me. So, I am always a little leery when trying things with “peach flavor”. What is that? Real peach stuff or something else? Though, I’m still not sure what it is, in this case, it worked out! This tea is a great blend of the bite of ginger and a sweetness of peach! The peachiness is subtle and blends well with the spiciness of the ginger and the earthy taste of the matcha. If any of these flavors are your thing I would highly recommend this tea.

I haven’t had the chance to try it iced yet, but I bet it would be really refreshing. There goes one more thing added to my “to do” list! Have you tried this tea iced? If so I’d love to hear how it turned out.
