I really enjoyed this tea. It is nice and fruity. It doesn't require any sweetener.

I tried this tea again today, and have decided to redo my original rating rather than simply update it.

Okay, the smell is very nice--fruity without being excessively intense or artificial. The black tea provides body and the slight zing of caffeine without making the tea bitter. I didn't steep it long and I think that's for the best with a lot of these teas by Republic of Tea. They don't need long infusions, and removing the bag once the color is right gives you a better shot at a second good cup. Otherwise, the second cup is far too pale and too much flavor drops out. I managed to get a very satisfactory (though not quite as strong) second cup this time.

The peach tastes like the sort you would get in a flavored oatmeal, but the tea itself doesn't have an oatmeal-like flavor (though some teas do, in my opinion). The ginger is there, but so subtle I wouldn't have noticed it much if it wasn't in the title. There's also just the hint of a creamy texture.

Overall, a very solid tea. Like with all of Republic of Tea's teabags, however, this largely makes me want to try the loose leaf version. I bet it's divine. :-)

This is my favorite loose-leaf tea. Right out of the package, the scent is wonderful, a sign of good things to come.

I have not found a peach blend that so perfectly balances the peach flavor with that of the black tea. It's a nice, strong brew, with a definite peachy tinge. The scent is equally pleasant, smelling more strongly of peach than anything else, which I personally like very much. It is difficult to brew this one badly. No matter what you do to it, it always comes through.

This is a superb fruit blend, and well worth the price. Age does not seem to diminish this blend either - there is a can that has been kicking around my house for nearly four years, and it is still almost identical in scent and flavor to a brand new container. Highly recommended.

Love this and the decaf one. Lightly scented of Ginger - but a wonderful peachy top-note without that "artificial" peachy taste. Love this one - and I don't usually do black teas.

This might be my favorite tea ever!

You can find this in a bag or loose leaf in the bulk tea section of your favorite natural foods store (eg Rainbow Grocery in SF) or on the RoT website. I prefer the more environmentally friendly and IMO better tasting loose leaf.

A smooth, very full flavored tea with prominent but balanced ginger and peach flavors. Pricier than the cheapie flavored blacks but a dramatic step up in quality. Serve with whole milk and sugar.

I think this tea is a bit too strong. The black tea taste overpowers the ginger/peach.

I usually hate fruit teas, and to be honest, I'm not too fond of the fruitiness in this. Somehow, though, the peach and ginger flavors balance each other nicely, and the assertive base of black tea still comes through. I associate this tea with afternoons, the kind when you need a jolt. Also smells great.
