I was eyeing Steep City Tea’s white teas. I sometimes pass over ginger blends, as in my mind I classify them as “If you tried one, you’ve tried them all” kinda deal.

/the audience throws troll hate mail! 

No no no,  I do like ginger, don’t get me wrong! Ehh, maybe I was traumatized by crappy bagged ginger tea.

Anyways, I read the ingredients of this Ginger Zinger.. PEACH?! Hmm. Ehh, I’ll try it, I don’t have any fruity ginger teas in my collection right now.

Turns out Ginger Zinger is a HIDDEN GEM!

DRY LEAF: Smell of this tea is kinda orange peely and ginger. Little bitter. Ehh. Nice appearance with the lovely white tea.

STEEPED: Very lush greeny leaf steeping appearance!

Gingery citrusy smell over a marigold yellow coloured tea. Hoo hum. Make sure to give this tea a good mix, I found lots of orange bits and such on the bottom of the bag. Darn light white tea!

I steeped this tea as per package instructions: 175F for 2 minutes.

TASTE: What the?!?!?! A refreshing zing of ginger, bit of smooth sweet orange with an after taste of juicy juicy peach. The white Pai Mu Tan base is juicy, slightly sweet and a teeny bit floral. The peach flavor in this tea is addictive! And the orange is really good, like squeezed orange juice – I guess it is to be expected with a Florida based tea company. I’ve seen orange peels used often in teas but the flavor usually doesn’t come through, so it is nice to have actual orange taste!

What I love about tea – always something new. This cup I’m getting more ginger. Last cup I made was really peachy! Both cups, equally tasty! Sweetened, the peach and orange come out more and juicy. Despite that, I prefer this tea unsweetened.

RESTEEP: Because this tea is so good, I need to try the resteep. For science! eerrr uhhh.. to check if its good so I can prolong the life of this tea. The Ginger Zinger resteep is a mellow, slightly orange brew with ginger pulsing throughout the entire sip. The aftertaste is a refreshing orange flavor. Not bad, no peach but I’d drink this resteep!

COMMENTS: I’m too busy drooling right now.  Here’s our special Crab guest:

Uhhh. Sorry, wrong crab! I meant the amigurumi crab from earlier. He’s visiting from my crochet blog for fun.

Ginger Zinger is a delicious, refreshing and juicy mix of ginger, peach and orange. Very good fruit flavors here. Ginger tea fans – this is a must try! Another win from Steep City Teas!
