Ginger Peach Snowcone from T by Daniel. . . .

Ginger and peach are both popular tea flavors. Two flavors that can also be quite hit or miss. Here the two are paired on a white tea, something that can also be hit or miss. Ginger Peach Snowcone by T by Daniel is a hit.

Normally when it comes to tea with ginger, I always want a ginger burn. This tea has no burn but I think that is for the best. It is like a mix of fuzzy peaches sprinkled with some ginger flavor. A little sweet and slightly spiced. The best of both worlds to keep things in check. Both flavors come through while also being harmoniously blended and that’s what makes this tea great. It’s also what makes this ginger great even without the burn. The white tea is a bit roasty to compliment the other flavors.

T by Daniel is a Canadian company that has been around for as long as I have been drinking tea. They have a cute gimmick, displaying all their teas on their site in cute bow ties to compliment the bow ties they also sell online. They have some interesting blends and so far the ones I have tried have been enjoyable. One day soon I will probably crack and place an order with them, if for no other reason than I will want more of this tea.

Here’s the scoop!

Silver Needle from Teabook via Sipsby. . . .

Today was the day that I finally decided I would go through my many teas that I have received from Sipsby.  If you aren’t familiar with Sipsby, I encourage you to take a moment and check out their service.  For $15 a month, you are sent a curated box of teas from a variety of tea companies based on your flavor profile.  Each month the teas vary and I’ve discovered and rediscovered tea companies that I adore.

Silver Needle has always been a favorite of mine and as soon as I saw the Silver Needle from Teabook in my stash, I knew today was the day for this tea.

I brewed this tea with  water at 180F and infused in my Wall Infuser Mug, the perfect combo!

After I allowed the water to cool for a moment and I instantly picked up notes of fresh stone fruits like peaches and a delightful contrast of hay.  Each sip is as satisfying as the last- I really enjoy the two flavors playing off each other and after having a cold for a few weeks now, I’m glad I can taste both flavors.

This tea maybe simple but the flavors are spot on and quite enjoyable, just what my afternoon needed.
