From the Samurai TTB.

I’ve seen a lot of reviews for teakruthi teas here on Steepster. This is the first one I’ve tried from this company, and I have to say that it’s the best tea I’ve had from the box so far. I love it! And if I hadn’t finished the bag to make this cup, I would have pulled it to keep in my own stash. It’s full-bodied, takes milk really well, and stays true to its flavors. I can taste both the sweet peach and the ginger, but the ginger doesn’t overwhelm. It’s not too spicy, it complements the peach. I can see this making a really good iced tea as well, but I’m loving it hot. I could go on and on about how delicious this is. tea-sipper, I think you might have forced my hand – it looks like I’ll be making a teakruthi order before too long. :)

Flavors: Ginger, Peach

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Teakruthi’s teas are great – I doubt you will be disappointed. This one was too much ginger for me, so I’m glad I sent it along for it to be enjoyed better by someone else. :D

I saw some others say that about the ginger too. Maybe my cup didn’t have any ginger pieces or something? I don’t know, but it was GOOD.

Bio

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist, excessively proud cat lady, and tea fanatic. Thirty-something elder millennial. She/her.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I prefer to sweeten my tea as it seems to bring out the flavor. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

It will take me longer than usual to get to the post office while we’re in the midst of this pandemic, but I would still love to send you something next time I’m out and about!

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-70: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

71-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
