"
One of my favorite teas right now is Ginger Peach, a beautiful long leaf China black tea with delicate peach nectar and a subtle spice note of ginger. There's even a delicious hint of cinnamon which compliments the ginger and the sweet peach flavor. During a busy day, it's nice to take a moment out to share this special tea with staff and catch up on the day."
