drank White Ginger by Golden Moon Tea
558 tasting notes

Another sample from the wondrous golden moon sampler. This is a very delicate blend. I only steeped for two minutes, on the lower end of the suggested 2-4 minutes, as I am not fond of Ginger. This tea has just the slightest tingle of Ginger in the aftertaste. It seems to build with each sip I take. I do like the white tea base that was used for this as it doesn’t taste vegetal or grassy. This was a nice hydrating cup.

This is one of the ones I’m looking forward to most! I love ginger and buy it in bulk to add to different teas. I am; however, picky about my tea/flavor ratio for all flavored teas so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like preflavored.

I wished I had saved my leaves to try a second infusion with a longer steep, but I am staying with family and they “helped” me by cleaning up my tea stuff and rinsing it out. Oh well.

Cofftea

Ah! That drives me nuts! :(

Meghann,
That’s almost as bad as when my Mom comes over to visit and adds sugar to tea that really doesn’t need it and then leaves over half a cup. Which she did about a week ago. I chalked it up to lessen learned only serve her what I KNOW she likes.

I just finished drinking my sampler of this tea as well, what a coincidence! I thought the ginger in it wasn’t that strong since I’m not a huge fan of ginger flavor either. I also liked how it wasn’t so grassy. Sucks that you didn’t get a chance to do multiple infusions, thats one of my favorite things about white teas :(

Soccermom-good idea to just give her what she’ll drink.

I’m looking forward to multiple infusions of the White Persian Melon. Maybe I’ll try that one tomorrow afternoon. That one sounds so good!

@SoccerMom that’s an awful waste! at least my mom tries everything i give her, and then emails me her reviews, she thinks i’m after her with all the rooibos and wants to know where her caffeine is

Cofftea

AmazonV… emails her reviews? Just get her on steepster!=D

SoccerMom

AmazonV- That’s sweet/cute how she emails you reviews.

it’s usually “yea that one you dropped off, ditto, buy some” “is this one caffeinated” “i don’t like the idea of buttered vegetable tea”

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
