8 Tasting Notes
taking a whiff of this tea in the bag is lovely.just that real GINGER smell.spicy, tangy, just sniffing it, you know how it will taste.
when bewed, it is a lovely dark color.
it tastes better than just a plain ginger tea, with the pu’erh adding a richer,more complex flavour.
it’s the next step up from plain ginger tea.
a nice, spicy aftertaste.
I drink this tea sweetened with either raw sugar or agave, with a touch of milk.
It can also be great spiked with a cream based liquor.
This really is one of my favorite teas. I have restocked my stash many times, and now just buy a large tin of it.
For Christmas, I bought 5 or 6 packets of it to give as gifts so I could make sure all my lovelies tried some~
A few people here commented on the strong taste of ginger in this blend, and you know, I have drank SO much of this tea and never picked out a distinct ginger flavour.
Really prevalent are the tastes of coconut (which is heavenly), the peppercorns come next.
You take a sip and the coconut is almost creamy, the cardamom and cinnamon pair together nicely in this nice comforting warmth. Once the rest of the flavors are gone, you are left the spicy hints of the peppercorns.
Davids Tea says “Its the kind of thing you get addicted to”.They don’t lie.
This is an AMAZING tea to bring in a large thermos when you need to brave the cold.
It’s warm flavors are an even better treat than hot chocolate !~
