drank Ginger by Yogi Tea
1112 tasting notes

Owwwww! Hot, hot, hot! This is one spicy tisane! My lips were tingling! I had to look in the mirror after I finished my cup because I was afraid that I would look like those people who get lip injections!!! (nope, just my very active imagination).

What I am trying to say is this ginger tea was way too bitey for moi! I could see brewing it like this if I had a cold, but it was a bit much for evening enjoyment.

Thankfully, I do have an idea on how to make this more palatable! I am going to use 2 cups of water, 1 bag of tisane, and a slice of crystallized ginger next time! It should make it pleasantly bitey and sweet. I’ll letcha know!!

Hmm, I have a cold and I have a bag of this in my tea drawer (I think someone sent it to me and I haven’t tried it yet). Maybe I’ll have to try it today.

Adding honey might work too.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
