drank Blue Ginger by Harney & Sons
358 tasting notes

I thought that this tea sounded fun, so I added a sample pack to my most recent Harney’s order. The dry leaves smell really florally-gingery. I am not the biggest fan of ginger, but I love lychee-flavored teas, so I hope that I like this. Anddd I just spilled my poor little sample packet all over the kitchen floor. :( I have just enough left to make 2 cups. Is it ok to cry over spilled tea leaves?

-Blend is made up of plain tea leaves.
-Dry leaves smell sweetly of ginger. Tea liquor aroma is more floral and of lychee.
-Tea liquor is a very dark brown color.
-Pleasant lychee flavor with hints of ginger. No bitterness.
-Best with sweetener.
-Very good tea. Sweetener brings out more of the spicy ginger flavor.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
