A one off sample from a friend that I have had for far too long. As far as I can remember I haven’t tried Wissotzky before so this shall be completely new.

Bag: Looked somewhat powdery and smelled strongly of ginger.
Steep: The colour is very yellow with a smell of subtle and fresh lemongrass.

Well while this tastes like lemongrass with a slight spicy ginger kick and that sounds nice I find that this is lacking something. It’s light and slightly spicy but with nothing to ground it…I can’t taste the green tea at all. It tastes like a Chinese remedy instant drink mixture that dissolves in water instead of a tea.

Pop a small sachet of chopped lemongrass and a pinch of ginger root and pour warm water over it and you will basically have this tea. Not very impressed at all and I am certainly not sad I only have one bag. Just not for me.

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
