drank Super Ginger (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
753 tasting notes

Went to the mall with my mom, and we had our usual order of sushi. Mom wanted to try tea with it, so we went to the Davids and ordered this tea to go (mom’s pick). This was the first time I had this tea. I already have a ginger I love at home but I thought this one was worth a try.
It definitely is SUPER ginger. It was very strong ginger, almost to the point where it burns your tongue, but not quite. It was very good and complemented the sushi very well. We had it plain, but I think it would have also been good with some sweetener in it. It doesn’t leave an aftertaste which is a bonus. Even though it is a strong flavoured tea, it almost helps to clear your palate after the sushi.
It got my nose to start running, so I can definitely see how it would be a good tea to have when sick or with a cold.
I did enjoy this tea but will probably not buy any for home. I think it is worth to have with the sushi lunch.

Edit note: I brought the tea bag home as Davids put lots of tea in the bag. It made an excellent re-steep. The only issue was I somehow got some soya sauce (from the sushi) on the bag, so it was a little bit salty. But it worked pretty good with the ginger tea. I might have stumbled on something here :P

Well all sushi tastes great with Ginger and Soy sauce so why not mix them :) however I would refrain from adding any wasabi…..unless you REALLY want a spicy KICK!!! Did the tea pair well with sushi?? or did you have it before or after?

It paired well, we drank it while we ate. I will probably have this combination again, next time I go.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
