Thank you Amy Oh, for this fantastic sample!
I’m not really a fan of soda, partly because it’s too sweet and partly because the bubbles hurt my stomach. But I am a fan of ginger and white tea. And this blend is neither sweet or bubbly so how can we go wrong, right? Right. This tea is super tasty!

This has a bit of a medicinal flavor to it, but that’s because dried ginger tends to taste that way to me. Fortunately, this blend has enough other stuff going on that I barely notice it. The white tea is mild yet refreshing. It provides a good base for the bergamot and light ginger flavor. I’m also detecting something creamy or vanilla-y. It’s not really a replica of ginger ale, but it is good! Call it a White Ginger Grey if you want. It’s tasty and that’s all that matters.

It should perhaps be noted that I cold brewed this for at least 24 hours. Maybe longer. I had 3 other cold brews going on and this one was neglected for a while. It probably would have been fine with even a shorter cold brew. But not that I’ve tasted it, the pot is going to go fast!

if you liked that and you want to try something else, I had a wholesale client whose husband had part of his lower intestines bisected and she had seen a Dr. Oz plug about pu erh teas and called me to see if I had any ginger/pu erh blends. I told her I would be happy to mix something up for her to help his recovery, but I also recommended that she add a bit of white tea to help the digestive healing. The blend is called Starburst Tummy Tonic (through Staufs Coffee Roasters) and is a blend of shou pu erh (2009), organic Bai Mudan, and organic shreaded ginger. Cold brewed it comes out like ginger ale without the carbonation.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
