This smells SO gingery, it’s amazing.

I was drinking a tea with hibiscus (That wasn’t supposed to have hibiscus in it! ARGH!) and it was making my tummy upset, so I decided to try this one. I’ve added a little honey to it already while it’s steeping, since my favourite ginger “tea” is essentially a boatload of grated ginger and lots of dark brown sugar, with maybe a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Steeped, this is making my eyes water. In a good way! I mostly taste ginger, with a bit of a kick in the aftertaste from the pepper. It’s not as strong as just grating a boatload of ginger into a pot and boiling it with sugar (haha), but it’s really tasty. This is definitely something I’ll stock in my cupboard.

I didn’t pour all the tea in my pot, so the rest of it is going to steep till I remember about it and go back for it. I hope it gets ridiculously gingery.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
