Hmmm….Ginger Chicken with Asparagus?? ;)

Actually, no that was just my initial impression—it’s the steamed ginger scent that’s throwing me off a little bit. But this does taste kind of “brothy” to me. I’m not detecting any sweetness like the description implies.

This is definitely a warming cup of tea and seems soothing to the stomach. But I guess it’s the white tea I’m not favoring too much. Very faint and tannic.

A sort of “anemic” tea that’s been invigorated by ginger.

The more I sip, I can’t help thinking that this reminds me of chicken soup! There’s this noodle restaurant near me that serves the best chicken noodle soup and they put a lot of ginger in it. So, I think this would be very good if you have a cold….kind of like a tea equivalent of “chicken soup”, I guess?

Lol. I remember now that you did say white teas can remind you of chicken soup. Here it was. This is the next thing I pulled out of the sampler randomly so I’ll have to see if I get the same thing out of it.

Like I said, white tea is “broth-y”! Like chicken broth! I don’t know what it is, but I taste that. It’s weird, maybe my steeping is wrong? Or maybe it’s the fact that white tea is chock-full of amino acids that it tastes “protein-like”!

Have you ever tried lemon verbena? If so, did you get brothy? I got REALLY brothy, like the juice from a roast lemon/herbed chicken out of that.

Stephanie

I have in perfumes but never in a tea. But it makes sense because lemon verbena is so herbal/herbaceous.

Stephanie

Oh, now I want Lemon Chicken!! Or even better—Lemon Chicken Wings!

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
Quote of the Day: “There really isn’t anything; only the story appearing now—and not even that.”
