I wanted something gingery, but probably what I really need is something a little more grounding, like a Puerh. In fact, what I REALLY wanted was a cup of Sichuan Caravan, which would satisfy both my desire for ginger & my need for grounding. I just got a new shipment from Verdant, which includes a new supply of the Caravan, still, I figured I’d have a cup of this first.
As far as the aesthetics of creating a beautiful blend, David has done it again, with a confetti of shades of beige, brown, red, hot pink, & green. The smell is earthy & enticing & bright, tickling my nose with the promise of ginger root. There are lots of excellent herbs in here, & my immune sys can always use support.
It looks lovely steeping, especially in glass. I drank most of the cup plain, adding a few drops of honey to the last couple of sips, and I enjoyed it both ways. It’s probably not a tea I will crave, but it does have a soothing quality to it, and is pleasant.
