Tea of the early (ok its 9am) morning. This is another from World Tea East and Rishi. I was interested in this one because I love pu-erh and ginger. But mixing ginger into anything is a tricky business. At least I’ve always found it to be. So I was a little unsure of how this was going to work out.
The dry leaf smells very much of ginger and earthy pu-erh…a good sign. But will it steep up the same way? The smell is more of the ginger and earthy pu-erh I smelled with the dry leaf, my hopes are up. I must say I was not let down the flavor is very earthy and rich, but with the nice bite of the ginger at the finish. This one is a winner in my book!
