drank Ginger's Oolong by Harney & Sons
2351 tasting notes

Harney makes a terrific formosa oolong and I love ginger so I had higher hopes for this one. Smells weird in the package and even weirder as a tea. I don’t have much else to say about it except I’m glad it’s only a sample. I will try steeping maybe with less time and see if I can improve upon my icky feelings.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 15 sec

I don’t think I can “like” this tea, because I like oolong and ginger, AND I had always wanted to try this one. Now I’m not so sure. :// Well, I’ll like it for the “heads up” and fair warning. I think I’ll avoid this one.

I’ll gladly send you the rest of this sample if you want to try it!

HHmmm…….I’ll think about it. :))

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
