I really like tinkering around with my own blends, I think it’s the artist/creative weirdo in me that can’t always leave well enough alone.

I thought I’d try this tea steeped today along with some dried ginger root; I was feeling a bit queasy and thought the ginger would help. The result is delicious, like a sweet ginger candy! A great experiment which I will be repeating again soon. I find ginger root goes well with many teas, I’ve also tried it in green, black and rooibos, but the white tea and ginger might be my favorite yet. Fun and healthy.

Hhhmmmm, that’s interesting. I would think the ginger would overpower the white tea.

I love to play around with the teas also. Besides mixing different teas together to see how well they blend, I take things from my flower gardens to try such as cilantro, dill, or rosemary.

@Scott – there was definitely more ginger than white tea flavor but it was really good!

I’m with you though. When it comes to ginger, it’s all good! :))

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
