When I saw this tea I knew I would have to try it – and I’m also the first person to review it – huzzah!

I just got it today and couldn’t wait to try it. The dry tea smells good, like a gingery cinnamon goodness. I was wondering how the green tea base would be in this blend and I find that I like it. I admit I’m not really getting “cake” and the hyson seems to lend a slight citrus quality to this tea. I might wait a week or two for the flavors to meld and then retry it. Adding 1/2 a packet of sugar really seemed to make the flavors pop.

I am finding this to be yummy but I do love ginger and the ginger flavor is quite strong… I might need to try icing this just to see what happens. thanks for another good blend, Frank!

Ha ha, we totally had the same thoughts! Ooh, iced, what a great idea! I’ll try that, too. This would be awesome iced. I got tropical eyebrows in my order today as well. That one is killer iced.

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
