Argh, some days it really seems like the PT is trying to torture me although I know it needs to be done. I might be going to work part-time next week or I might be getting fired and I’m waiting to hear what the final conclusion is. Couldn’t wait to come home and have a nice cup of tea to take my mind off my troubles. :)

I’ve been looking for a nice ginger green tea for some anti-inflammatory properties so perhaps this is it. Looking through the reviews on Steepster, this is definitely an unpopular tea but I actually like it. Mostly what I get from this cup is the ginger and the pepper which are both very strong and spicy. There is both licorice and stevia in here as well as orange peel. I don’t get the orange peel at all but there is a touch of sweetness from the licorice which I don’t really mind either. I guess you need to appreciate a lot of spices in order to get into this one. Mostly I’ll be drinking it for the health benefits and it’s A-ok in my book… between the ginger, green tea and licorice it’s an anti-inflammatory cocktail!

It’s not right you might be getting fired! :(

TeaBrat

It could be a blessing in disguise!

How could you be fired if you are in the midst of PT? That does not sound right to me…

TeaBrat

I think they can always claim it would cause the company some kind of undue hardship but I am not medically ready to go back full time. oh well!

I hope it will turn out for the best for you, TeaBrat!

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
