Like some other people I had purchased this with the intention of mixing it with other teas, I thought it would be great with some dragonwell green tea and maybe a pu’erh.

I really love ginger and always have, aside from the flavor it’s a great medicinal root, good for colds, digestion and just generally warming up in cold or damp weather.

I decided to steep this up on its’ own with an infuser mug and around 2 minutes with boiling water. The ginger is not as strong as I thought it would be, it’s well balanced with the saffron, the orange and the fennel. It is pretty intense and spicy but definitely it matches the description and is as good as I was hoping it would be! It also gets a few bonus points for versatility…

note: I tried it again with some dragonwell green tea and that combo ROCKS! =)

Nice! I’m also excited to try mixing this with stuff. High on my list try try are tulsi and yunnan blacks. Haven’t tried it with any of my greens- I’ll have to do so this weekend.

Now I wish I had ordered more… I just got one ounce. I think it would be good with tulsi for sure.

Bio

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
