drank Blue Ginger by Harney & Sons
1827 tasting notes

I can’t believe this one wasn’t listed yet and I am the first one to review it!

This was a free sample provided by Russel Allyn of Harney and Sons. Thank you for sending this for me to try! This is one whose description has intrigued me for a long time. The only thing that held me back was that it is only available in sachets, and I prefer to buy loose leaf.

When I steeped this I thought the ginger was the predominant aroma, so much so that I wondered if I would like it. I like a bit of ginger, but not too much. The sip was different, though. While the ginger is plainly there, it didn’t bully me. It added a nice sweetness to the cup. I have had only one lychee flavored tea and that was also by H&S, and I remember thinking that it tastes like light rose scenting instead of fruit. (I tried the fruit once and it was >t use because it smells so bad. Like lychee fruit. Maybe I got a mutant one.). The H&S Lychee Black tea was so good I would consider keeping it on shelf as a floral black.

In this one, the ginger and lychee are running neck and neck in strength, with ginger maybe winning out a bit. This is leaving a sweet taste at the back of the mouth, sweetness at the end of the first sips, and a lingering heat on my tongue from the ginger…not a really strong heat, just an aftertaste.

I have never had Thai food, but I bet this is what it tastes like. Very nice to get to try this! Thank you!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
