drank Tangerine Ginger by Rishi Tea
911 tasting notes

Want more tea, don’t need the caffeine, having something herbal. Herbals have such big chunks that it seems they can be less than consistent, especially when making smaller batches. Sometimes this one gives me a good citrus taste. Sometimes, I get more hibiscus. Always I get ginger though so that’s nice. But I think I prefer to make this is larger batches because then the tangerine bit is more noticeable, the hibiscus less. When the hibiscus is not strong, it adds a nice tartness that couples with the citrus to make a good tangerine taste. When the hibiscus is strong, it just makes my sinuses feel stuffy. Anyway, I made two big cups so I’m having a nice experience with this one tonight. Not overwhelmed by tart. Makes me want to up the rating. Which I’m not going to do because it will start to be somewhat yo-yo-like since I think the last time I had it I dropped the rating (small, hibiscus-laden batch).

By the way, finally got my tea pantry all straight again. It’s absurd. http://bit.ly/bnWuYU

Wow…yours outdoes mine by half! Now I don’t feel quite so bad about ordering more tea… >.>

Yes, order more tea! Help me feel less absurd! (I always look through takgoti’s cupboard on here to feel less nuts about my tea levels).

Erin

Oh, wow. That is impressive! So organized, too!

Stephanie

Wow, what a great selection! Is that basket in the corner the one that the Golden Moon sampler is in? I just ordered it last Thurday—can’t wait for it to arrive!

Auggy

Erin, thanks! I wish I could say it always looks that neat but I had just straightened it up – too much of it was on the kitchen table!
Stephani, it is indeed! Even though most of the GM sampler is gone, the basket is great to collect other samples!

Beautiful!!!

Ricky

Haha, wow it’s really grown since the last time I’ve seen it. Looks amazing though =]

Auggy

Haha! Thanks Jacqueline and Ricky!

I love your tins, too (on the right and the copper one on the left)… so pretty!

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I want your tea pantry!

Lauren, the copper one on the left (on top of the purple Bolder Breakfast) is a Tao of Tea tins from one of their special edition teas. The other copper ones are all Samovar tins. The tins on the right – if you mean the purple and pink washi tins, I got those on eBay from japanesqueaccents (though they don’t have anything for sale right now). I have a blue one floating around somewhere too (hidden on the left).
Chrine, hah! Well, if you are ever in the area, I’ll let you meander through it and we can have a tea party. :)

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
