drank Orange Ginger by Samovar
911 tasting notes

My ginormous Samovar order came in today and I’m so happy I ordered a tin of this! It’s what the Rishi Tangerine Ginger should have been – gingery warm, citrusy bright, fresh, cuddly, sweet, tangy, a hint of woodsy – not tart or phlegm-inducing or something that brings to mind Thera-Flu. I think I could easily become addicted to this tea.

Oooh! I have this in my Samovar cart as we speak…just waiting until Friday to buy it. :)

Oooh what else did you get in your order? I’m putting together one for next time I buy.

Lena, I really love this one. It’s probably one of the best herbals I’ve ever had. The husband agrees that it is great for an herbal but he doesn’t love any herbal, even this one. Ah, the divisiveness of herbals!
katers, I got Downy Sprout, Russian blend, Breakfast blend, Ryokucha, Lemon Yunnan, Scarlet Sable, TKY, Jasmine Peach Bai Mudan and this one. Biiiig order! :)

katers

Wow! Did you get samples of some of those or tins of everything? I’m putting together a sampler order because I’ve never tried any of the Samovar teas. I’ve heard you can only make one cup out of them but I don’t know.

Ryokucha, Royal Garland. Those are winners. I seriously grieve when I run out of Royal Garland. I like the Downy Sprout (though it’s very subtle)…and the Osmanthus Silver Needle is growing on me too.

Auggy

katers, I got all tins, mostly the large size! I’ve had them all before though and know I love them.
sophistre, Running out of Ryokucha and the Breakfast blend is what spurred this order on. (Ryokucha is my crack.) Though Royal Garland is another favorite… I’m just not out of it (yet!)

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.
