drank Orange Ginger by Samovar
23 tasting notes

My taste buds have always been overly sensitive to spices, so this one was just a little too gingery for me. It could have something to do with my getting distracted by the latest episode of Desperate Housewives and steeping it for a couple of minutes longer than I meant to…

My second steep was about half the time of the first, and the ginger was much more manageable — though I can’t tell if it’s because I steeped it for less time or because the ginger is naturally more mellow on the second steep.

More experimentation is required! I may try mixing this one with the oolong I just bought.

I love giraffes, reading on my Kindle, 80’s music, and learning taiko.

I’m a huge GLEEK!

I have a thing about multiples of five.
