I didn’t mind the flavor of this so much, although it tasted like ginger, and not ginseng. And not really like green tea much at all. The problem for me is that it completely dried out the back of my throat to the point where I felt a nagging tickle back there. I did make it through about 2/3 of the cup before I just couldn’t stand the dry feeling anymore, and got up to go make a cup of Den’s sencha. Now I have to decide what to do with the rest of this – if anyone in the US or Canada wants it send me a message!

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
