drank Gingered Peach by Kally Tea
1329 tasting notes

1000th note right here!
So I thought I’d do something special with it and chose to make gingered peach potato pancakes with my Aunt. I love cooking with her.
And the pancakes… oh my! It was quite yummy. The ginger really shines through, while the peach added that sweet zing that really made the pancakes pop. Sour cream and sugar (traditional way to serve it) made it almost like a peaches and cream dessert. Yum!!
My Aunt quite enjoyed the tea as well, so I gave her the rest of my packet (seeing as I don’t like it at all!)
Spending the day with my aunt was fun. We had a great time!
Oh and we also made Strawberry Pu-erh pancakes but those came first and we made a few errors when prepping so they were less flavourful. I wish we hadn’t used up the last of my sample on that. Oh well, I can always grab more.

So, did you infuse or blend the tea in? I’ve only ever infused in liquid and then added to my batter.

Bonnie

Oh, HAPPIEST 1000!!!!!!!

Thanks Bonnie!! :D
I let the cut up potatoes sit in the tea for an hour or so and then drained it. Since the recipe doesn’t call for any liquid we couldn’t actually add it to the batter, sadly!

Dinosara

We should have prizes for 1000 or something. I think you should have a wish (can I guess?). Wouldn’t be tea would it.

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
