drank Ginger Peach by Adagio Teas
181 tasting notes

First a disclaimer: I generally hate ginger. Okay, maybe ‘hate’ is too strong a word. It’s more of an intense dislike for anything more than a hint of ginger. In Japanese restaurants I don’t touch the pickled ginger that comes with the sushi. A weird couple exceptions I’ll make are for ginger candies and ginger tea (especially homemade ginger tisane, in which I boil the crap out of the fresh ginger, until it gets super-spicy). I hate cilantro too, but that’s a different story.

Anyway. I like this tea. The ginger’s not too strong, and I do get a little bit of the peach flavor coming through. I rinsed the leaves for about 15-20 seconds to wash out some of the caffeine. Looking forward to trying this iced.

Off topic- are you still on a sashimi-over-sushi binge or have you welcomed rolls back into your life?

Still get the sushi platter every time. No rolls, unless they come with the platter :)

I’ve had those ginger candies before – they are STRONG! I also am not a huge fan of cilantro, but in these meatballs? Freaking phenomenal.
