When I first got this tea I didn’t like it. I thought there was more of a dirt taste than anything else. After giving it another try a few months later, it has become my favorite after lunch tea. It has a nice earthy ginger taste. I enjoy it while working. I guess my palate is improving.

mostly oolong and pu’erh. sounds fancy but the latter is old school tea that’s more bitter-tasting. drank it lots but i’m not skinny!

I’m not a huge fan of oolong personally, but this one was alright. Light, earthy ginger flavor. Personally, I like my ginger stronger and sweeter :)

I can’t believe I hadn’t tried this until today! Based on the smell my expectations weren’t very high, but this tea proved me wrong. I loved the mellow ginger. Not at all overpowering.I had this a little sweetened and it was delicious. If only it weren’t caffeinated-otherwise the warm, spicy flavour would be perfect for the evening. Has just enough of a kick to be interesting but not so much it needs to be drowned in sweetener.

I LOVE oolong, and am scared of Pu’erh – with the exception of Coffee Pu’erh which feels like I’m cheating… This has an interesting taste of orange and the earthy pu’erh! I don’t like ginger, and didn’t taste it in this tea. It settled my stomach and had a pleasant taste! I’m glad I bought a tin :)

When I’m sick a cup of the skinny soothes my throat, but when I’m looking to drink something before a big meal I make a big jug of it iced and voila no more room for the extra piece of dessert. I prefer it iced and sweetened. Don’t let it steep for too long or the ginger will overpower the tea.

I tried this at the Grant Park mall this morning and YUCK! It was served cool but I don’t think hot/cold would make any difference.

Tried this after someone suggested it, tastes alot lighter than I expected it would based on the smell, but I am a big fan of oolong and really do enjoy the subtle earthy blend with citrus and ginseng. :)

A really pleasant, calming tea. Reminds me of ‘Mothers Little Helper’ (Davids) and ‘That Time of the Month’ from theteashop. I was originally turned off this tea because of its name. I don’t want to think about “weight loss” while enjoying a soothing tea and no tea will make you lose weight. But I got a bit in my Christmas advent sampler and really enjoyed it.
