This is one of the 3 teas in my regular office lineup. I drink this after a heavy lunch or on those days when I need some calm for my tummy. I love the ginger and citrus notes. I’ve even gotten some of my coworkers trying and buying this tea. When I travel, I usually bring this tea and the Organic Pu’erh Ginger (DavidsTea) to help with digesting the different foods and to curb the travel nausea.

I usually fill a tea bag up with about 3 tsp and use the same tea bag for 3 steepings throughout the day.

I got this tea way back in 2008 and I finally just finished the tea now. S’what happens when things get “organized” in the pantry, I guess. You knew where everything was, then BOOM. Complete disorganization that is masquerading as organization. Ugh.

So. This tea isn’t gross. It’s not good, but it’s not gross. I think I probably liked it significantly more back in 2008 and even 2009, but I can’t say I’m disappointed it’s gone.

The pu’erh gives off a slight fishy-smell, but less than a straight pu’erh would. The ginseng in it always reminds me of the taste of bacon…no idea why. But a fresh cup of this tea always reminds me of bacon. I can taste the citrus a little at the beginning; it starts to become more obvious as the tea cools slightly.

It’s OK. I won’t be refilling the tin with The Skinny.

My favorite oolong! although Prairie Berry is pretty tasty too! I love the orange in it. It isn’t overpowering at all. This tea is soo good and I love that I can get 2-3 steeps out of it!

Not my favourite tea. I like it a lot better then Detox however. I needed something after this weekend of going out and eating not the greatest foods. Its the perfect tea to help calm your stomach. I prefer the second steeping of this tea so I tend to rinse the tea before I steep it. I really like the slight hint of orange favour in the tea.

I love to drink this tea when I’ve eaten too much and my stomach hurts! I think it is caffein free… which is great for after dinner. I don’t actually believe that it causes or helps one loose weight, but I believe it helps with digestion. Its smells and tastes citrus-y but isn’t exactly fruity, it has a deeper stronger taste as well. I always have lots of it on hand.

My first time tasting a pu’erh tea.. and I have to say I am not impressed. I couldn’t drink more then a sip or two, It was gross iced, and the second steep was even worse. I can’t blame DavidsTea though, as I am NOT a ginger fan, nor do I think that I am a pu’erh fan. Too bad I bought 50g… oops ;)

Lemon. Why am I getting lemon from this? The tin says orange peel but my taste buds say “Lemonnnnn!”. Anyway, I find this tea fine. I neither want to sing from the rooftops about it, nor send it down to the bowels of hell. This one’s a refreshing cup, not a comforting cup. Supposedly, the eleuthero root is an adaptogen, which is meant to help your body adjust to stress. I don’t drink it enough to know whether or not that’s true, but there you go.

It took some convincing for me to try this since I don’t like ginger but you can’t really taste the ginger and it’s become one of my favourites- especially for when I have a sore belly!

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!
