So, almost out of this, and I don’t think I’ll be making it a repeat purchase.

I love pu’erh and orange/citrus tea. The earthy-ness of pu’erh is so calming and relaxing and pu’erh is one of my favourite teas for a reason. But I don’t get any oolong taste in this, and, well, if you told me there was ginger in this before I’d read the label, I don’t think I would believe you for one second. Maybe the point is ‘benefits of the ginger’ and not ‘flavour of the ginger’, but still, with something that has extra ginger flavouring on top of the ginger root, you’d think you’d be able to taste it.

I have enjoyed what I’ve had of this, but my first impression still stands: I think I’ll stick with Blood Orange Pu’erh to get my fill of earthy citrus tea.

Bio

Canadian tea addict! Also a fandom nerd and perpetual student. My favourites are greens (genmaicha and a good jasmine), pu’erh (any kind—I love pu’erh), lapsang souchong, yerba mate, and guayusa. I almost seem to be one of the lone Pukka fans of Steepster, but I’m all right with that.

It’s been about two years since I’ve done anything on Steepster, but we’ll see if I find myself moved to post anything here on out. Till then, whenever that may be!
