Oh! I think I like this one! There is a bit of ginger in there, but it is more of a sweet ginger as opposed to a ginger with bite or kick. I’m usually one for very strong ginger, but this works well here. There is a little smoke, but it isn’t overpowering or dominating at all. This tea seems really well rounded to me. I’m really enjoying this one!

What a weird combination! I’m always amazed at how tea makers think these kinds of combinations up and turn them into success when I just look at the name and go “No way….really? But are they serious?” That, of course, usually leads to “Well, now I have to try it because it can’t possibly be good…”

Sounds yummy!

I have always liked odd flavors, so when I see something strange or unusual I want to try it. Have you ever seen the book The Flavor Bible? It’s awesome! It’s like a dictionary of different common ingredients and what other flavors are known to pair well with it. I come up with some interesting food combos with it. Last night I made lobster pizza with alfredo sauce topped with coconut shavings, truffle oil and kaffir lime powder. I should have used more kaffir lime and truffle oil, but I think it turned out pretty good! I wonder if tea makers use that book too.

The Cookie Lady

Whoa! I’ve heard of that book, but I didn’t know it was like that or could inspire food like that! My goodness. Sounds like you’d be a good person to have in the Sweet + Savory Tea and Recipes TTB I’ve been thinking about putting together!

Dustin

That is a really interesting idea for a box! So is all the tea supposed to be sweet and savory or either sweet or savory? I can’t think of any teas that I have had that were both!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
