drank Orange & Ginger by Lupicia
111 tasting notes

So have I mentioned that I love ginger? Yeah, this one has been sitting on my wishlist for a while. It finally arrived in the mail yesterday, so I was eager to try a cup.

As expected, this is a well-balanced tea. Like many of Lupicia’s flavored blacks, I find the base to be on the light side, and very smooth for a black tea. The ginger is strong, especially in the scent of the dry leaf— to the point that it had an almost chemical smell to it, when I first opened the bag. But that sharpness softened out once the tea was brewed, and the orange aroma became more prominent. I like that the orange adds some sweetness to this tea… I find that ginger on its own can be pretty harsh and earthy, so the citrus note makes it more accessible. (It’s not a super-sweet tea, though, by any means! I’ll have to try it with a little sugar or honey sometime.) A nice tea for lovers of citrus and/or ginger, and useful for warming up as the weather gets cooler.

I’m a writer who drinks tea to survive the creative process. A few years ago, I discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I’ve been hoarding all kinds of tea ever since!

My favorite teas change by the day. I usually drink them unsweetened, without milk. I like white and green teas, but I tend to prefer black and oolong these days. Rooibos can be hit-or-miss, same with herbals. (I mostly avoid blends with hibiscus, as I find it too tart, and I’m not a huge mint fan.) But I love when I find a good herbal that I can enjoy when I don’t want caffeine. I’m actively searching for tasty blends with chamomile in them.

I enjoy both flavored and straight teas. Some of my favorite flavors are vanilla, spice, apple, orange, chocolate, and peach. I’m obsessed with ginger. Seriously. I’ve been known to add extra ginger to teas that already have absurd amounts of spice in them. You’ve been warned. ;)
