drank Detox by Two Hills Tea

Quarantined and away from home, so I grabbed some of this from London Drugs, expecting little. I think it should be called Ginger Puer or something along those lines — unsure why it’s called Detox. Anyway…

This is one STRONG tea. Holy moly. Three minute steep (forgot to rinse, and should have), and I’m bouncing off the walls. VERY strong ginger in here, the most bite I’ve found so far. When I opened the bag it looked like powdered ginger with some tea added (seriously) so I knew this would be potent stuff. I still should have rinsed this first, because it’s smelling a bit musty to me. Now, I realize this is a puer, however this isn’t a “good” smell, or one that I normally associated with puer.

Next time: trying it with a shorter steep and a rinse first.

Flavors: Earth, Ginger, Mushrooms

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

My guess for the detox name would be pu’erh’s “effects” on the digestive system.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
