Two things I can taste in this tea:

1. Pu-erh earthly, mellow, thick

I like ginger and especially like on sick days or times I feel bloated. This tea is probably the best ginger tea I’ve tried for packing a delicious punch.


If I hadn’t tried DAVIDsTEA’s “The Skinny” first, I would of been in love with this tea. The thing is “The Skinny” is very similar as it’s pu-erh and ginger, but it also has much more complexity with oolong and citrus notes rounding out the flavour compared to “Pu-erh Ginger”.

My first sip of this tea was "Awww.. it’s The Skinny, but not as good. Wowza, lots of ginger! >.< "

IMO, I’d just stick to “The Skinny”. I purchased “Pu-erh Ginger” as it was onsale on Boxing day. I don’t think I’ll buy more of this tea.
However, I think this tea would pull off an interesting latte (almost chai effect) and it is very no-frills on being somewhat simple and potent.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
