drank Ginger's Oolong by Harney & Sons
12 tasting notes

The dry leaves smell strongly of ginger and tea, but oddly enough I thought I smelled coffee notes when it was brewed up. The aroma is mostly ginger, but the tea smell is also very strong. The coffee aroma went away once the tea cooled down a bit, which was kind of wierd to me. I don’t have alot of experience with oolongs, but to me this tastes like a milder black tea, with absolutly no bitterness whatsoever, which I love. I’m a ginger fanatic and the smell of ginger is not as strong as the taste, so the next time I brew this up I think I will toss a couple slices of fresh ginger in the water first to kick it up a notch. Overall tasty and well balanced, with both the tea and ginger coming through roughly equally, but personally I would prefer a stronger, spicier flavor.

Flavors: Ginger, Tea

Hello person reading this! I’m a lover of flavored teas, especially ones from Harney and Sons. I generally perfer black, but flavored white, green or oolong can be fun too, even herbals. I think that decaffinated teas are weird though, thats the one thing not in my cabinets at anytime. I live in NYC so I am close to some pretty cool tea shops, and am a Med student who hates coffe, so need the caffine burst of large quantities of tea. I’m bascially on here to find some new teas to try, and maybe do a swap or two!
