So I had the flu… (I think? it was an odd one if it was) and this tea made it allll better. Oh yes it did!!!
On any normal day, I despise ginger. It is my food nemesis! It taints anything it touches… (except gingerbread cookies. Who doesn’t love those?!)
…But when I’m sick? well yeee haw! I love it!!
I consider it the only perk of being sick… all the teas I can’t tolerate for fear of drowning my palate in the pungent biting root are suddenly my best friend! and then it makes me better?!
Oh and my fear of pu-erh? Yeah, when I’m sick, that’s gone to…

now, I’ll never have the courage to try this when I’m a healthy human, so my rating is based on my flu-meter :)
Oh yah the tea…
So it was not as gingery as I expected, and I did need to add some honey so that the pu-erh didn’t come through so bitter… but I was really surprised about the creamy aspect that revealed itself as the cup cooled. Mmmmm.
I hope they don’t ever get rid of this one. I don’t get sick often enough to warrant buying any, but I’m so glad to know it’s around just in case!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
