I haven’t made a tasting note in a while. I’ve been drinking tea, but it’s the same old, same old teas. Nothing new to write about. But last night I woke up around 2:30am with a horrid sore throat. I got some water and went back to sleep and just kinda dozed until the alarm went off at 6. It has gotten progressively worse. Maybe should have made some Clary tea from whispering Pines or some Cold 911 from David’s, but a friend suggested a ginger tea. I thought, what the heck, and made this one.

Ah, delight. Soothing warm tea on raw throat. If your throat feels like it has a six-sided pebble stuck in it, I can recommend this tea.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
