Tea of the Week for January 4, 2016!

The inspiration for this tea is actually one of our start-up Kickstarter backers that purchased a “create a tea of the week” option when she contributed to that campaign (thank you!) – she wanted a Yuzu Ginger Macaron Cookie Tea and she wasn’t sure if she wanted that with our White Peony base or our green tea blend. She told me that she’d leave that decision to me so I tested out both bases with these flavors and I ultimately decided that the White Peony tea made a better base for these flavors. The Yuzu fruit notes were not as well defined with the green tea – but with the white tea you get a juicy, citrus-y burst of flavor that’s tart and tangy, a wee bit sweet and a wee bit bitter – just like the Yuzu itself.

The ginger adds a warm dimension of flavor and I’m even getting a slight almond-y meringue note that evoke thoughts of a delicate macaron cookie. I gotta admit that when I was given this cookie tea challenge, I was more than just a little worried because Yuzu is not a flavor that I’m very familiar with and I worried that I wouldn’t do right by the Yuzu fruit. And whether or not I actually have done that – I’ll leave it for you to decide after you’ve tasted it. As for me, I’m quite pleased with how this turned out.

Mastress Alita’s Monthly Sipdown Challenge
February 2022 → A tea with a name that begins with a Periodic Table abbreviation

My Periodic Table abbreviation is Y for Yttrium, and so I chose Yuzu Ginger Macaron White Tea from 52Teas. I love this prompt for the Periodic Table – I may come back to it again before the month is out. So unique!

I wasn’t really feeling this one today, but not because the tea wasn’t flavorful. The ginger was strong and I even got that cookie flavor at the end of the sip. I think I was probably in the mood for something else, just couldn’t figure out what it was, and this poor tea was left neglected on the counter because of it.

I really love the soft ginger and yuzu flavors in this tea. I can even taste the cookie likeness though I find that cookie is very hard for me to taste in teas. I think that the white peony really helps with the cookie likeness since a good peony can have a bit of a nutty taste that often makes me think of cookies. And the best part is that there is no funky aftertaste. It is a delicious tea with great flavoring. All of the January teas have been really good.
