G is for… Gingered Plum!
I can’t remember what I’ve thought of this tea in the past, but yesterday when I had it warm, I was pretty ambivalent about it. Nothing really distinctive, just a cup of tea. Today, after sitting out overnight, I’m enjoying it much more – there’s a really delicious creaminess in the aftertaste which follows some nice candied ginger flavours. On the initial sip, I get a bit of ginger but also almost a licorice flavour, which I’m not fond of, but this aftertaste is just stellar. It’s really interesting how some flavours show up like that, although I prefer a tea that tastes good both on the initial sip and in the aftertaste. It looks like I got a large size of this tea when I purchased it, so I’m glad that I do actually enjoy it!
