drank Papaya Ginger by Tea Guys
296 tasting notes

This was one of the many of sample sizes I got with my Tea Guys order at the beginning of this year. This is the first one that I have tried and it’s really pleasantly scented! I brewed a cup hot for myself and then cold brewed the rest for my smoothies. The fruity cup of goodness is very strong on the papaya and pineapple. Maybe it was just my sample, but I hardly got any ginger notes to speak of.
This was a strong tea ices, and I could taste it very distinctly through my green smoothie. Not that it was a bad thing, I’m just used to my tea in my smoothies is be a very light addition to them.
I am glad to have tried this tea both ways, and while I cannot say that it would be my fist choice for a repurchase, it was lovely to test out!

Note: this is was a listing for a white blend, Tea Guys sells this as a green and white blend. I’ll make the update in a second.

Flavors: Green Beans, Pineapple, Tropical

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

LEAST Favorite Flavors/Flavorings
Herbs, if they are out of place (I’m talking to you, thyme)
Strong Bergamot
Chocolate (added flavorings)
Cloves/strong cinnamon

MOST Adored Flavor Profiles
Majority of chai
Stone fruit/melon

First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
