Commercial Description

According to traditional Chinese Medicine, Pu-erh tea has a warm and energizing property. It is known to dispel grease and toxins from a diet rich in meat and cholesterol. Our blend of Organic Ginger and Organic Pu-erh was inspired by an ancient herbal formula used as a “beauty aid” and “slimming tea” in Asia. The zesty notes of orange and ginger complement the rich, smooth flavors of Pu-erh.

Not sure about this one. I like the ginger. It's got a nice kick, which I enjoy, but the overall taste is a little weak. I brewed according to the directions, and steeped at the high end of the time range,

If I have enough left, I'll try using 1.5x to 2x the tea per 8 oz next time. I want to like this a little more because I love ginger so much.

This is a very interesting tea. It's got the body of a black/breakfast tea, but a flavor I prefer over that kind. The ginger works well with the pu-erh, which has an almost raw fish-like aroma and flavor that is better than that description might make it sound. This tea works really well with food.

Quite good! Rich and warming, yet zesty and fresh.

I tend to not like most fermented Pu-erh, and I am especially not fond of Pu-erh blends, but the only other blend including fermented Pu-erh that I like is produced by Rishi (their Vanilla mint Pu-erh), so I thought I'd give this one a chance too. And I liked it!

The dominant quality here is ginger, but it's not overwhelming. The ginger is very aromatic, but the peppery / hot quality of the ginger is only moderate. The base Pu-erh is earthy and rich. This produces a very dark infusion that is full-bodied, and I think much more interesting than most pure ripened (shou) Pu-erh. The orange zest is almost undetectable--and is more of the quality of dried orange peel, less of the candied orange or fruity quality that some orange-flavored teas have. I find the orange blends seamlessly with the Pu-erh and ginger.

A bit pricey, for a blend of this type, especially when compared to Rishi's pure teas in a similar price range, but extremely well-executed. Rishi has not disappointed me with a single one of their flavored teas, and from someone who tends to favor pure teas, that leaves me feeling very solidly impressed.
