I really enjoy the flavor of ginger teas, but sometimes, the ginger is just too strong, and others, the ginger is too light. With this blend from Hampstead Tea, I’m finding the amount of ginger to be just right. Not too peppery, but just enough kick to make for a vibrant, lively cuppa.
The green tea base tastes fresh. It has a moderate astringency and a crisp, light grassy taste. The ginger starts out mild, but develops as I continue to sip. By mid-cup, the flavor of the ginger has developed a pleasing, gentle warmth without being too spicy.
It is not only tasty, but it is also soothing. A nice cuppa to enjoy after a meal, or any time of day when you want something light and rejuvenating!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
