Numi: Water Sprite Ginger Oolong

May 19, 2006


Numi Water SpriteI grabbed a sampler package of Numi teas on recommendation, and I’m having fun with them so far. I came in to work with a tummy-ache this morning, so the Water Sprite tea won out, containing just two ingredients: Shui Hsein Oolong Tea and Chinese Ginger.

The scent of the tea before brewing was a very sharp ginger tang. I gave it a 7-minute infusion because I was really going for the soothing properties of ginger. I usually put both lemon and honey in my straight ginger tea to take out the “bite.” But the ginger hid itself away after infusion. The aroma blossomed with oolong, and there was no bite at all. The taste was smooth, with a medium astringency.

I actually found it a little bland, so I added agave nectar, and it really coaxed the ginger flavor back into the mix, and now I have a lovely cup of oolong with a sweet ginger overtone, and my tummy is calm.

Numi gets thumbs up for their social and environmental responsibility. You can see the details on the Responsible Tea page.

The Struggle of Making Content Interesting & A Few Unhelpful Phrases

May 18, 2019 0 Comments

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
