drank PETITE OURSE by THE O DOR
2562 tasting notes

Well, this is bizarre. A while back I saw a review of this here, probably the one by Mastress Alita, and thought it sounded delicious. The more I thought about it, the more convinced I was that I had tried it, possibly as a sample that came with an order.

Later I was going through my tins of The Odor looking for Perseus when I saw that I have a whole tin of this and it is nearly full, but it must be a few years old now.

Youngest thinks we had this together last March but I am not sure because when I came on here tonight, it still wasn’t even listed in my cupboard!

So here we go!

This is Chinese green tea with ginger and mandarin and you need it right now because it is delicious. I am not a fan of ginger. I use it sparingly in cooking and there a few dishes that I feel really really need it, but I don’t like it when hot ginger bites my tongue and makes my mouth burn. Ashman did ask me if there was mint in this so I guess he noticed the ginger tingle, but he didn’t seem bothered by it.

This is tingly but not hot, and overall it is just a perfectly balanced flavored green tea.

Served tonight with Asian buffet style mushrooms that were so good I am saving up for a ring so I can propose to myself.

My usual prep for big pots – steeped it twice and combined the two in a large tetsubin. All 36 ounces gone bu end of supper.

Ah yes, I had a sample of this courtesy of Dustin not long ago and enjoyed it! (I am a big ginger fan and use it in my cooking a lot, but I am definitely a spice wuss and have to keep it in the “warming but not throat/tongue-burny” territory.)

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
