When I was a small child, I wanted to be a paleontologist. I had all the books on dinosaurs, and gingko biloba always featured in them as part of the environmental motif. To this day, in my mind, it's a "dinosaur plant", which would make this dinosaur tea. Look, just humour me on this.
The leaves are a dark forest green and look a fair bit like tea leaves, though the aroma in the bag has a strong herbal and nutty aroma, very "Chinese medicine".
The liquor is a dingy gold with an earthy aroma with an edge of haw fruit underneath. The taste is musty and herbal, with a slight suggestion of sweet fruits, haw and lemon underneath. There's a medicinal aftertaste with a bitter note.
I've been trying to look up some hard evidence over whether ginkgo is actually a stimulant, but most websites I'm finding are more into the hippy-dippy "drink a cup of this and it'll cure your asthma and alzheimers!" I guess I'll have to do my own testing, see if it'll get me up and going in the morning.
