I can’t say I really care for the dry or steeped scent all too much here, and this tea strikes me as one someone would only drink if they’re feeling under the weather. That said, I ordered this for Lex because she is one to drink things for the betterment of her health, even if she doesn’t enjoy the taste (which is so not me haha).

There is a significantly better taste than scent here. The ginger is a bit muted, which I prefer. Ginger-forward teas are generally not my favourite. The lemongrass adds a nice dimension to the taste, and although I’m unsure what these separate tulsi plants taste like, there is a subtle sweetness at the end of each sip that makes me happy I didn’t add additional sweetener (which I did consider).

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
