This came as a sample in a holiday gift Lexa ordered for me (I guess I’ll have new tea under the tree this year :P).

The dry sachet smells intensely of ginger. The steeped tea smells a bit nicer to me with ginger still being the dominant note, but some other spices and maybe a hint of what I can consider a tea-ified gingerbread cookie.

Drinking this hot and the ginger is much more muted in the drink, which is nice, but I can’t decipher any of the other ingredients. I am enjoying this tea, but I couldn’t tell you why haha. On the upside, I actually forgot this was a rooibos base at all, which is an excellent thing. What a fascinating experience!

Lex just tasted my cup and despised it haha!

As the tea cooled, it became more and more almost perfumily ginger. I actually ended up dumping the last of my cup. No thank you.

Oh no! Well at least it was only a single sachet. ;)

Very true!And still always happy to try out anything new — it’s never a bad thing to not have so much tea to order XD.

This is one that I got as a sample sachet in a previous order, and I liked it so much that I ordered a huge tin of it the next time. Unfortunately, I no longer loved it quite so much, so that wasn’t the most fun to finish.

Oh I LOVE this one, but ginger is one of my hated ingredients, so that’s weird.

Courtney

That is bizarre!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
