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.
