drank Tulsi Lemon Ginger by Organic India
980 tasting notes

I was thinking this was going to be a very spicy tea based on the smell of the bag, but it turned out to be a mellow brew. The liquor was a cloudy almost neon spring green. Taste was well balanced between tame ginger, lemon and herbs. Seemed minty. Totally inoffensive, light and smooth.

Flavors: Ginger, Herbs, Lemon, Mint

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 295 ML

My favorite lemon ginger is Davidson Tea’s Tulsi Lemon Ginger. Tulsi has those natural peppery/citrusy flavors (and yes, that dash of mint!) that just accompanies the lemon and ginger flavors so perfectly.

I could see this tea being up your alley. I couldn’t find ingredients listed on the Organic India website, but in the product description on Amazon, it seems like lemongrass provides the lemon note in this one. I’d be interested in trying Davidson’s since they use lemon balm instead, which, as you and I agree, is superior to lemongrass :P

Even better than lemon balm, the Devidson Tea one uses lemon myrtle which is my favorite of the citrus herbs! I recently sipped mine down because the zip-pouch did that thing where it comes loose from the side of the bag so even if you “zip it” shut air can still get in so I wanted to finish it off so it wouldn’t go stale. And since I’m on hiatus, I’m not restocking it at the moment. When I’m buying tea again, I’ll get another bag, though.

Whoops, I stand corrected. I have a short circuit regarding lemon balm and myrtle. That does make it sound even better!

Abandoned the rating system again. Too much work.

Great tea is unforgettable. Good tea is sometimes forgettable. Mediocre tea is forgettable unless I’ve drank enough of it to form an impression. Bad tea is unforgettable, unfortunately.
