Strange VariaTEA TTB – Tea #3
There were two lonely little sachets of this in the box, and I like mate and ginger so I figured I would give it a try!
I quite like it, actually. The ginger is definitely the strongest ingredient, but it doesn’t burn my throat or anything extreme. Then I taste a gentle lemon note and the earthiness from the mate and/or guarana. I would guess there was turmeric here as well, which there doesn’t appear to be. I don’t really get matcha, though I didn’t see evidence of that when it was steeping either, and thankfully I don’t taste much licorice root. Ginseng… maybe a hint?
Anyway, I found it rather pleasant, and am surprised by how extreme a reaction some other steepers had ha ha. Maybe these sachets were older and had calmed down a bit! I would consider having some of this on hand, especially for sore throats, upset stomachs, or sickness in general. But it seems DT doesn’t offer this tea anymore anyway.
