Sweet, spicy, refreshing…is there anything tastier than a good ginger beer? Since its introduction in 18th century Britain, this fizzy, golden drink has been a hit everywhere from the lunch counter to the cocktail bar. And with warming ginger and sweet apple, this tasty blend is our take on the classic. We love sipping it after a heavy meal, or to soothe a sore throat. Up for experimenting? Brew it strong and top up with sparkling water and a splash of vodka, for a twist on a Moscow Mule. Cheers!

This definitely has a strong flavor of ginger, but while it has a nice spicy kick and a bit of fruitiness, it seems a little lacking in flavor. It’s not as interesting as the plain dried ginger I recently bought. I’ll happily drink it, but won’t spend my money on more.

Im so sad I only discovered this a few weeks before learning it was being discontinued! This is something I would never have picked by myself, but I ended up at David’s at the mall while I was getting a cold and wanted something spicy and the sales girl recommended this. And it turned out being great! To me its like a watered down apple juice, with a spike of of spicy ginger…which becomes stronger and stronger the more you let it steep. but its very soothing…sweet but spicy at the same time. The only problem with this tea is it takes a lot more per use..you really need to use at least a full tbsp per serving…so you end up finishing a package very quickly. But I wish it would have stuck around, I’ve tried some other ginger teas from Davids and none have the sweetness balance right like this one does.
I am a huge fan of ginger beer and ginger flavor in general, so I love this tea. Yesterday, I put some into my Teavana travel tumbler and let it steep for the entirety of my ~30 min commute to school. By the time I got to class, my tea was perfectly spicy with strong ginger flavor. If this were made as a tea pop, I could see it tasting almost exactly like ginger beer!
If you’re not a fan of such a strong ginger flavor, I would recommend steeping this tea for only a few minutes – this allows some of the other flavors to shine alongside the ginger.
A surprisingly similar Ginger Beer flavor, even without the fizz (although i could see it being eery if it was made as a tea pop). I liked it, but didn’t LOVE it, perhaps it was just a bit too sweet and apple-y for me, which I’ve learned I’m not much of a fan of in my teas or juices.

Hello Steepster. It’s been a while, huh?
So I recently got an email from DavidsTea saying, “Hey, we miss you! Here’s $10 off a $60 purchase.” And I was like, “Okay, I’m convinced.”
See, the reason I was gone so long was because I felt like my tea acquisition needed to stop, at least for a little while. Good tea is not cheap, and I had so much tea. And it’s only me drinking it, really, so it takes a while to get through everything. I still haven’t managed to drink away my stash, but I’m the sort of person that craves new experiences. My drinking had slowed down because I was bored by having the same teas available all the time. I know, so fickle. I also can’t handle more than 2 cups of caffeinated teas a day. That makes it harder to drink away all the delicious oolongs and greens I’ve accumulated.
So when I got that email, I was sort of jostled out of my bored tea rut. David was telling me, “hey, you haven’t bought anything in a while. Why not? Here’s a coupon!”
So here I am with a lot of new tea. I am so excited. I got a lot of non-caffeinated stuff. Some were old favorites, but this one was new. I actually brewed my own ginger beer once. It’s not bad, but I’m not a fan of fizzy drinks. This tea however! It captures all the best of a ginger beer. I bet it would be delicious iced, but it’s also delightful hot. The light ginger warmth soothes my sore throat and the fruit bits add sweetness. It actually tastes like it’s bubbly without feeling bubbly. Nice. I like it more than I expected to. Too bad it’s a fruit tea. Those often go so quickly as it takes a lot to brew a good cup.
Ah well, I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
