I love lemon and ginger teas. I also love green tea. Keeping this in mind, and knowing that cold season is definitely upon us, one of the employees of DavidsTea recommended this tea to me. One whiff and I was sold. So much lemon-y goodness, between the lemongrass and lemon myrtle. The ginger smelled wonderful, and I knew it would be soothing for those scratchy-throat days. :)

Brought the little 25 g bag home and smelled it again. Just as enticing. However, I was a little apprehensive when I learned that there is licorice root in the tea. I am DEFINITELY not a licorice fan. Even fennel and sambuca are off the table for me, and they’re not even real licorice! But, since I couldn’t smell the licorice in the tea, I hoped I wouldn’t taste it once it was brewed.

Turned out that I couldn’t, which was great! (+1 for uneducated palate!) What I could taste was ginger, lovely mild green tea, and so much lemon-y awesomeness from the lemongrass and myrtle. Loved it. Felt great for my throat and left me feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Definitely repeats for me :)
