drank Lemon and Ginger by Twinings
470 tasting notes

This is one of those teas you’re not really “supposed” to love. Not only is it bagged tea, it’s bagged tea you can find in pretty much any supermarket. Not even in a fancy pyramid bag! But my stomach is killing me tonight, and to be honest no other tea soothes an upset stomach or a sore throat (both of which are ailing me) like this. It’s just… lemon and ginger! If I’m feeling a bit less under the weather I’ll cut up some fresh ginger root and boil it with lemon… but really, this tastes almost identical with a dollop of honey. Plus it actually resteeps well: I leave the bag in and just refill my cup 2-3 times with boiling water. Also, no bitterness from the ginger even if the bag sits in water for 15+ minutes! This is really the ideal low-maintenance tea for me.

Thanks! I’m hoping it is just allergies—those trees are out to get me this year.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
