I bought this along with my Eggnogin’, mainly for completionist sake. I felt bad just getting one holiday tea! Leaving that poor little box of Ginger Snappish all alone… err, surrounded by dozens of other teas. Well, they’re only like $4 a box, so even if this was icky it’s not a waste of money. Yeah, this is how I justify my crazy tea buying habits.
I’ve had this tea 3 nights in a row now, so yea, I think it’s money well spent! I read a lot of the past reviews and I think they changed the formula—I definitely get a gingersnap vibe. The ginger is very strong with backing notes of cinnamon, giving it a tasty, bake-y feel. As close to gingersnap as you can get in a bagged tea, I think! And while the lemon is there it is VERY toned down, just the mildest hint of citrus which makes it seem pretty unique and special.
I was a bit worried that this would be similar to Twinnings’ Lemon & Ginger (my go-to sick day tea) but it’s really quite different and perfectly seasonal! One of my favorite night-time teas so far, plus the ease of making it is definitely a bonus.
