Brrrrr! It’s cold outside – minus twenty-three degrees celcius with the wind-chill factor and genius that I am I decided to walk to the grocery store. Needless to say after that lovely adventure I needed something to warm my insides up, so I decided that I’d try out this tea.

It’s not a loose-leaf tea – it only seems to come in H&S’s pyramid teabags as part of their ‘Historic Royal Palaces’ line. This tea doesn’t strike me as terribly British (I could be wrong but I don’t think they grow a lot of coconut trees over there) but whatever. Honestly I’m a bit underwhelmed by it – maybe it just needs more steeping time, but most of what I can taste is just the green tea – there’s maybe a little bit of coconut and a hint of something that tastes like lemongrass – but none of the titular ginger whatsoever.

I’ve got two more bags, so I’ll see if the flavour tastes stronger if it’s brewed for longer/hotter – I’ll hold off assigning this tea a rating until then.

It’s -23 C there and it’s not even really winter yet? I need a blanket just contemplating it.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
