1.5 tsp for 250mL water, 82 degree water, 4-minute steep.

It helps. Any steaming hot beverage will, of course, but I did find the lemon and ginger very soothing. I could not taste the licoreice, which is fine. as I don’t care much for licorice. The tea itself started to get bitter at the 4-minute mark.

It’s hard to rate this one fairly, as I am too congested to taste properly, and as my throat’s got that fire-on-sandpaper thing going. But it did give me a little boost — I just feel a bit happier after drinking it — and who couldn’t use a little extra green tea and ginger in their diet?

Definitely worth a try when miserable, but I’d have gone for the dicontinued Electric Ginger (is that was it was called? a lemon and ginger tea from DavidsTea back in the winter) instead, if I could.

Rating: 75.

La la lemon? I can’t remember if that had ginger though. I feel like there was an Electric Lemon as well. Might even have some of it still in the stash. Hmm…that might help kick my cold out.

Electric Lemon.
I remember it fondly…

Electric Lemon. Yeah, that was the gear. And it’s not on their Bring It Back From the Dead feature. Weh. (I’m voting for Lemon Cream Pie there.)

Uniquity

I think it is on the Bring it Back from the Dead List. Sort of in the middle right on a smaller sized tombstone.

Wicked! Thanks so much!

I keep switching which one I vote for. Mojito, Backed Apple, Through the Grapevine, Blazing Strawberries? So many to choose! Plus a few that pre-date my time with Davids Tea

Mojito!? I need to go vote.

Uniquity

Oh man. I would buy so much if mojito came back…

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
