I left this to steep at least an hour, in the hopes it would make me feel better. Oh gosh, this is a great ginger tea. It’s very spicy, with several layers to the heat and flavors. Mind you, you’d have to love turmeric to love this as well – it’s almost more a turmeric tea than a ginger one at this point. Regardless, I love it – I think my new favorite ginger tea.
Wish I’d written down the ingredient list on this one; I’ll just have to grab more! This is box #2 so far of this, and I’m finding it a decent, if boring, cuppa before bed. Why this tea? Well, in Ireland, this is what’s readily available in every corner store without any sort of caffeination, and I love both ginger and lemon. Nothing fancy (nor expensive), I can count on this to settle me.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
This definitely tastes like a crisp, green apple. If you like apple tea, I’d put this at the top of the list to try, especially at the price point. Apple tea isn’t terribly high on my list though (unless perhaps it’s a baked apple crumble), so my rating is just okay.
Flavors: Green Apple
If you get tea at a shop or restaurant in Ireland, this is most likely what you’ll be offered. It also lines the shelves in plentiful supply at every grocer, Spar, or Dunnes. So of course, I’ve had plenty a cup now in almost a month in Ireland.
Do I love it? No. Yet I get why it’s so popular here. It’s a solid, robust tea. It stands up to oversteeping impeccably, and it’s definitely tea, as opposed to coffee (that foreigners drink). As an Irishman informed me before I came here from Canada: our tea is strong and dark, you must have it with milk or it will rot your stomach.
Good call. And so, I enjoy at least a pot of this daily, pretending I’m a local until I open my mouth, and enjoy the conversation that invariably ensues over every cup.
Currently in an AirBnB in Limerick, Ireland, and this is the non caffeinated option for the morning. It’s bright and cheery, although I get little ginger out if it. Mostly lemon in the background, and a thickness I can’t place. Won’t go out of my way to have this again. Still a nice cup.
Can’t add any details on my phone, so boiling water, one tea bag, 12 oz cup, rating of 70.
Flavors: Lemon, Thick
Shared a bit of this and then decided I needed to try more without reading previous notes. This time around — shorter steep, almost all ginger, barely any leaves — and it’s much more palatable. Very ginger-y, without any bite (odd). Getting zero orange sadly, and there’s barely any puerh in here. Meh. It’s okay. I’ll be okay finishing it, or sharing the rest. Won’t restock.
Flavors: Ginger, Smooth
