It’s early morning and I’m enjoying the peace that only comes with two sleeping children and a quiet house. So, naturally, I wanted a tea that would complement my zen moment and I went for Lemon Ginger. I hadn’t tried this tea before, but was hoping it would suit the moment. Out of the bag, the dry leaf smells very slightly lemony. I can’t pick up much more. (Must be the toast I just made…)

165/1.5 min. I can now smell the ginger as well. After letting it cool just a moment, I take a sip and any remaining stress melts away. This tea is so good! The ginger stands out the most for me, but it’s subtle, too. Not that overpowering, poke-your-tongue ginger taste, but just the flavor of it. Lemon is there as well, but thankfully, it’s very muted. Many a good tea has been overtaken by too much lemon. Because it is so well-balanced, I can also taste the green tea with a hint of grassiness. It’s a beautiful mix and a wonderful addition to my peaceful time alone, snuggled on the couch, waiting for the day to begin.

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
