drank Ginger by Yogi Tea
18 tasting notes

This is a standard tea in my house, all of my family love it and we drink it pretty much every day. Every now & then when we are running low I go to Trader Joe’s (who sell it for a dollar less than I’ve seen anywhere else) and buy ten boxes at a time. This is a tea for people who really LOVE ginger and licorice, it is firey, peppery and bold with a strong licorice undernote. To let you know where I’m coming from when I need the curative powers of ginger I just eat ginger root raw and I grew up being given licorice root to chew on as a “candy” by my hippie mother. Ginger & licorice make me very, very happy. When I’m going out on an expidition I often throw a bag of this into a thermal flask, fill it up with boiling water and let it steep for hours, it just gets better the longer you steep it.

Haven’t tried this yet but found it at a local grocery yesterday evening. We are supposed to be getting a couple of Trader Joe’s later this year. How’s the tea selection overall?

Not that great I’m afraid! But everything they do have is very reasonably priced. The TJs I’ve been to usually have two flavors of Yogi tea, some boxed pre-made chai and a range of (bagged) green, black & herbal tea. Sometimes they have white tea and flavored teas as well. I’ve tried a variety of their teas but the only one I really like is Yogi ginger – but then I love that and am so grateful they have it cheap, so I can’t complain too much!

I think I’m going to have to start mail-ordering to support my growing tea/tisane adventure. It’s good to know that TJ has good prices, though!

Bio

I’m an expat Brit in America, a lifelong tea lover in that British “milk and two sugars” way, who 6 years ago learned to love her tea without sugar, and now is learning to love it without milk. Two summers ago I learned how to make a proper glass of American iced tea. I’m new to indie tea and having an alarming amount of fun trying out all the amazing blends I keep finding! I used to just drink the black tea I brought home from my visits to the UK plus things like Yogi ginger, and now I am finding a whole new world of tea out there to explore.

Right now I’m mostly interested in flavoured teas as I find those the easiest to enjoy without milk and especially in teas with little to no caffeine as too much caffeine can really send my body chemistry into a tailspin. In the early morning I indulge myself with a couple of cups of something caffeinated but after that it’s noncaf all the way. My teacups are pint sized and I usually have one near me.
