This is actually one of my favorite herbals so I’m surprised that it has such mixed reviews. But I’ve come to the conclusion that I like hibiscus and I like ginger, so I think that is why I feel this is such a winning combination.

NEWSFLASH though. The reason I am reviewing this now is because I have a new favorite tea hobby. I’m trying to cut out calories from alcohol/sugary drinks. And I have a lot of gin/tonic around because I was really into them over the summer. So my new fav thing to do is to use the steeper to brew an herbal (I’ve tried Kanpe, Pink Flamingo, Goji Pop, and this one so far), place some gin and ice in a cup, pour the hot tea over the gin/ice, and then top it up with tonic. DELISH! Such a great drink and not as sugary as anything else that I would have flavoured.

Now to this tea. I love the ginger, I love the smell, and I love it hot or iced. Hot especially though, it has a sweet ginger flavour that I feel makes ginger tea better.

Bio

My love affair with tea began in 2008 when I was living abroad in France. I have since collected teas from all over the world, and enjoy a nice cuppa in the morning. I enjoy mate, black, and herbal tea the best. I am adventuring out a bit into oolong and white teas. Tea is one of my favorite things in the world, and I hope my posts reflect my lighthearted approach to life.

I am a grad student in Ontario where I live with my husband. I study Canadian-American relations and examine Canadian identity through this lens.
