I think that the ginger and the spiciness is just drowned out by stevia in this blend. It leaves a really brutal aftertaste, one that I haven’t noticed so much in other teas that contain stevia. I only tried it in store, as it was the tea of the day the last time I was in – Maybe if I brew it myself and make it a bit stronger, the stevia won’t be as offensive. But really, if I have to make an effort to like a tea, I really shouldn’t bother. There are too many better ones out there!!! I’ll leave it unrated for now though.. Would hate to give it a biased rating.
