Not a bad tea, but not great either. It had the grassy taste of green tea, but some sugar and a teaspoon of acacia honey brought out the lemongrass and ginger flavors. The lemon was the stronger flavor of the two; the ginger lurked in the background, so I added a pinch of ground ginger, which I felt improved the tea and balanced the flavors. I just don’t feel that a tea should need this much doctoring to taste good. It did feel good, however, on my throat, which is still hoarse from a cold.

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
