I wasn’t sure about this one at all as I’m not a big fan of tumeric or ginger, but it was $1 or something so I figured why not! It does have licorice which I like!

OMGsrsly reviewed this earlier and helped convince me to give it a shot. And you know what? It wasn’t too bad! I decided to ignore the recommended 7 minute steep time because that just sounds like ginger-overload, and I went for 3.5. This way I get a slightly sweet, slightly tangy cup and the ginger and licorice mix together nicely. The licorice gives me that nice cool mouthfeel, while the ginger/tumeric alternately kick things up a bit. Yet it works. It really does.

I’m not saying I’d go out and buy an oz of this, but my 20g pack won’t be too hard to sipdown and maybe I’ll get more? I want a nice licorice tea and this would be handy for sick days.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
