This was in my company’s kitchen this morning so I’m giving it a shot. Smells great and tastes pretty good for a paper bagged tea. I’ve added lots of honey. Ingredient list is green tea, lemongrass, “natural flavors” (?), rose petals and peppermint. Why does it also contain soy lecithin? Need to keep an eye on this ingredient in other teas.

I think that it is to preserve the tea giving it a longer shelf life. Besides that it does not make scenes to me too.

Soy lecithin, in this case, is most likely being used as an emulsifier – that is, an ingredient that helps keep things that naturally separate together. My best bet is that the oils in the lemongrass rise to the surface of the tea and make the flavor bitter, and the soy lecithin is being used to keep it all together.

I’m not usually a big green tea drinker, but I like this green tea with ginseng. Normally I drink black teas with sweetener, but for this I use only a small amount or sweetener or none at all. The bags are individually wrapped which makes it easier to transport. This was a good tea for drinking on campus while grading homework.

You can certainly smell the spices galore on this one! WOWZA! I’ve put this one on the back burner so to speak because I didn’t like it at first. Thought I would give it a 2nd chance. Still don’t like it. It’s smells like it should be all spice but then you taste it and it’s very sweet. Not one of my favorites. Maybe it’s better as an iced tea.
