This is up there for one of my favourite teas ever. Mostly because tea companies have this hesitancy to tone down the ginger because the general public will find it too overbearing. Well… not this gal! I drink ginger tea at night. Not only do I love the smell and taste, but it also settles my stomach after a heavy or spicy meal. This blend includes tonnes of pepper, which adds a distinct bite. This comes through more on the second infusion (as others have mentioned).

I love that it is caffeine free too! Good ol’ rooibos. So I CAN drink this before bed without it giving me a sleepless night. This bad boy is part of my permanent collection. :)

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
