My client cancelled today,so I get to bum around after a busy exhausting but great week. The world outside isn’t sunny anymore but grey and rainy and decidedly colourless. I need something very different to warm the bones and summon the sun.

I got 15 teams of this on my DT birthday shop. I’m not crazy about ginger but I love DT’s interpretations like strawberry ginger and even splash. There is a vision of ginger as sexy spicy and sometimes remarkably subtle.

In the pouch it smells a little spicy,layered under a definite sweetness of creamy coconut and a balancing base of lemongrass.

I’ve never had a WHITE ginger tea so this is a brand new experience.

Okay,down the hatch!

The Ginger is surprisingly and the coconut is apparent but not overwhelming either. There is a left over spiciness like you ate a spicy meal hours ago but it is not heavy or unpleasant. This is a nice tea but noy mind blowing in any way it is light and spicy and just a little creamy.

Reminds me of spicy meals in my far memory that I enjoyed.
Gets spicier as the mug empties. Not unpleasantly.

Perfect for people who are scared of aggressive ginger flavour but enjoy it in a more subtle manner. Perfect for adding a little spice to a cold,wet day.

Final Verdict: Unsurprising but pleasant and mild. I don’t think I’ll pick up anymore and may trade my few grams to my bff to try. Mediocre overall.

I rated higher because I enjoyed this iced but I don’t think I could drink two cups back to back. I just keep some in the fridge to have every now and then. I do find it refreshing but in moderate quantity.
