drank Ginger Lemongrass by Tea Forte
299 tasting notes

The name is misleading… it should be renamed Licorice Ginger. I don’t find the tea as spicy as others have commented, though the taste of ginger is indeed pretty strong. The dominant note turns out to be sweet and herbal licorice – which I loathe. I really hate it when the sickly sweetness lingers in my mouth and throat. The whole cup is more like a herbal soup than tea to me… I don’t think the overwhelming flavours of licorice and ginger go well together, and can anyone tell me where lemongrass has gone???? Tea Forte, in my opinion, should really adjust the blend formula in order to achieve a better balance among all the flavours!

Profile

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

Btw, check out my tea-themed board on Pinterest, if you like tea and pretty things!
