I tried the organic version of Alvita’s Ginger Root tea.
The smell is faint but it’s there. Ginger has a slight, spicy, and distinctive smell to it.
The taste is lovely. It’s mild with a slight, bitter, spicy punch to it. However, I have a high spice tolerance. For others, my calling it slight may seem biased.
What’s good about this tea is its purity. Many brands will add copious amounts of sugar to exterminate the bitter, unique spice of ginger. Sugar being added to ginger tea is annoyingly common. I like Alvita’s Ginger Root tea because you can clearly taste the ginger in it. There is no added sugar, or anything else but ginger. If you do dislike it, then a sweetner might help you. There’s a note on the box even suggesting to “add sweetner if desired.” So if you don’t like spicy tea then you might want to have some honey or whatnot ready, but if you do like it, then prepare to enjoy a quality tea.
