It’s been a long time since I’ve had this tea, but I suddenly started feeling a bit queasy this morning and I knew I had to dig it out. It’s a lemon-ginger green blend, and I’ve used it many times in the past to settle my stomach.
Fortunately, it is working. Despite the fact that this tea is getting old, it’s still plenty lemony and there’s enough ginger to settle my stomach (though not really enough to taste in a big way. Lemon Drop to the rescue once again.
The sun came out for about 2 seconds and now the snow is all gone. Oh, southern Ohio.
I suddenly started feeling off and kind of nauseous for some completely unknown reason, so I had to quick think if I had any ginger teas in my stash here at work. I should have remembered this one! It’s been so long since I’ve had it, but it has been my go-to sick-feeling tea at work for a while. I still have a ton of it left. Fortunately it is still pretty flavorful and soothing, although I admit it is getting a little old and the flavors aren’t quite as bright. Well, I guess it’s time for overleafing this one whenever I need to brew it!
Being sick is getting really old. That is all.
I suppose I could have had this one this morning as well, since its a ginger lemon blend. I’m feeling better now, but I decided to have it anyway since I’ve actually only ever tried this one cold steeped. The last time I had it I described the scent of the dry leaves as like a lemon drop candy, but this time I’m getting more sharp, spicy ginger aroma as well.
The brewed tea smells lemongrassy lemony… you know, in that way that is both lemony and a grassiness that doesn’t come from the green tea. It also smells a touch sweet and a touch spicy from the ginger. When still very hot, I didn’t get a ton of flavor from this tea. There was basically an inverse relationship of flavor to hotness. By the time it cooled to just warm, there was more flavor, but it was still pretty light. Light and lemony, with a warm gingery flavor that has the sweetness of a ginger chew candy. Once it cools down to this temp, I’m really enjoying it and I think this will do nicely for times when I need a ginger tea. Also when I just want something lemony!
Oh no you don’t, tonsils. You just calm yourselves right down now… I just got done being sick, I can’t be sick again! This is so unlike my immune system.
I needed this tea for it’s soothing lemon and ginger. This has become my go-to not feeling well tea, whether it be stomach issues or a sore throat. And my throat is being wonky enough this afternoon that I don’t really feel like anything else.
I have tons of new teas to try, but this morning I wasn’t feeling great so I decided I needed to fall back on my lemon ginger green. I could go for even more ginger in this one, but I love ginger, and this is after all primarily a lemon tea. Still very tasty and nicely soothing for the stomach.
I was feeling kind of bleh this morning, and at first I didn’t know if I even wanted any tea (I know, crazy!) but then I decided this lemon-ginger green might perk me up a bit. It’s totally working: lemony and a bit gingery, it’s settling me down just fine. This will probably become my go-to tea when I need something with ginger.
