From DAVIDsTEA

Your late-night superhero

The idea came at about 2 in the morning one chilly night. David had a cold. He’d been drinking cup after cup of ginger tea, but there was a problem. His ginger tea had a ton of caffeine. His throat felt great, but he couldn’t get any sleep. Something had to be done. So he decided to create an herbal ginger tea – the spiciest, most comforting tisane he could imagine, with lots of ginger, peppercorns and green rooibos. And, most importantly, zero caffeine. The result? A cold remedy so soothing…you might even say it has superpowers. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Organic: Ginger, Fair Trade Certified green rooibos, pink peppercorns, black pepper, white pepper, flavouring*.

Wow, yum. This is a good gingery tea. I didn’t steep it too long, so it may be able to produce a stronger flavour than what I got, but it’s quite gingery enough for me without being overly biting/spicy. It tastes like liquid ginger candies that my mom likes to buy at asian grocery stores.

Although I don’t think it would be necessary for me to keep a stash of this around, I’d definitely recommend this tea to any ginger lover! I just very infrequently crave ginger, so it would just take up space.

ETA: Second infusion, infused for maybe 5-6 mins? is potent! Much more bite here. I think this would be a great blend to mix with others that need a bit more ginger (if dehydrated or fresh ginger is not available, as obviously those would be even more potent).

i brewed this at 10am and just rested the lid on top of my timolino. and now it’s still too hot to drink.
not complaining!! maybe i should buy stock in timolino. or go work for the company. or get a timolino tattoo.

this tea is F-ing awesome.
it has a wonderful teeny tiny amount of sweetness.
so glad I got it.

(i was a dance major in high school and college. for perspective, i was so serious at the time that i almost went to Julliard.)
last weekend i took my first dance class in over 15 years.
it was mentally hard cuz i’m not used to memorizing combinations and i was very anxious, but it was also surprisingly doable physically.
during the class i was stressed and being hard on myself but i knew i was gonna have to experience my baggage in order to get through it and do it. hello dance baggage. whomp whomp.
but it wasn’t nearly as haunting as i thought it was going to be. and i feel so excited for the next class.
it was a Horton style class. and i hope to go for months and months to come.

I returned my Timolino just for that reason. It would take forever for me to be able to drink and I can not wait that long. It is beautiful but just too effective.

Shmiracles

i’ll admit, i do sometimes add an ice cube to it if i’m in a hurry. GASP! but not often. i am a sipper. and my tea always seems to go cold. heck i have a cold cup in front of me right now! hah

Ellyn

A tiimolino is on my list!

Josie Jade

I’ve got to get a Timolino! Last semester i was on campus for 12 hours straight everyday and wouldve loved to have hot tea for my last class. Right now I only have one class a day so I’m home most of the time. Hot tea all day!

Shmiracles

i still use my timolinos at home ALL the time. cuz i notoriously let my teas sit too long and get cold. hah problem solved :)

Josie Jade

Good idea! I need to just order one since I’ve been meaning to since Christmas!

Thanks Shmiracles! This was a random pick but I’m happy it was. 1.I had a tummy ache from dinner and 2. I’m watching a very frustrating scary movie. So that’s like doubling my tummy ache. This is enjoyable though. There is a lovely sweet note with the ginger. It’s pretty basic. Ginger tea with sweet notes. Thanks again :)

1.5tsp for 250mL water @100C, steeped seven minutes.

I steep herbals a long time.

This is an excellent ginger tisane. You must like ginger to drink this. It burns. When you’ve got a sore throat, this burn is goooood. I don’t know why; it seems counter-intuitive, coating a sore throat with ginger and pepper, but it soothes. The ginger here is good for nausea, too, if you’re not too far gone to throw up a sip of liquid. I still miss the Electric Lemon from a few years ago, but this one rocks.

I haven’t tried this one yet, but I should, I love strong ginger teas.

MissLena

This one is so good! I have raved about it soo many times, and I’m almost at the bottom of my 100g tin! Almost time to restock :D

There is something I really don’t like about the way this tea smells… it reminds me of baby powder or something. But it tastes alright. It’s a little sweet and verrrryy peppery. Usually I love ginger teas (plus ginger is my remedy for basically everything) but I think the green rooibos is throwing me off. Still enjoyable, and I think it would be great with honey.

I tried this as a free sample during my most recent visit to the DAVIDsTEA in NYC on Bleecker Street. I can’t say enough good things about that location. I’ve been there twice in the last 10 months, and it’s been the highlight of my trips to New York.

But on to the tea, this was SUPER spicy! The strongest flavor is definitely ginger, followed by strong spiciness, followed by green rooibos. My new husband really liked it a lot. :) He’s very fond of spicy things. For me, this was just okay. It’s definitely fun to try but not to drink on a regular basis.

However, if you’re like my husband and love spicy things, then you’d probably love this tea. Just look at the average rating! It’s one of the highest rated DAVIDsTEA teas! So, I say check it out and maybe you’ll fall in love. ;)

Dry this tea is so strong, so much ginger and pepper! There were lots of red and black peppercorns in my bag. At first I took a bit too strong of a smell, definitely made my eyes water and nose burn haha. Steeped it smells less strong, but still lots of ginger. At first it tastes like ginger, ginger and more ginger with a hint of pepper. The pepper gets stronger in the after taste. Gives some nice heat to the back of my throat. This tea definitely settles my tummy! Loving this tea, so good!

There’s an artificial chicken-soup like overtone in the aroma and aftertaste that seems out of place in this tisane. It is quite unsettling. I’m having a lot of difficulty in finishing my cup. Maybe I picked up a bad batch of this?

I still have some left in the sample that I purchased that I will save for another day.

Ginger ginger pepper pepper pepper and ginger.
Wow.
I’m not.. I’ve never had tea like this before! I’m just feeling a tad sick and I need concentration tea so I’ve been busting out my herbals and rooibos teas because freakin midterms are coming up.

The second I got this tea from shmiracles, I opened the pack up and sniffed heavily. This just smells GREAT in the package, and it tastes even much better!
