From Good Life Tea

From Southern India, a green tea whose colour, flush ginkgo content, and flavour collection all profess innate, sensory brightness; Organic Green Tea with citrus and Ginkgo is a prime example of how an organic tea can bring “functionality” to a
relaxing, tantalizingly-flavoured tisanal.
Ginkgo’s properties are known, but nonetheless its place in this blend bears mentioning. From it’s ability to stimulate concentration, memory storage, and even tactile facilities such as balance; ginkgo is one of the oldest continually-used medicinals. But let’s take a step back and remember the pleasures of life that we hope to stay healthy for in the first place! This true Indian Green tea’s organic blend isn’t shy about including stripped lemongrass, peels from citrics, and an keening, springy overall flavour. Some fans even describe a “twang” as one shape that the tones in this beloved Organic.
Enjoy this invigorating, healthy tisanal with a drop of honey if you’d like sweetness to bloom in its lights flavour collection. Or enjoy it on its own – refreshing, memorable, and lively as a summertime day in the subcontinent.
Base leaf: Green.
Health properties: Memory and concentration stimulant.
Flavor strength: Medium, citrus. Primary collection is ginkgo citrus.

Monday has arrived, meaning a new week (unless you are someone who prefers to start the week on Sunday, in that case never mind) and a fresh start. I am back in Pennsylvania, as much as I enjoyed my trip to South Carolina, I am glad to be back because I wore myself out! I still have not really relaxed since I left Kansas City, so it will be good to just chill and enjoy the autumn air. Yours truly hopes to go hiking in the mountains before mushrooms go away and all the leaves fall later this week, an exciting prospect!

Today’s tea is all about having a functioning brain, Good Life Tea’s Citrus & Ginkgo Organic Green Tea blends Green Tea from India, Lemongrass, Citrus Peels, and of course Ginkgo. This pungent herb has been used for quite a while to stimulate the brain, I remember back in my school days I would eat strange tasting Ginkgo candies I bought at the local Asian Market, no idea if they helped my perpetually distracted mind though! The aroma of this tea is pretty potently citrus, lots and lots of lemon! Luckily it is not a fake lemon aroma, it smells much like I just stuck my nose inside a crate full of fresh lemons along with the aroma of crushed lemon leaves. There is just a tiny hint of herbal notes and a delicate note of vegetation.

The brewed leaves are much more balanced, I can smell the other elements of the tea, including lemons, fresh vegetation, and pungent herbal notes. There is also a note of pepper and a hint of sharpness that is a bit hard to place, like a mix of green wood and broken grass. The liquid smells more or less identical to the wet leaves, there is just a slight honey sweetness that was not present in the leaves.

The taste is, well it is a bit odd. As with most things that contain herbs, sometimes the taste is nothing short of strange, there is a reason the term herbaceous exists, because it is the best description for it. The tea is a bit sour, both from the lemons and the slightly pungent ginkgo, along with a touch of pepper, and a finish of gentle green notes and smoke. I am not sure how to feel about this tea, it was not my favorite tea ever, but it was not bad, just not necessarily the taste for me.
