I forgot I received a tin containing 9 different The London Tea Company flavours. I came across the tin whilst I was sorting my tea cupboard out in preparation for Black Friday. I have no space left :( But I have a few days to clear some space and a further week or so for international post to arrive so I suppose that should be enough time.
Once steeped this tea is golden in colour and has a sweet citrus scent with an after-sniff kick of ginger. Rather fiery actually, cleared my sinus that’s for sure.
In the first few sips the lemongrass is nice and sweet with a gentle sourness which is followed by fiery and warm ginger before being lightened with more citrus in the after taste. The aftertaste citrus is different, it’s not lemongrass..waxier than that…perhaps lime? or orange?
It’s a pleasant enough blend and is definitely the sort of tea that I enjoy drinking in cold weather. I have a warm glow in my stomach now :)
