From Mighty Leaf Tea (Custom Mix)

Rainforest Maté:
Spice and fruit unite in Rainforest Maté tea, a unique mate herbal tea composed of energizing maté tea, licorice, spices, rosehips and pineapple chunks that revitalizes when brewed. Maté tea is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and contains natural caffeine, which affects the body differently than regular caffeine, both calming the nerves and bringing about an energetic lift.

Ginger Twist:
The Ginger Twist herbal tea is a harmonious mix of lemongrass, tropical fruits, and mint fueled with a touch of ginger and ginseng. A lush and magical herb and fruited infusion, Ginger Twist herbal tea helps promote calm, focus and good health with a powerful dose of antioxidants.

I mixed up this blend on Wednesday while I was at work. I must admit it’s nice to work at a place where I can drink as much tea as I like, and they have almost every Mighty Leaf blend out there. I’m really looking forward to all of the blends I’ll be able to combine and try out. :3

Anyway, I kind of mixed these two together on a whim. I really wanted a Maté for the energy (& I’m trying to stay away from coffee), and I was feeling a little nauseous so I grabbed the ginger to try and relieve some of that.
I used one tea bag of each tea, and steeped them for 5 minutes in 20oz of 208 degree water. I was craving something mildly sweet, so I also added 3 “pumps” of Simple Syrup.
The tea brewed to a “honey amber” type color, and the scent was fruity with a mild undertone of spice (much like cardamom or cinnamon). Flavor wise, the ginger wasn’t very pronounced to me at all. Mainly I tasted lemon, mate, and an unidentifiable fruit(s). It left a very minty aftertaste in my mouth, as well.

Overall, the blend was pretty good. I think I will continue to drink it on a pretty often basis because of its energy qualities (the Ginger Twist has Ginseng in it as well), but other than that it’s not something I would choose to indulge in out of pure “liking”. It did help with my nausea as well.

That’s about it and I’m being rushed off the computer, so there ya go!
