I couldn’t wait to try this tea. :)) It is an organic Sri Lankan green with ginger-LOVE IT!!, & organic honey-LOVE IT!! I feel the price was decent for 25 teabags so I snatched some.
The teabag is neat-it is tagged without a staple, so when you pull on the tag the string emerges from inside the teabag. I let the kettle temp get away from me a little, so I steeped my tea a little shorter than usual. I smelled the ginger more than the honey in the wet teabag, but the honey more than the ginger in the cup. The aromas in the cup were rather light, which was just fine. The green tea and the honey, had slightly more presence than the ginger, which was lightly aromatic.
The flavors are not….WOW!!…KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF DELICIOUS!!, but more of a mellow flavor. The green tea was smooth, the honey added a little soothing sweetness, and the ginger a little tang on the edge of my palate. While mellow, you know you’re drinking green tea, with the honey and the ginger showing up nicely, but not showing off. While being mild, the honey and ginger stayed a short while on my palate after swallowing the tea.
I’d surely drink this tea anytime-it has a juicy quality, and was warm and soothing for my throat. See, I can drink a tea bagged tea, and enjoy it! Je ne suis pas un snob du thé! :))
