Strong lemon flavor and when steeped over five minutes a nice spicy ginger flavor emerges. Not a daily drinker, but for the occasional sore throat and stuffy nose, this seems to clear it up nicely.

OK, this was the day my sinuses needed a little assist, as I mentioned in my first tea note. Also, a couple of days ago I logged Yogi Ginger, so it’s an apt time for a comparison.
First, re: the sinuses. It is not necessary to actually sip the tea for it to have a beneficial effect on said sinuses. Merely sniffing the gingery steam has helped enormously. ;)
Secondly, the taste experience. I find it interesting that the aroma is strongly ginger for me, but when I taste it it’s still overwhelmingly lemony-lemongrass with a spicy ginger afterbite.
Verdict: the Yogi tea was soothing to the tum, the Stash tea is soothing to the respiratory system. Each has a place on my shelf, and a distinctive flavor despite very similar ingredients, and I’m raising my initial rating on the Stash tea.
One question remains. The box says it “Contains: soy.” I don’t have any sensitivity to soy, but others may. I can’t figure out where that’s coming from among the listed ingredients, which are “ginger root, lemongrass, lemon flavor, safflower, hibiscus, and citric acid.”
Great combination of lemon and ginger flavor. This is a great tea for when you have a cold – the ginger makes you feel a bit less stuffy. It’s been a while since I had it, but I think longer steeping times increased the ginger flavor without anything getting weird. I have wished that stash had a plain ginger herbal tea, though, as I get tired of lemon flavor sometimes.
My favorite Lemon Ginger tea EVER. My husband calls this “stinky tea”. It smells very strong and potent. The flavor has a bite and is really zippy on your tongue. It has a warm feeling/aftertaste in your throat too. If you don’t like the warmth of ginger you won’t like this tea, but if you are a fan of ginger you will probably love it. Just enough lemon without being too lemony.
I drink it black with a touch of honey.
This tea, though good for something bagged, is definitely not natural tasting. When I think of tea with ginger I expect something hot and spicy, with a nice kick to it. This tea has the ginger kick but it doesn’t feel very fresh or natural, as ginger usually does. I had to steep it a bit longer to get the kick in there. The acidity of lemon and that kick of ginger are usually a good combination but were mild in this tea. Ginger is definitely the dominating flavour and the aftertaste is lemon (although it is a rather synthetic aftertaste). It has not been my favourite but it isn’t the worst I’ve tried and it is very practical and good if you’re on the move. Adding honey improves the overall taste.
I have a feeling this would be good iced; I will try that out sometime.
