From Tea Forte

The sunny scent of fresh picked citrus complemented by the comfort and taste of ginger with a lingering finish of the tropics

This started out decent, but got worse as it cooled. For some reason it reminds me of medicine – not the thing I would pick out to drink because it tastes good. It is drinkable, but barely so. It has taken me several hours to get through half a mug and I’m thinking the rest may be going down the drain soon. This is my least favorite of the Single Steep Sampler so far.

Hmm…lime and ginger sound like they’d work against each other instead of playing together nicely.

Tea #6 from Traveling Tea Box C

I’m still slowly converting my hand-written notes to tasting notes.

Kiwi and lime flavors were quite prominent, but I didn’t taste any ginger at all. While it didn’t live up to what the name promised, I still found this to be an enjoyable tisane. I liked it enough to take a few bags out to enjoy later. I think I’ll try it out iced next time.

Last in my Tea Forte sampler.

Oh. My.

I will preface this by saying I love ginger. I eat ginger laced foods. I buy the super potent ginger beer where you see a layer of ginger debris on the bottom of the bottle. I love ginger so much that I’ll just suck on a piece of it while cooking. This tea is delicious.

I’ll keep it short, because I basically drooled all over my blog post… I went into this tea pretty grumpy. It was late but I really wanted to do the sampler teas five nights in a row (in my blog anyway, I keep forgetting to rate here). I saw that it had received pretty low scores and thought, well, it’ll probably be a one and done. I steeped this all night. Then I put it in the fridge and steeped it the next day.

The ginger is strong with this one. It’s sharp, warming, and vibrant. The lemon/lime combo supports it nicely and doesn’t get in the way. Makes it somewhat more refreshing. The honeybush is there and balances it out with a slight sweetness. I’m not sure where the kiwi was. It didn’t show up until the next day. In fact, the next day everything was much more balanced in flavor and all flavors were present and accounted for. I would wager that many of the folks who didn’t like this tea on the first or second steep would probably have liked it on my last steeps.

This tea had a wild, firey ginger orgy in my mouth. We partied all night long. Our good times ended the following afternoon, where we ended our craziness on a more peaceful, soothing tropical note. Good times.

I love ginger too, I don’t know that I like it quite as much as you do though… LOL although I have been known to buy candied ginger and snack on that. YUM!

OolongLily

Yay! Yeah I’m a little overboard when it comes to ginger. XD

I’ve been a bit scared to break into my Tea Forte sampler (thanks Tea Forte!) for all the reviews I’ve been seeing. This one in particular scared me because I’m not into ginger. But, I’m thinking my stand on ginger may be softening or I like it with the right flavours, because this isn’t bad. It was my first sample since I’ve been coming down with a summer cold (I managed not to get sick all winter but now, in August?)

I don’t think I’d purchase this, though maybe just to have on hand for when I want a ginger tea (i.e. when sick; ginger seems to work incredibly well for me). Anyway, this is definitely bitingly gingery. My tongue is tingling. And I can see what others mean when they liken it to cleaner or medicine. And yet I think if I happened to be in the mood for ginger (rare), this is a pretty decent option. I am really liking the tart-and-sweet fruity hint in the aftertaste. So, definitely not a favourite but I think it does what it does pretty well.

I got this as a free sample from tea forte. I truly appreciate the generosity of tea forte in providing the sample. However, unfortunately I do not really like this tea. I wish I did! However, it tastes somewhat medicinal. I do enjoy other tea forte products but this one is not for me.

As an aside: I had the cup sitting next to me and my husband came in and asked for tea. I handed him the cup and he LOVES this.

I seriously thought I logged this one already but it’s not saying that…so…this is a backlog…

I enjoyed this one! The ginger was slight and played a part but the Kiwi/Lime is what I really enjoyed! Especially pairing it with the Honeybush! The lemon notes were a nice touch, too!

It appears I may be in the minority here, but I think this is just dandy! :)

Just came down from dinner and poured another cup. I can NOT finish this. I have to lower the rating….

The scent right out of the pouch is very fruity and very strong. The flavor is a bit difficult to describe. It’s fruity and with a little bit of something that tastes like sage. This flavor makes the tea more savory instead of sweet. The finish gives me that interesting fizzy sensation, like I’ve had a sip of soda. I think that this would be so much better iced, but even then I don’t think I’d go crazy for it. Thank you Ottawa Tea for a sample!

Kiwi Lime Ginger is what I chose to try first. Dry=I can smell fruit and ginger. The ginger is very prominent in the blend. Once the hot water hit the brew basket, I could smell the rooibos:( I am sad to say the rooibos and the ginger overpower this blend to the point that I cannot finish my sample:(
I hope the other samples are better than this one.

I might have a migraine – things smell to strong when I do. This smells like cleaner to me…and I could only manage a sip with that image in my head. It may be better iced…Or maybe I’m just picky. I’m not terribly fond of infusions as it is.
