I was out last night and had a few too many drinks and am regretting it this morning. My strange tea craving is for strong, warming teas. My first pot of tea was Hot Cinanmon Orange – Tealux (which I did not write a review for as I was too blurry headed but it was delicious) and now I’m craving ginger.
This blend smells strongly of waxy orange and warm ginger. It’s also sweet and a little sour but so very thick in aroma.
Once steeped the tea is dark red (due to the hibiscus).
It tastes sweet yet tart with distinct hibiscus, orange and ginger notes. In the after taste there is a strong licorice or clove flavour too. It’s a strange tea, it goes from being sweet and hibiscus to being warm and herbal to eventually leaving a refreshing thick feel in the mouth.
Despite me not being a fan of hibiscus or licorice I actually don’t mind this tea. It’s not as strongly ginger as I was wanting but it is a pleasant and unusual drink. I got 50g for £2.18 (roughly 2oz for $4) so I can’t argue with the sale price. Might end up putting some of this up for trade if anyone is interested?
