I’ve been raised to believe that adding anything to green tea is utter blasphemy, but today, out of curiosity, I decided to experiment a little in an attempt to do something new with a familiar tea. I added some honey to my mug and I was pleasently surprised by the results. The honey smoothes out both the tang of the lemongrass and the pungency of the gingerroot and meshes very nicely with the tea as a whole.

Too much Ginger and not enough lemon but not a terrible taste. Probably not one I would purchase again tho.

SIPDOWN!!!!

Great combination! It doesn’t taste anything like a ginger snap, but the flavor does “snap”. The lemon tang comes from lemongrass and it really makes this tea zing. Something that will be in my cupboard as often as I can fit it in!!

My Teas Etc. order came in today Yea! So this was the little sample I chose and I have to say it’s not very flavorful it has a slight lemony taste and mostly green tea flavor. The dry leaf smells wonderful reminiscent of a Luden’s Lemon cough drop.

I am apparently in the minority here, but I was not thrilled with this tea. Overwhelmingly lemongrass up front! You get the ginger a little bit after, but even that seems to have a bitter bite to it. Really worried it’s not going to mellow, that the green won’t balance it out..

I think I must have done something wrong here. This tea was top 5 in Flavored/Blended Green at the 2008 World Tea Championships, and to me, it’s just bitter. The water was fine, the steep time was fine (maybe a bit long?), the proportion was fine.. I really don’t know for sure what happened.

Going to try second steep, see if it helps any.

And it did! Perhaps I let it steep too long the first time. Second steep MUCH less bitter, but still almost medicinal.The lemon definitely carries over from the smell to the taste, although it loses some pungency. The ginger comes to life in the steeping, but I really still can’t find much green in there. Maybe guo lu is milder than what I’m used to?

Definitely relaxed a bit as it chilled (thank you, overenthusiastic office air conditioning).
I think I prefer this iced, but I’d be wary of how to steep it well. Brewing a cup and letting it chill gently seemed to do very nice things to it; will have to experiment further!

I wasn’t sure if I’d like this tea because ginger and lemon can both be very strong flavors and sometimes I just can’t handle them. This one is mellow with that nice zing that ginger adds to the back of your throat. It has just enough flavor for me to wake me up but doesn’t get to be too much halfway through the cup. I used really hot water on this because I thought it was black tea (woops). Didn’t seem to hurt it much though. Yummy!

I love it when a FREE sample rocks. The smell it melt your face, even with the small little bag I opened up. But, you can taste all the good parts of it right away…sweet, not bitter lemon…surrounded by the slight taste of ginger (which I know well from my love of Moscow Mules). This sample will likely turn into an order.

The smell was not so great but the taste was pretty good.
