Bought this because I love ginger teas. Go-to tea whenever I have not much time to brew loose leaf and I need something warm for an upset stomach.

“Yep, I’m definitely getting sick. So what do I choose? This tea, of course. Lemon for the cough, and ginger for the chills. Worked wonders, and tasted pretty good in the process. The ginger...” Read full tasting note

The zesty citrus flavour of lemon has been invigorating the tea experience for hundreds of years. Chinese herbalists were known to use the pungent taste of ginger in tea over 2500 years ago. Today the expert blenders at Twinings have combined these two great flavours for a lively and enjoyable herbal tea experience.

I can’t wait to get back to Canada where my collection of tea awaits me…I brought a few teas with me thinking that if I was moving to China there would be plenty of options for buying tea….well, no where close to me! There are supermarket teas that I can’t read and don’t particularly trust. And there are some that I recognize – like this one, which has become a staple for me as I try to ration my favourites that I brought along!
My favourite thing about this tea is that I find it wonderful for an upset stomach, which, unsurprisingly, is fairly common here. It’s a bit weaker than I’d like – if I was home I’d use two teabags, but I try not to go through it too quickly. Ginger is one of my favourite flavours – I’m a huge fan of homemade ginger beer so any tea that is gingery (Davidstea Super Ginger for example) is great for me!
I do find that the bag breaks apart sometimes and I end up with floaty bits of ginger in my timolino. Not a huge deal for me at all but it might bother some people.
A friend brought me two new teas to try from Taiwan – I can’t read the packaging but I think one is a green and one is an oolong. Lemon and ginger is nice but I’ll be happy to switch it up!
I wasn’t so sure about this tea when the aroma first hit me. The first thing that came to mind was “Lemon Pledge” (like the furniture polish). Then I thought “Aw man! I just wasted my money on this tea when I could’ve had Pledge straight from the bottle!” I prepared it with 2 packets of Truvia sweetener since I wasn’t sure about honey flavored Pledge. The tea actually turned out kinda nice though. It’s more like lemon fruit loops! I’ll try it with honey next time.
The only bagged tea I keep around right now. My friend made it for me when I was sick once and I said, “what tea is this?! It tastes like the botan rice candies I used to eat when I was a kid!!” So if you want a delicious tea that tastes like Japanese candies, drink this with loads of honey! This is like ultimate comfort food to me, I don’t care if it’s cold or hot out, middle of the day or middle of the night, I will never ever say no to this tea. :)
