My last bag! I did enjoy this, even though I could have used just a wee bit less pepper in this tisane. I’m not going to replace this one – I’ve already bought some organic ginger root from Upton for the nights when I’m in the mood for ginger :)

I like this after a meal for its digestive properties, but not too close to bedtime. The ginger really jolts me some times.
And of course, Yogi has great graphics. Aesthetic pleasure is part of my enjoyment.

Just now I was sitting hunched over my computer, trying not to think about the tax deadline, and suddenly I was very glad to remember that I had an unopened box of ginger tea on the shelf.
Oh my goodness, the scent was delightful when I tore open the packet. Ginger (which I love) and lemon, which I sometimes love. I let it steep a long time, leaving the bag in, and continuing to sniff as it steeped. The ginger aroma is very strong and pleasant.
First sip or two confirms the gingery/peppery flavor. This is a tea for those who enjoy the heat of ginger, not just its sweet spiciness. I am one of those people, frequently asking for chopped ginger at Asian restaurants to mix into unexpectedly bland dishes. I don’t care for jalapenos in general, but I do like ginger and I do like black pepper, and this tea, with a sharp little bite of lemon/lemongrass at the end, is very appealing. I do not taste the licorice or peppermint, but I can feel the coolness of the mint tempering the heat of the ginger when I hold a mouthful before swallowing.
Definitely a keeper. And I haven’t though about the tax deadline for several minutes now.
This is a standard tea in my house, all of my family love it and we drink it pretty much every day. Every now & then when we are running low I go to Trader Joe’s (who sell it for a dollar less than I’ve seen anywhere else) and buy ten boxes at a time. This is a tea for people who really LOVE ginger and licorice, it is firey, peppery and bold with a strong licorice undernote. To let you know where I’m coming from when I need the curative powers of ginger I just eat ginger root raw and I grew up being given licorice root to chew on as a “candy” by my hippie mother. Ginger & licorice make me very, very happy. When I’m going out on an expidition I often throw a bag of this into a thermal flask, fill it up with boiling water and let it steep for hours, it just gets better the longer you steep it.
Like others have said, the black pepper gets overpowering if you steep too long. If something says, “Steep for 5-10 minutes” I go for 10 usually but I’ll back this one off next time. Still nice after the big lunch I just had. It’s decent, I might keep it around the office for afternoons, but there are other grocery store teas that I prefer.
YOW! This tea is SPICY. I also found that it’s a little tempramental in terms of steep time. Just a few seconds too long, and it’s almost impossible to drink. Normally, I love and trust Yogi teas, but man, this one has a bite to it. It’s not just the ginger- I know full well that ginger is spicy- I think it’s the black pepper that’s too much for me.
I drink it only for medicinal purposes, because it certainly does help settle my stomach some nights, but it can be a little tough to take. I do enjoy the warm feeling it leaves in my throat and stomach, but I usually end up waiting until it’s cool enough, and then gulping it down quickly to avoid tasting it too much. Definitely not my favorite ginger blend ever, but it hasn’t turned me off to Yogi or to other ginger teas, either.
