First tea out of my new stash from Zen. So excited to try something local again!
First off, I should note that I ordered online, and had every intention of picking it up. So, I paid for zero shipping. Yet lo and behold, Zen shipped it FOR FREE, and it arrived two days after I ordered it. Seriously?! Wowza. Thank you. I will definitely make contact to see if I need to pay them some extra for their time.
All I’ve been drinking the past 24hrs has been some form of ginger tea or another, so I knew my tastebuds were a bit off. I smelled zero ginger or anything other than green tea from the bag, as well as while it steeped. As it cools, I can smell a bit of lemongrass, however it’s very faint.
Flavor-wise, this is definitely a green tea, with only a smidgen of lemongrass flavor, while the lemon follows shortly after sipping (and again, oh-so-very-faintly). I taste zero ginger, which makes me a bit sad.
I’ll mix this with some stronger ginger tea in the future, because I do like the delicateness of the green tea.
