I got a chance to try this tea in person at a store. The smell and taste are strong with bright lemon, with some undertones of ginger. Brewed hot, the earthier tones of the matcha green tea help balance out the sharp citrus. I didn’t notice much of the other ingredients listed in this blend, like apple or licorice, though the tea is sweet without being syrupy, so perhaps those herbals helped bring out a natural sweetness.

I prefer my teas to be extra spicy when it comes to citrus and ginger, so as always, I’ll say that this one could have been even flavor-packed to meet my preference. That being said, it was a satisfying brew as is. The matcha gives this blend a good kick of caffeine, so it’s a good choice for that afternoon pick-me-up. I wouldn’t mind a new blend from Davids Tea that uses the hot, spicy, vibrant ginger and lemon tones of this blend, but used in an herbal tea as a caffeine-free option.

This tea tastes and smells as good as it looks and is described on the Davids Tea web page. “Invigorating” “energizing” “refreshing” Definitely worth a try if this flavors are up your alley.

Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Ginger, Lemon, Orange

I have fun designing themed blends and trying the blends made by others on Adagio. I’ve made themed teas for: X-Files, Mega64, Fallout, the Knick, Hell on Wheels and many more.

I don’t tend to take any sugar or milk in my tea and have a habit of over-steeping. I love trying out themed tea blends, but I would also like to get more adventurous in trying more high quality or unflavored teas.
