The dry leaf aroma is strongly ginger. The brewed tea aroma is lemon. The flavor is a light mixture of the two on a solid oolong base. I think the oolong lends a slightly scone-like note to the tea. It’s definitely more scone to me than cookie. If I add sweetener, it may shift more towards the latter. But I’m quite enjoying this sans additions.
I have had the stomach flu for the past 48 hours. I finally feel better today. This ginger tea is hitting the spot. There’s something pinching in the back of my mouth though. Not sure what that is but certain ingredients have evoked this reaction in me in the past. Maybe the lemon myrtle? Anyway, this is a solid ginger tea. Re-name it Lemon Ginger Scone Oolong and it’d be a complete success. I’ve got two packages of it if anyone wants to try it!
