Intriguing. Gingerbread is my thing after pumpkin spice, I like them at least equally but as soon as the Starbucks Gingerbread latte gets in I get that instead of pumpkin spice for the rest of the season. Also, Bath and Body Works gets a candle in that is gingerbread scent and it’s amazing. So this stuff, the ingredients are “cinnamon, ginger, roasted chicory, roasted barley, natural flavors (contains soy lecithin) and luo han guo.” Luo han guo, as best I can decipher, is a sweetener sort of like stevia. It’s not very strong but I think with two bags it could be if that’s what you want (which is what I want and what I’m going to do next time). It’s sweet and cinnamon-y and ginger-y. I bet if I made it in hot milk (with a little sugar and vanilla? hm!) it would be delicious. I don’t like tea generally but I swing this pretty well, well enough that I will try the Apple Cinnamon one I almost got with it. It’s a nice way to feel festive without any calories which I can totally get on board with. Steeping it for a looong time in hoooot water seems necessary to coerce the flavors out.

I live in NC with my Irish husband and our two furbabies, Olaf the Hedgehog and his little brother Hugo the Peekapoo. I’m a microbiologist but mostly I love to travel.

My mom is the tea guru ashmanra. I have an uneducated interest in tea. I began drinking green tea a few years ago to be healthy and have developed a taste for matcha, white, puerh, and some black. My go-to is Stash White Christmas which I drink in amounts that should probably be studied long-term. Stash should probably be sponsoring me. (except they just discontinued White Christmas and were rude when I contacted them about it…. Never mind about Stash, they are canceled)
