I was really craving a flavored tea after dinner tonight. Unfortunately my cupboard is pretty bare in the flavored department these days. I rooted through my ever-growing stash of samples and found this one hanging out in the bottom of the pile. Brewed at about 200/195ºF for 4 minutes with a nice sized teaspoon.
Verdict… it’s okay. Just okay. I got this as a free sample with my last order and am pretty glad I didn’t pay for it. It’s not awful, but just too bland for a ginger tea. There’s a bit of sweetness and apricot in there, I’m assuming that’s the Formosa base, but the ginger is terribly muted. Where’s the spice? Where’s the bite? How can ginger be bland? I’m pretty disappointed this wasn’t better since I absolutely love ginger. And sadly it didn’t satisfy my craving.
