It was probably a bad idea to drink something caffeinated when it’s close to 2pm. Oops.
Anyways, I don’t watch this series nor plan on it. I initially picked this up for my mom since she wanted to try it, especially since she’s OBSESSED with ginger.
I noticed that the ginger smell was really potent opening the tin. It wasn’t nearly as strong when I brewed it, however.
I brewed it for 4 minutes since 5 minutes tends to make black tea too bitter for my tastes. Straight up, it was sill bitter. After trying it straight, I added a splash of milk to the tea as it recommended (I did 2%). Ok, the milk made it a lot better! I pretty much get very little bitterness with the milk and the ginger flavor was enhanced. I don’t think it even needs a sweetener, which was what the tea recommended too. Though I could try it sometime with a little bit of honey and see how that is.
I love this. I think this will probably be a new favorite of mine.
