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.

College student. Sophomore. 19 years old. Recent tea convert after trying loose leaf tea for the first time from Teavana a few years ago.

My campus sells tins of Republic of Tea tins on campus, along with selling cups of freshly brewed tea using Republic of Tea bags at their Jazzman’s locations. Because of this, most of my tasting notes will likely be that of different teas from Republic of Tea.
If you think I’m obsessed with tea, you should see my mom. What’s in my cupboard currently is all that is shared between me and my mom at home.
