My select box came today! I was immediately intrigued by the description, so I’m trying this one first!

Steeped according to package instructions, the aromas are pretty straight-forward. The ginger and the turmeric pretty much dominate the nose, which is a really strange combination. The citrus is there, but it’s definitely the middle child.

On the tongue, it’s a good marriage of flavor. The lemongrass comes out to say hello, while the citrus fades into the background, barely noticeable. It finishes slightly sweetly, owing to the licorice root. I was expecting something really powerful (maybe even overpowering), but the aromas are much stronger than the liquor itself.

It’d be pretty good iced, too.

From the August ’14 select box.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass, Spices, Sweet
