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.
