From a recent 52Teas order.
I almost didn’t get this one because of the ginger, but ultimately I’m glad I did because it was really delightful! I’ll be perfectly honest though, ever since I cracked the code of ingredients generally used to recreate this ‘cola’ flavour in teas I’ve found that cola teas are a lot less magical tasting for me. It’s just citrus (lemon or lime) paired with a mix of chai spices – generally cinnamon, black pepper, and anise. And boom – cola!
The flavour is really strong in this one though, and quite smooth! Even now that I know the magic combo often used, I had a hard time mentally separating the ingredients in this one. Even the ginger just melded with everything else so smoothly! Though there were a few sips that brought me back to ‘Drink, Don’t Eat Grapefruit Sugar Scrub’ – probably because of the use of the candied ginger.
It’s actually probably the best cola flavoured tea I’ve had all year – and surprisingly I’ve had quite a few this year – like, probably at least ten? If you’re down with cola flavoured teas, I totally recommend this one!
