The ginger is surprisingly mild, and combines nicely with the lemongrass. But, there’s something odd and almost stevia-like in the aftertaste. It’s okay, but I think I’d prefer plain ginger steeped with lemon.

Last night was a bit of a disaster. I stopped studying around 11:30 at night. Watched a show for an hour to destress and then made my way to bed. My stomach was feeling a bit uncomfortable but I figured I would fall asleep and it would be fine. When I couldn’t get comfortable, I took some tums and that seemed to help a little since I wasn’t nauseous anymore. I laid back down but continued to toss and turn. At some point I gave up and watched a show for a bit then tried again. Finally I grabbed my phone to see if I could look up a comfortable position to sleep in since the discomfort turned to pain and the nausea came back full force. I was expecting it to be 3 am…it was 5 am. Then the nausea got bad and I started throwing up.
In my head all I could think was “nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach”…why don’t I own pepto?! What I do own is Gravol. Unfortunately Gravol also makes me groggy for days and seeing as exams are nigh, I don’t have that kind of time.
The vomiting stopped but then the stomach pain got really bad at some point so I ended up just wandering my apartment at 5:30 am, googling. For a second I thought it might have been appendicitis but I talked myself off that ledge b/c (1) I didn’t have a fever (though I did get the chills) and (2) the pain was not as bad as my gallstones were and I assumed it would be on par so I paced and googled. Finally I landed on home remedies and recalled ginger is meant to help and that I grabbed a bit of this from DAVIDs not too long ago.
I brewed a mug and it was agony waiting for the pot to boil and the tea to steep. When it was finally done, I tried drinking it but it was hot so I had little sips and honestly, it helped a lot. It soothed the stomach pain and nausea enough that I was able to fall asleep just after 7 am.
Of course my alarm went off at 9 am for class so sleep didn’t really happen but I have microwaved what was left in the mug and am once again sipping on this ginger tea. It doesn’t taste so good that I would seek it out just for a cup and honestly when it was boiling hot last night (I guess technically it was this morning) all I got was ginger and heat (as in from the boiling water) and so I didn’t really care. Now it is cooler and I am getting some more flavors and there is a weird sweetness that sometimes accompanies ginger that I don’t love here in the cup. Also, I think it would have been better off without the lemon…though I guess that would just be DAVIDs other Ginger blend (Super Ginger?).
Anyways, while it doesn’t taste the best, it is palatable AND it did actually help with my stomach issues so this is a definite recommend from me! Also, similar to Cold 911, its a good tea just to have around for when you aren’t feeling your best.

This one sneakily and relatively silently launched last Monday – it’s a lemon ginger herbal tea that uses those type of instant “Honey Ginger” crystals that come in the little one serving packets for digestions. So, suffice to say, the functional focus point of this tea is as a digestion aid. Now, I can’t really speak to that personally since I don’t really actually get bad digestion in order to test if ginger actually helps me or not – but that’s the angle, and I’ve heard from a few people who’ve tried it that they found it soothing on the stomach…
As for the taste? I mean, lemon and ginger is just classic isn’t it!? I like how simple the flavour is – unlike a lot of DT blend there’s not a lot extra thrown in here to complicate the profile. It’s a clean and clear mix of ginger, lemon, lemongrass, and a tiny touch of honey. I find it pretty zesty, and it does have some heat to it as well – but it’s definitely not as intense a ginger flavour as Super Ginger, even though I think that there’s more ginger notes in the cup than lemon.
I’d not a big ginger person so this isn’t my favourite tea – but I respect it, and I think it’s a really solid lemon ginger type of profile!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
