I was not looking forward to trying this tea. The idea of drinking turmeric and ginger sounds pretty gross to me. However, it’s not quite as bad as I thought it might be. It’s actually drinkable and if someone loves ginger and turmeric they might like this tea. Actually I DO like ginger and turmeric in food, just not my tea. The lemony touch makes it go down a little easier. It’s nice and warming on the throat so not a total waste for a tea.

This tea is ok. I don’t really know what other words to describe it. The first smell is very refreshing. But the taste is a bit lackluster. I think it may also be because I don’t particularly like turmeric, but the citrus is certainly nice. The citrus comes out significantly more in the aftertaste, which is ok. I think I will add a couple cubes of dried pineapple to sweeten it and flavor it a bit more

Lemony fresh and uplifting with a ginger finish makes for a refreshing cup of tea. While the taste was great, I felt it was lacking substance. Generally I tend to blend herbal teas with other types of teas, as herbal teas always seem to be lacking something. As such I have paired this with a chai and blended them together, and they seem to cover each others weaknesses beautifully.

Lemony citrus with subtle spice on the nose. Very clean smelling. Visually fun with small bits of ginger and turmeric interspersed with fine green sprigs.
Taste: Ooo. This is very different from what I expected. Earthy, creamy and sweet with a lingering sweetness. Less bite to the ginger than I expected. I get a little brightness in the overall flavor as well. This could be a herbal alternative to hot cocoa, perhaps.

(1st steep: 4 min) This tea is sweeter than I was expecting. You do get a slight warming from the ginger. I imagine this would be a great tea during the winter when your sinuses are acting up. You get more citrus zest in the tea than citrus fruit flavors. My first guess would be orange. A good amount of spice from the ginger with a little bit of pepper. I am hoping the ginger spice is present in the second steeping.
(2nd steep: 4 min) This tea is a good deal less intense in the second brewing. If you are thinking of a second steeping, I would recommend increasing the time by a minute to a total of 5 minutes. There is still some spiciness from the ginger, but it is more mellow. More of the sweetness from the citrus comes through in this steeping. I feel comfortable in saying that it is orange zest flavor. However, it was better in the first steeping.

Cautionary note if you are using a plastic steeping vessel it will get dyed yellow from the turmeric. I recommend using stainless steel for this tea.

Warm, just a tad bit spicy, and very refreshing, I really enjoyed this tisane. It has a very smooth mouthfeel and a mellow disposition, accented nicely by a slight bite of ginger. Very good…I’d actually like to keep this on hand, and I don’t normally drink herbals.

Dry leaf smells surprisingly creamy and lemony. It is very pretty with little pieces of dried orange turmeric, green tiny lemongrass pieces, and dried ginger.

OK,,, I make a homemade tisane with fresh turmeric, lemon, and honey so I was wondering how this would taste using dried turmeric. I do like it, the turmeric is not as prominent- tasting when it is dried.
This tisane is really naturally sweet,,,I had to look at the ingredients to see if there was a drop of stevia added but it is just a very good blend (good bc I don’t like stevia lol).
This has sweet flavors of lemon, almost a creamy edge (this must be the oils on my palate), and just a touch of a ginger taste. The turmeric really just lends its color to the liquor.
I do like the taste of fresh turmeric but it is a stronger and acquired taste,,,so this herbal would be a great introduction for someone wanting to try the health benefits of turmeric. Plus I like having a back up bc sometimes my store is out of fresh turmeric and fresh turmeric can mold if you don’t use it quickly.

I had to google the image of turmeric. If I’d see it in grocery store I’d think its ginger. Can you store it in a freezer?

Lee

It is a relative of ginger but it is bright bright orange even showing through its skin, it is so orange,,,and smaller than ginger so you would know it was turmeric rather than ginger.
I wouldn’t freeze it,, but I think you can freeze ginger so you probably could freeze it. I like to just have those things fresh to get the most antioxidants possible.

I peel mine and keep it in fridge, it rarely dries out as I use it in smoothies. There have been the odd few that turn to bone but then I grate them into curries. Be careful, the orange color is steadfast and a bit hard to get off cutting boards and counter tops.

My Steepster Select box came yesterday at the perfect time. I was feelin a little bit ill and this one perked me right up.
This is better than any regular old lemon ginger I have tried… I definitely taste more of an orange flavor, and the turmeric is nice. I’m definitely ordering this if it is available.

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.
