I have a fairly good sized tea collection, but find myself reaching for this everyday. It’s a grat twist on a traditional green tea, with just a subthe hint of ginger and a note of pear.

The version I’m reviewing is the re-released one. Again, I’m a sucker for ginger, and that’s the dominant flavor. The lemon grass adds a sweet, mild tartness that I actually like with the ginger. The green tea provides a fresh body for the ginger, but is slightly overwhelmed again by the ginger itself. You know for sure that you are drinking a green tea, but again, the ginger is dominant. I like this one on it’s own or with honey, and it’s actually pretty good for when I’m sick.
Definitely not the best tea I’ve had, albeit enjoyable nevertheless.
Flavors: Ginger, Green, Lemongrass
I didn’t purchase a whole box of this tea, I picked it out of a variety. Usually ginger has a distinct aroma and taste, but the flavor in this is fairly light. I could smell it more than I can taste it. I couldn’t sense the “sweet note of pear”, but I did taste a very slight “dirt” aftertaste. Not a great tea for me.
Flavors: Dirt, Ginger
Quite a spicy one!
When I brewed it for the first time, it tickled my nose.
To be honest, the best thing you can do with this is add a bit of sugar, pop it in some popsicle makers, let it freeze and you got a good, cold summer snack!
When brewed, though, it was a bit too spicy for my tastes. I could barely taste the green tea.
A bit expensive for a tea to make popsicles with, but you could try to replicate the mixture and make a large batch. (luckily, I got it as a gift.)
I thought I really liked this tea. I had a cup at a meeting once, with a bit of honey. It was quite good. Then I made this mistake of buying a box for myself. I don’t know what to say about this tea, other than I don’t like it. The green tea flavour is a bit off, the ginger flavour is a bit off. Sweetened or unsweetened, this just doesn’t do it for me.
A “warm,” relaxing tea with ginger as the predominate flavor accompanied by citrus notes from the lemon and lemongrass. The pear taste is subtle and perhaps adds a sweetness to the tea, but I probably wouldn’t have identified it as pear without having read the label. The green tea itself was mostly masked by the other flavors.
