This tea isn’t bad. It can be nice with other foods with oriental flavors. I don’t find this tea to be anything to get excited about, is all. It is green and it is ginger, no more or less.

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.
Hmmm…I am an avid of fan of ginger and green tea, so I thought hands down I would love this. Not so much. It’s not terrible, but not bad. I’m not sure what it is that I don’t like about it. Maybe it’s the pear? I’m not sure..either way..I just find this tea weird. I drank the whole box, and was hoping I would like it more. That wasn’t the case.
