On the 13th day of sipdowns..

I feel terrible, my brother has been sick for the past few days and I’m pretty sure I caught it because I slept all day. When I woke up I did not want tea at all, especially since I finished up my Ginger Beer tea the other day. I rifled through my box o’ tea and found a single bag of this from when we went to London.
Holy cow is it lemony. Granted I’m sick so maybe my taste is a bit off but this would be fantastic iced with a little bit of honey or sugar. A few sips into the cup I can’t taste any ginger at all but I can feel it (Ginger has this fresh, tingly feeling to me) and about halfway through the cup it hits you in the face.
Overall, I’m bummed I only had one of these. It’s really really good and I’d love to try it iced or with scones or at a time when I’m not feeling sick.

Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Lemon

I like this one, too. Although I think I prefer Celestial Seasoning’s Jammin’ Lemon Ginger. It tastes like lemon candy and ginger.

Much better left to steep quite some time than just steep and drink it. I find this quite mild with both the ginger and the lemon, although it’s still nice… it’s a “nice” ginger and lemon, not a “no-holds-prisoners” kinda ginger and lemon, which I much prefer.

I pretty much only drink this tea when I’m getting sick, am already sick, or want to be utterly lazy and cosy in a way you can be when home sick but minus the headache (bonus!). And the only way I really drink it is with added lemon juice (nothing fancy, just from one of those plastic bottles you buy in the shop) and a decent amount of honey to balance out the lemon. I tend to be decently ‘sensitive’ to ginger, so it often gets too strong for me if I drink a tea plain, and that’s the case with this one too. But with the honey + lemon, it’s just sheer spicy perfection.

I also have a special mug that this tea is supposed to be drunk out of. It has a moon on it. Yup.

One of my feeling poorly teas as well. It´s teabags, but that just makes it more perfect for when I am not feeling well!

I got this really unusual rose and ginger herbal tea (also in teabags, but really posh ones) as a present once, and I’d just run out of ginger lemon tea so instead I tried adding lemon juice and honey to the rose ginger tea and it was amaaaaazing. Like the champagne of lemon ginger teas. I just wish the damn thing wasn’t so expensive.

Just plain ginger tea on itself can be amazing – just a bit messy to make, particularly when I am not feeling well.

Truth be told, I only drink this tea when I’m feeling under the weather. It has certainly been one of those weeks. I don’t particularly enjoy the taste; it’s far too similar to a cough drop, though I suppose that is the point. I added a good bit of honey to this to up the wellness factor and sipped slowly. I’m not sure there is enough lemon and ginger here to make a real difference, but it does give the feeling that I’m doing something good for my body so it serves its purpose.

I started drinking this tea when I felt that all too familiar pain in my throat and to my amazement I found that it stopped me from developing a full blown cold! Amazing. It tastes pretty good too. It’s the perfect drink for when your under the weather as it warms you right through.

One of my favorite teas. I drink it after every workout and whenever I am sick. There are a lot of other Lemon & Ginger teas, but for me, this one just works. It hits my taste buds just right.

Bought this because I love ginger teas. Go-to tea whenever I have not much time to brew loose leaf and I need something warm for an upset stomach.

I can’t wait to get back to Canada where my collection of tea awaits me…I brought a few teas with me thinking that if I was moving to China there would be plenty of options for buying tea….well, no where close to me! There are supermarket teas that I can’t read and don’t particularly trust. And there are some that I recognize – like this one, which has become a staple for me as I try to ration my favourites that I brought along!

My favourite thing about this tea is that I find it wonderful for an upset stomach, which, unsurprisingly, is fairly common here. It’s a bit weaker than I’d like – if I was home I’d use two teabags, but I try not to go through it too quickly. Ginger is one of my favourite flavours – I’m a huge fan of homemade ginger beer so any tea that is gingery (Davidstea Super Ginger for example) is great for me!

I do find that the bag breaks apart sometimes and I end up with floaty bits of ginger in my timolino. Not a huge deal for me at all but it might bother some people.

A friend brought me two new teas to try from Taiwan – I can’t read the packaging but I think one is a green and one is an oolong. Lemon and ginger is nice but I’ll be happy to switch it up!

I love this tea! It’s got just the right balance of lemon and ginger, and it’s sweet by itself.

I wasn’t so sure about this tea when the aroma first hit me. The first thing that came to mind was “Lemon Pledge” (like the furniture polish). Then I thought “Aw man! I just wasted my money on this tea when I could’ve had Pledge straight from the bottle!” I prepared it with 2 packets of Truvia sweetener since I wasn’t sure about honey flavored Pledge. The tea actually turned out kinda nice though. It’s more like lemon fruit loops! I’ll try it with honey next time.
