The marriage of lemon and ginger, need we say more? Great hot with a dash of honey but equally at home with a few ice cubes to chill it down.

Nice! This Lemon Aid Herbal Tisane from The Rabbit Hole is really refreshing! There is a really nice balance between the ginger and the citrus-y tones here, the ginger is not overpowering … it doesn’t have that high-powered pepper kick to it. Instead, it is warm and soothing and it complements the citrus flavors of the tisane.
Like the ginger, I am finding the lemon-y notes to be somewhat subdued, but, it has a really lovely, sweet lemon taste rather than a pucker-y lemon flavor. There is, of course, some tart and tangy notes to the lemon and these are most noticeable in the aftertaste where I feel a little tingle on my tongue. The aftertaste also offers some of the peppery tones of the ginger … but it is still quite subtle. It’s very pleasant.
I drank this hot, since the weather is still so cold outside, and I found it to be very comforting and cozy to drink hot, but as it cooled, I found it to be very refreshing, like lemonade. I did notice that some of the flavors tapered slightly as it cooled, so I would recommend brewing it strong if you’re making iced tea with this.
This is the kind of tea that you want to keep on hand for the times when you might be feeling a bit under the weather, because it’s so soothing to the throat. I am not feeling under the weather at the moment, but, I did notice how nice it felt on my throat, regardless!
A very nice tisane!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
