This tea came in my little care package I received from my dear friend who lives in the UK. When I saw that it was a gingerbread green tea, my mind instantly thought of a Chai type tea, so i figured I would make it and add a little sugar and coconut milk.
But the directions on the package said to not add milk. I had my doubts, but decided to not be a rebel and listen to the instructions. I was very pleasantly surprised! It has a definite sweet, cake like flavor.
The ginger flavor is definitely there, but it isn’t too strong and is not spicy or bitter at all. This is definitely one of my favorite teas I’ve tried this year. It needed no sweetener at all. It tasted like dessert in a cup. I really don’t know how they did it, as the ingredients are just green tea, ginger root and natural flavoring.
But it tastes so much more complex than three simple ingredients. I would be happy if I could drink this every day for the rest of my life! I could just imagine having this tea during the holidays, with a fireplace roaring and cheerful music on in the background. Or instead of hot chocolate, having a cup of this after doing something in the snow.
This is the third Twinings tea I’ve tried, and I am very impressed by each flavor. They are all perfectly balanced, naturally sweet and just a real treat. Even though the weather is warming up, this is still a very delicious tea to try.
If all gingerbread tasted as delicious as this tea, I would eat a lot more gingerbread!!
Here’s the scoop!

Green tea with ginger and golden syrup flavour.
The sweet aroma of a traditional cake shop. The tangy warmth of gingerbread, baked to perfection. With real ginger pieces and golden syrup flavour, this is an entirely new take on traditional green tea. One that’s utterly surprising… yet wonderfully familiar.
All natural ingredients, sugar-free and only 4 calories a cup. Who’d have thought green tea could be so indulgent?
