Turmeric Ginger from Rishi. . . .

Ginger tea is one of my favorite things to drink, and I’m always trying to find ways to get turmeric in my diet so this tea is right up my alley! This tea has ginger and turmeric, of course but it also has licorice root, lemongrass which is another favorite of mine, and also orange and lemon peel and orange and lemon oil. The taste of the ginger and citrus is there, but it definitely takes a back seat to the turmeric. Turmeric can be very overpowering if too much is used as I’ve learned when I experiment with making Read More

CTRL+ALT+DEL from Pluck Teas. . . .

I had this once before, hot and hated it. Let’s see how it is iced… Well, first thing I noticed is this iced cup has less sediment than the original hot cup had. It brewed up a cloudy but light golden yellow but less cloudy than the hot brew. Hopefully both these things will result in a cleaner taste than what I recall. The smell is strongly of ginger but with lemon in the background as well as a touch of musk that I am thinking is probably from a mix of this tea and some scent remaining from the Read More

Ginger and Citrus Green Tea from Palais des Thés. . . .

My thoughts when I checked my next sample to review…”Argh! Ginger is the first word!” The anguished scream is because ginger and I have a strange relationship. I like a hint of ginger adding sparkle to tea or cookies or food. But when there is a lot of ginger, it makes me cry a little. It can be so hot! And when you add to that the fact that I have to carry spicy ginger candy to help with my lifelong stomach issues, you can see where I don’t excited to see it in my tea. My fears were unfounded Read More

Ginger Snap from Pluck Teas. . . .

When I see ginger teas, I think lattes. Don’t know why but probably something with the spice and the creaminess that just speaks to me. I mean, people make chai in milk more times than not so following that mindset, I brewed this up as a latte. There is a strong ginger flavor here. Not much of a kick but the flavor is present as is the cinnamon which sits on the tip of the tongue. The spices are strong and take over the creaminess of the steamed milk. They also work together to create a dark baked good flavor Read More

Here’s to the New Year! Let’s Toast From BlendBee. . . . .

  Happy New Year one and all!  I hope the New Year has treated all of our dear readers well.  What better way to start the New Year than with a tea that is completely out of my comfort zone. I thought this could be the year that I really try and expand my tea horizons with ginger. Ginger and I have a love hate relationship. Until recently, I absolutely couldn’t handle anything with ginger in it. But I’ve found that  I’ve started to really enjoy ginger and even ate candied ginger. . .and loved it. I’m wondering if my Read More
