To start off, I love the way this tea is described on the sachet – smooth on the palate with a spicy afterglow. How fun is that! So fun, and accurate, I would say. This is a great tasting tea and it is fun to make in my super-cute Tea Forte mug! (see photos below) Mild to start with a sweet and spicy aftertaste that lingers. Neither the ginger of lemongrass overpower one another and blend well with the licorice root, lemon and spearmint for a satisfying cup. Another thing to love about this tea is the USDA organic certification!

Anyone seeking a bold flavored herbal tea with a unique taste should try this one. Because this is a caffeine free herbal tea, there are no worries about when and how much of it you drink! Hooray for that too!

What a tasty tea! I love the blend of lemongrass and ginger. As some of you know I love sweets. The ginger in this tea adds a little hint of sweet without any honey or sugar. While I typically try a sip unsweetened I often add a bit of honey to my cuppa. Not in this case! The tea doesn’t have a sugary taste, but it has a very well balanced hint of sweet so I decided to not mess with a good thing and drank it just as it was blended without adding anything. Abby gave me some of this tea to try but I will have to go out an buy some of my own ASAP!

I also love how this tea is portioned out. With loose tea I sometimes wonder how much tea they really intend that I use. This seemed like a lot of tea in the packet just for one cup, but it worked out perfectly. If you haven’t yet, you should give the ‘single steeps‘ a try.
