Happy 2015 everyone! Now that I’m mostly over my cold I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. For our first Tuesday Tea post of the new year we have Lemon Ginger, an herbal tisane from the Persimmon Tree Tea Company. Between being sick the past three weeks and overindulging on holiday goodies I’m in need of something to soothe my tummy. I thought an herbal tisane was the perfect solution to my tummy troubles and this tea did not let me down. It also was a nice change over the peppermint tea I’ve been sucking down by the gallon over the past few weeks.
I know I've mentioned this before, but I’m not normally a fan of citrus flavors. I’ve discovered recently that I really enjoy lemongrass, which while citrusy, is much more mild than pure lemon. Today’s tea combines lemon verbena, lemongrass, and ginger with South African honeybush for a mild and soothing herbal tea. There is only a hint of ginger in this blend and it lacks the bite I was expecting, but overall the tea did helped settle my stomach. A small drizzle of honey did wonders for my sore throat, although I decided to switch to iced tea for a little added relief. Yes, I know it’s supposed to get down to -8°F tonight, but sometimes you need iced tea in the dead of winter. I will admit it’s kind of odd to be sipping on iced tea while wearing thermal underwear and being covered in two blankets. I’ve never once claimed to be normal, just keep that in mind.
My Rating: 83/100
Would I order this again? Yes. This was exactly what I needed tonight and I'll likely start keeping a tin on hand for when I'm sick.
In an effort to be open with my readers I want to let you know that The Persimmon Tree Tea Company has provided me with a tin of tea for review. As always, all opinions are my own.
