Varieteas Box (October) – 6/30
I’m surprised at how strong this tea tastes, especially from a bag. There’s a really nice lemon curd aroma wafting from the cup, which I wasn’t expecting, with a little ginger-ness that follows.
First sip, and this is really nice. The ginger is more pronounced and it melds with the lemon curd to give it a sweet, cake-like flavour. It reminds me of those slices from Mr. Kipling! If they brought out a gingerbread and lemon curd one, this is how I imagine it would taste.
This is far nicer than I was expecting. To me, lemon and ginger blends are usually somewhere closer to a cold remedy drink, but this doesn’t fall that way at all. It’s far more dessert like, than medicinal.
I’d happily drink this again!
