(1st steep: 4 min) This tea is sweeter than I was expecting. You do get a slight warming from the ginger. I imagine this would be a great tea during the winter when your sinuses are acting up. You get more citrus zest in the tea than citrus fruit flavors. My first guess would be orange. A good amount of spice from the ginger with a little bit of pepper. I am hoping the ginger spice is present in the second steeping.
(2nd steep: 4 min) This tea is a good deal less intense in the second brewing. If you are thinking of a second steeping, I would recommend increasing the time by a minute to a total of 5 minutes. There is still some spiciness from the ginger, but it is more mellow. More of the sweetness from the citrus comes through in this steeping. I feel comfortable in saying that it is orange zest flavor. However, it was better in the first steeping.

Cautionary note if you are using a plastic steeping vessel it will get dyed yellow from the turmeric. I recommend using stainless steel for this tea.
