drank Zesty Lemongrass by Jazba
1088 tasting notes

Okay, so I was sick 3 weeks ago with covid (for a second time, also had it in April) and per usual, I have some residual effects from having it. I drank a lot of ginger tea when I was ill and it did help my tummy and soothed my throat/cough but didn’t make my lungs feel any differently.
I had low expectations for this tea as this brand is so hit and miss with their teas but wow, what an unexpected, pleasant surprise! This stuff is STRONG and spicy! I took my first sip and actually choked because I wasn’t expecting it to be so spicy! LOVE IT!!! After drinking my mug down, I swear my lungs felt clearer. I’m convinced it’s the chili pepper as that’s what I predominantly taste/feel. It’s not hot in the sense that it burns your mouth, it’s just very bold. They should have just named this one “Zesty Chili Pepper” instead of “Zesty Lemongrass.” I know there are other flavours in there but they are hard to detect for me.
This one gets high marks, super-impressed!

Flavors: Chili, Spicy

Sounds like one for the medicine cabinet next to the peppermint and lemon/ginger!

Bio

I’ve been a member of Steepster since 2014 and decided to finally update my ancient Bio now that it’s 2022. (Updating again in 2024!)

I’ve loved tea my entire life, since I was a kid. Starting with Orange Pekoe, then Irish Breakfast, Rosehip, Earl Grey, Green and White and now, I’ll drink or at least try, just about any tea.

One of my favourite things to do is meeting my friends at the coffee shop, sitting and sipping for hours while we chat and laugh and enjoy each other. We try to do this at least once a week or when our work schedules match up. Tea and coffee brings people together!

I live in Ontario, Canada and work at a Winners/Homesense combo store.
I have a 12 year old cat, Tucker, who is diabetic and asthmatic (and completely toothless) but still enjoys his life to the fullest and he truly is the sweetest boy.(Tucker sadly passed away in 2023, one month after he turned 14.)

I don’t always post every single time I drink tea, I’m kind of sporatic that way but I do enjoy reading what you all are drinking and your reviews.

Stay safe and healthy!
-Jason
