Sipdown! 59/365

Well, I don’t taste gin, which is good because I don’t like it, but bad because this tea is called “Gin Fizz”… Instead, I taste a light, citrussy note (lime?) on a decent green base. So basically, a citrus green. It’s not bad, but nothing special. Thanks for sharing, MissB!

(Reading the tea info, I see it’s supposed to be lemon/ginger? I am not noticing the ginger, but it could be because the tea is pretty light.)

ETA: Ginger very obvious in the second infusion. Not sure how I missed it.

Sipdown (130)!

Thank you MissB for the sample!

Cold Brewed this one; I have a lot of experience with Gin (it’s my hard alcohol of choice), as well as some experiences with Gin Fizzes, and my opinion is that Gin should be consumed cold and only cold. So that’s what I did with this one!

Overall, it was a pretty big flop. Not that it tasted bad; it was just really subpar with bland, predictable sort of flavour notes: Ginger, lemongrass and lemon/less distinct citrus in particular. It had that super distinct licorice root sweet finish; but I don’t see any mention of there being licorice root in it though. I find that hard to believe.

Yeah; didn’t remind me of a Gin Fizz and had just an average at best flavour; this one wasn’t a winner for me. It’d have been one thing if it didn’t taste like Gin Fizz, but was really unique or tasty. Such was not the case though. You can’t love ‘em all though; thankfully I don’t seem to be in the minority here…

Today’s word of the day is: exorbitant! Exorbitant means ‘going beyond the limits of what is fair, reasonable, or expected’.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass, Licorice

I love gin and I have high expectations for any tea that’s supposed to evoke gin. I’m tempted to try blending my own – lots of juniper, lemon peel and cucumber (I’m a Hendricks fan), with just a smattering of coriander, cinnamon and cardamom.

OMGsrsly

I am so glad you also tasted licorice. That was just all sorts of no. :/

Thanks to MissB and Sil for the sample. :) Well. “Sample.”

Dry, this smells amazing. So limey and fresh! Unfortunately, once steeped it has a scent I really don’t care for. I’m not sure if it’s the green tea or the lime peel or what.

Sipping on it, it’s mostly lime and a bit of ginger. I could see this being really good sweetened and chilled, but… I’m not a huge fan of iced tea unless it’s a cold steeped fruity thing.

Tasty, but not quite for me. :) Oh well. I have more teas to try!

Another tea from the magic MissB box of goodies! I have a bunch that i need to work my way through a little faster, but i just haven’t had time to settle in and take a look at them as much as i’d like. I picked out two today and did manage to drink them but that was hours ago and since then i got seriously distracted planning an epic road trip this weekend haha.

first off, i am brewing all these at a cooler temp than the instructions mention – i just can’t bring myself to do 200 for greens. Secondly…most of these are greens, which are not my favourite, but as with all teas, i’m keeping an open mind.

This one was actually pretty interesting. There was most assuredly ginger in this one…though not enough for my tastes :) it also smells a lot like one of the herbals i have from tea gschwender…but tastes nothing like it. this is lemon and ginger and a little hint of pepper…but the flavours are subtle. Too subtle for me..but still a tasty cup! thanks a bunch missB!

Forgot to review this! Slight ginger spice/bite to this tea, but not enough (for me). I understand why it was called this – a very subtle tea, that I can see being made into a cocktail or fizzy drink quite easily. A bit more complex than your basic lemon ginger tea, but only slightly.

Flavors: Ginger, Hay, Lemon

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
