178/365

I’ve not tried all that many savoury teas, but I’ve got on quite well with the ones I have. There are a few untrieds in my cupboard from T2, which came as part of a sampler pack – I think it was called Hottest Brews, or something like that. I’m still trying to say goodbye to the remnants of my cold, so I figured a tea with ginger and turmeric couldn’t hurt. It feels wrong to have a cold when it’s so warm outside, but I do wish the weather would decide what it’s doing. We seem to be bouncing from high summer temps (like 27-30) to more winterish (5-8) within the space of a few days, and I don’t like it.

Anyway. The tea. It brews up to a deep red-brown, and smells pretty medicinal. To taste, it’s sweeter than I expected, with an earthy undertone that reminds me of beetroot. I can taste the carrot – it’s very reminiscent of carrot and corriander soup – and the turmeric is there in the background also. It’s a little dusty, somehow – not so that it catches the back of my throat too badly, but it’s a little distracting. I guess it’s the turmeric…

The ginger is a lot milder than I expected. It doesn’t really make much of an appearance, except towards the end of the sip. It doesn’t even appear to be the kind of ginger flavour that builds in intensity with successive sips. I’m not a huge fan of ginger, so that’s okay with me, but it’s pretty rare that I find a tea containing ginger where the ginger doesn’t dominate.

The one thing I really dislike about this one is the LIQUORICE ROOT. Just, why? I don’t know what it’s doing here, given that it’s supposed to be a savoury tea. It’s completely unnecessary, and when it hits in the mid-sip it totally destroys the pleasant, soupy, earthy flavour that the initial sip promises. If it weren’t for the liquorice, I would love this one…

I also do NOT get the need for liquorice root in any blend. Just no.

Our weather is jumping around like that too. Not a fan.

Feel better.

I love licorice root! If you can find a way to tolerate the flavor of it in the tea at all, the licorice root would actually be really good for your sore throat during your cold. It’s good at coating the throat and acting as an expectorant for clearing mucus.

I don’t mind it so much in small quantities, but I think it’s just one of those things I’m very sensitive to. The throat coating is one of the things I dislike most about it – it reminds me so much of artificial sweetener my mum used to put in tea when I was a child!
