Sonnentor Advent Day 12
I am not a fan of really hot ginger and thought this tea would be a struggle since it has so much ginger in it, but I am actually liking it, far more than I expected, in fact!I was really feeling peckish but it is past bedtime and I should not snack this late, but realized I had not yet had my Sonnentor. Tonight ginger sounded good to me, which is not usual. And this is probably one of my favorites of this assortment so far, probably because I can really taste a few distinct things instead of getting mostly generic herbal flavor.
Ginger is the star of course, coming in at 33% of the blend according to the box. Lemongrass is listed second and is also what I taste right behind the ginger, and I like lemongrass. (Ashman thinks it tastes like Lemon Pledge dusting spray. Not that he has eaten Lemon Pledge, just thinks it smells the same.)I like the way the lemongrass swells at mid to late sip. I also like licorice root and I know I am in the minority here on that, but it is nice here and not too strong. I had to look for it. The cinnamon is softer than I expected. I would not have guessed it as an ingredient if I hadn’t read the box.
