Martin’s shipment of Georgian teas arrived earlier this week and yet the first cup I made from the box is this herbal teabag! I guess it’s what I needed tonight.
This is a great turmeric blend, not too strong in any dimension. There’s an earthy, spicy base of turmeric and a step up from that is a non-dominating ginger zing. I really like the level of spice — it’s not biting but presents as a playful, prickly presence. A welcome touch of acidity might be from the lemon flavor? which blends into the greener lemongrass top note, connecting with a bit of savory basil that in turn reaches down, complementing turmeric’s slightly savory character. I’d say this lives up to its name. It sure tastes and feels good.
I now regret brewing the other bag for Kiki, haha. Thank you, Martin :)
