Day 23 of our Tea Advent Calendar. Only 2 days until Christmas!! Wind down with today's tea- Lemongrass and Ginger.
This naturally caffeine free tea is the perfect way to relax, unwind and just breathe during this busy time.
This lovingly designed blend of herbs and spices has a balanced taste. The fragrant citrus of the Lemongrass hits the palette followed shortly after with a spicy hit from the ginger and black pepper. Then your taste buds get a blast of the root of glycyrrhizin glabra which contains the natural glycyrrhizic acid (CH62O16), a complex molecule which is 30 times sweeter than sugar.... otherwise simply known as .......Liquorice. Such a small amount that even if you don’t like it normally it works in this blend. So we have citrus, spice and sweet all in the space of maybe only 2 or 3 seconds, the flavours combine and interchange in harmony then you get the subtle coolness of mint. A mixture of Spearmint and Peppermint leave a fresh tingle in the mouth and the taste journey is complete ready for another sip.
In Asia, lemongrass is the go-to for sorting out cold, flu and digestive problems, which makes this tea an ideal post-dinner cuppa (after one too many pigs in blankets..) or when you're feeling slightly under the weather, especially at this time of year!
How We Like It
