This mouth-watering herbal blend is sure to delight. Wonderful with a splash of cream and a pinch of sugar. It doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy this gingerbread treat. Aromatic and naturally caffeine free.
As I sit here, the fragrance of this tisane is enticing me to take a sip. I have never had freshly baked gingersnap cookies before, but, this is what I would expect them to smell like if I ever happen to try my hand at baking them myself. It smells so wonderful.
And it tastes even better than it smells! It is sweet and delicious – and yes, it tastes very much like gingersnaps.
The flavor is nutty and spiced just right. The ginger is warm and slightly peppery, but, it isn’t a spicy-hot ginger taste. The fruit in this lends a nice depth to the flavor. It doesn’t taste fruity, but it tastes sweeter and a little richer because of the fruit.
After my first cup – which I drank without any additions – I decided I wanted more of this amazing tisane, so I brewed another cup. This time I felt a little adventurous so I added a little bit of turbinado sugar and a splash of milk. What a treat! Yes, it was delicious straight, but with a little milk and sugar the flavors really come to life!
This one is going on my shopping list! I must have more!
