White Ginger Pear/Tea Forte

I can’t believe I am enjoying a ginger tea to the point that I am happily resteeping! I NEED ginger for digestive issues but I have never enjoyed it, especially when there is enough of it to actually do you some good. It is hot, it is spicy, and I am a plain vanilla kind of gal.

One thing I do hold dear is licorice root. I know a lot of people don’t care for it, but I love the sweetness and body it gives to a blend and I prefer it to stevia…and that’s an understatement.

I have the loose leaf version of this tea and the website warns that the pyramid version may have slightly different ingredients so keep that in my mind if you decide to try it.

The aroma is GINGER, first, foremost, front and center. Since it is the first ingredient listed I assume it constitutes more of the blend. The first sip is soft and sweet, and the more you drink, the more the ginger builds.

Pear is a delicate flavor to me even when eating a fresh pear right out of hand, so pear with ginger is no contest. Ginger is definitely going to dominate. The nice thing is that you get little fruity flavors peeking now and again, adding another dimension to the tea. The white tea base is a nice little boost of antioxidants.

The tin lists all of the ingredients as being organic, so another bonus! Finally, a ginger winner for me! This is one I would definitely restock and consider it a treat to drink when feeling under the weather, or just a cup to enjoy.

Ginger Lemongrass from Tea Forte. . . . . .

I was gifted this adorable box of Tea Forte silken infusers tea. There are several flavors but I just can’t stop drinking the ginger lemongrass. Ginger and lemongrass are two of my favorite flavors. I’ve also been a fan of drinking ginger tea for awhile now.

Combining the two flavors is absolutely brilliant in my opinion. Everything is balanced in this blend. I can taste and smell both the ginger and the lemongrass. The ingredients include lemon peel, which complements the lemongrass. It also has spearmint leaves, so it has a very, very subtle taste of mint.

Everything about this tea is soothing. The smell is invigorating and calming, and the taste is fresh, soothing, and very calming. This is a tea you drink when you have a little bit of a stomach ache as ginger and mint are very helpful for that.

I also should mention the adorable tea bags are actually cylinders, and there is a little leaf at the end of the string that happily bobs around as your tea is brewing.

Everything about this tea is absolutely wonderful. I can’t wait to try the other flavors, maybe once I’ve had all the ginger lemongrass!

Taster’s Review:

I’ve tasted a few black currant black teas over the years, and I really can’t remember one that I disliked.  But, I can’t remember one that I liked better than this one, either.

Having previously reviewed this tea, I was curious to find out if my thoughts on this tea have changed at all…

The aroma is still fruity – subtle before brewing, and developing more fully in the coppery liquor.   One thing that I am noticing though, is that the black current essence seems a bit stronger in this cup than I had previously indicated.  It is almost wine-like in its depth of flavor.  It doesn’t taste fermented, but it does have a nice, fruity flavor with a pleasant level of astringency – like a good, dry wine.

The black tea base is bold and flavorful.  It is brisk enough to be that first cup of the morning, yet smooth enough to make a good afternoon cuppa (perfect for that afternoon pick-me-up!)  The rich flavor would make this a thirst-quenching choice for iced tea as well.

Overall, a very pleasing cup of tea!
