As a fan of ginger, and only having tried a handful of turmeric blends, I wanted to see how these two will pair together!
Description: “A refreshing blend of turmeric and ginger to detox and heal.”
Review: I want to first note that this is a part of CitizenTea’s “wellness” line, the description above is how the brand showcased the tea. However, as I have stated on the blog, I only rate teas based on the senses.
That being said, I was excited for the blend because I really enjoy ginger! The dry blend stood out because of the bright yellow from the turmeric, which coated all the other ingredients in the blend. There was also a faint turmeric smell from the blend, which was more citrus-y after steeping.
The liquor was a light yellow with little turmeric pieces suspended in it with a ginger smell. As someone who enjoys the ‘heat’ from the ginger, I was happy that there was a good amount in this one.
The first flavour was the ginger and it caused a slight tingle in the back of the throat. It was followed by the lemon and citrus, and then some turmeric. The lemon overwhelmed all the other notes. I really enjoyed the interweaving of the ginger and the turmeric (4/5 rating).
