Caveat: While tolerant of them in some combinations and contexts, I'm not a big fan of either lemon or ginger. Please take this rating in the context of assessing the nominal mix of two flavors that, while not repulsive to me, aren't particular favorites either.

When I do have ginger, I look for it to give a good, strong spice kick to make the experience worthwhile. This did not. Only in the initial dry-bag scent did this tea offer even a hint of ginger's rightful spiciness. When I have lemon, I brace for a jolt of sourness delivered. This did not (a good thing to me, since sourness is my least-favorite taste sensation). Instead, it's a muted, smooth, creamy, rather sweet beverage, slightly lemony and gingery, that brought a surprisingly noticeable vanilla-cream character to both the direct flavor and wet-bag aroma that was not evident in the dry scent. Cinnamon is on the ingredients list, but I didn't detect that at all.

Regardless of my doubts about probiotic bacteria's survivability in boiling water—a skepticism I've beaten to death in a few other probiotic-tea reviews—this herbal tea presented a conundrum. It didn't taste much like what was advertised, but it was a surprisingly pleasant beverage to drink...even more so after inadvertently letting some of it get cold.

In summary: here's a hot tea best consumed cold, with bacteria that may just be dead on arrival, tasting only a little like what its name implies, and much like something else a little better. Cue up the Twilight Zone music...

I found packs of these in the house we moved into. The ginger is definitely most notable in the aroma before it's brewed, but I still taste it in the drink. It's flavor is strong but not potent, and very blended. No individual flavor really stands out. It has a rather creamy feel.

I don't know how effective probiotics are when consumed through tea, but that wasn't why I tried it, anyway. It's a decent herbal tea when you're in the mood for it.

This herbal tea was a little bit odd tasting. I didn't know that it was a probiotic when I tried it; I had it in a cafe.

It didn't taste much at all like any other lemon ginger blends I have tried previously. I can't notice much ginger at all, and the lemon is also mild. I normally like lemon ginger herbal teas because I like the strong aroma and peppery sensation caused by the ginger. This blend had none of it.

The aroma had a muted spiciness, reminiscent of nutmeg, allspice, or mace, which surprises me because I see none of these ingredients in the blend.

I probably wouldn't drink this again; the lack of strong ginger aroma was pretty disappointing, and I found the flavor a bit odd, with some "off" qualities.

The probiotic included in this, Bacillus coagulans, is interesting, and seems like it would be beneficial to include in your diet, but it also seems a bit odd to put it in a tea bag instead of some other form of food.
