Now, ginger isn't my favorite tea flavor, but having never tried explicitly ginger-flavored green tea yet, I figured this would be worthwhile, especially on sale. I liked it more than I thought I would.

Dry-bag aroma was sharp, crisp, a distinctly peppery ginger that reminded me of a really good "ginger beer" soda. Interspersed with tea leaves, a lot of obvious, irregularly shaped ginger nuggets or granules are evident in the bag, each around 1-2 mm in diameter. I can't recall such a potent ginger smell to a dry tea, to the extent it almost made me sneeze (and that doesn't happen easily).

The liquid brewed up a slightly opaque, yellow hue that became a tan-yellow after a few minutes, tasting nowhere nearly as sharp and spicy as the dry smell. Instead, it was a sweet, smooth ginger ale flavor (instead of ginger beer), but with enough green tea to detect. The peppery sensation came back, just a bit, on the back of the tongue in each sip. Yes, the ginger dominated, but not so much that it would it taste simply like ground-up ginger root in water. The tea gives the mix some body and faintly vegetal character, but doesn't stand out much on its own merit. I hardly got any lemon except in aftertaste. The wet-bag aroma was sweetly and pleasantly gingery as well, with a little more bitterness than the flavor, and lacking the sneezy, pepper-like element.

I suspect folks who enjoy ginger a lot would love this, if it's still widely available. I wonder if the fact I got it on retail discount, and it's not on Stash's website, indicates the tea has been discontinued. In that event, get some while you still can, if you still can.
