Steeped with just boiling water for 5 minutes. Served in enamel tin mug.

Notes of ginger and lemongrass on the nose. I'm not getting much lemon to be honest, perhaps this is just my palate. In retrospect with this comment, it may be better off with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice as one might add to a good black tea.

Unfortunately the thing that sticks to me with this tea is a syrupy sweet mouthfeel that lingers on the tongue. I have a poor sense of smell but this coating shines through that fact to re-coat my cheeks with each sip. Perhaps the ginger? But it doesn't have any of the pleasant qualities that a good ginger chew might, which leads me down the path of feeling that this is a wellness tea instead of a pleasant herbal infusion.

That ginger though, I do enjoy. Far from the initial bite of a prominent herbal tea like tumeric, the ginger when steeped at 5 minutes creeps in.
Albeit at the finish of each sip, and after the drinker acknowledges the described coating, then in a flash it fades back.

These redeeming qualities of ginger within the tea raise the rating and add to the aroma/flavor but I can't help leaving this on the shelf if there are other options as the tongue feel just gets ruined by the odd notes that pass over the tongue, and in not getting much lemon at all.

A quick aside from the commercial description; Yogi mentions "tart lemon" and "refreshing peppermint" right in their description alongside Ginger. Where are those flavors? It's more like someone dropped a hard candy in hot water and threw some ginger on top. At least it's relatively inexpensive.

It's not bad! I have not tried it iced, but hot with or without sweetener it's fine - especially if you have a cold or allegies. Not overly gingery and a bit of a lemon "blast" at first - but it grew on me. Just the right punch of gingery-goodness.

Inexpensive and bagged for convenience

As a fan of both lemon and ginger, I got plenty of those flavors in this tea and enjoyed both. Though I think "medicinal" teas generally oversell their usefulness for addressing specific ailments, I could certainly see how the citrus and spice in this would make you *feel* better if you had the sniffles. Also, when my boyfriend smelled and tasted this tea, he commented that it reminded him of Theraflu. It definitely has a similarly sharp (but pleasant and naturally sweet) taste. There's no tea of any kind in this product, which gives it a fresh, strong, pure, balanced flavor that needs no additional sweetener.
