      A very mild ginger tea. I steeped 2 grams of tea in 8 oz of 190°F water for 2 minutes to avoid bitterness. Good tea for those who don't enjoy an intense ginger flavor.

      Very nice ginger tea yet nothing stood out as exceptional. Does the trick in settling your stomach!

      The ginger explosion I was expecting was simply not present in this tea. Whether that may be a point either for or against for you, review reader, I find it actually mellowed out the black tea and sweetened the blend. I'm not a huge ginger tea fan but this one is good as far as ginger teas go.

      Ginger! The flavor really punches through, but doesn't overpower the main tea. It's good, and not just a hot ginger ale like I was expecting.

      Very nice ginger flavor and aroma. The base tea is a little too astringent for me, but the bitterness can be minimized by brewing at a lower than boiling temperature. The ginger isn't spicy hot here, just very flavorful.

      The ginger flavor is decent, but on the subtle side and it feels a little flat. It also went past normal astringency to completely drying my mouth out in an unpleasant way.

      I remember this being stronger a long time ago, but people complained that it was 'too gingery', Shame, because it used to be really good. As it is now, it's just okay.

      I really wanted to like this because I love ginger in a black tea, but the ginger flavor was far too weak for me.

      This blend can not decide if it wants to be ginger or be black. The ginger isn't prevalent enough to really make a difference and the black base is just... there. If I want a ginger tea I'll go with a herbal blend.

      It's a strong tea but great for tummy issues and digestion.
