Stash Lemon Ginger Tea is Very Flavorful, but Smooth Too

Pros:Caffeine free, good ingredients

Cons:Availability

The Bottom Line: This tea has a nice rich taste, is a nice combination of lemon and ginger, and isn't overpowering.


While pregnant, I searched for teas that I could have - ones without caffeine or herbs that I couldn't consume.  I found a few ginger teas (which I was hoping would help with morning sickness), but one of the teas that sounded most promising was Stash Lemon-Ginger Tea.

"This lively tea offers wide - awake flavor without caffeine. It has a smooth lemon flavor with a piquant, lingering bite of ginger." (StashTea.com)


Stash Lemon Ginger Tea

I found this tea at the grocery store for about $3.50.  However, I haven't been able to find it again at the grocery store or health food store.  The grocery store tends to have a limited selection of Stash Tea flavors, so perhaps I'll have better luck with other stores.  You get a box of 20 individually wrapped tea bags, and the box doubles as a dispenser (you tear off a tab at the bottom of the box).  Each tea bag comes with a string and a tag, and I compost the whole thing when I am done.


Ingredients

ginger root, lemongrass, lemon flavor, safflower, hibiscus, citric acid. Contains: soy.


My Thoughts

The directions on this tea recommend brewing for 3-5 minutes.  A strong aroma is released right away - for instance pouring boiling water over the tea bag a foot from my face, I instantly smell the aroma from the tea.  I definitely pick up on the lemongrass, with a touch of ginger in it.

This tea brews a deep golden-brown color (despite the hibiscus, not reddish!).  Despite a really strong aroma, this tea isn't overbearing.  It isn't overwhelming, which I am sure lemon, lemongrass, or ginger could be.  However, the flavor is very rich, with lots of taste.  Stash did a great job of combining flavors though, because the lemon and the ginger are smooth.

The ginger isn't really spicy, but it does leave a little bit of a spicy aftertaste (feel) in your mouth the more you drink.  It isn't uncomfortable and it doesn't burn, but has a touch of spice from the ginger.  It does seem to get stronger as you get towards the bottom of the cup, so be prepared for a little bit of a bite as you finish up this tea.  However, I brew it on the long side, and if you preferred a lighter, milder tea, you could always just brew for a shorter amount of time (and perhaps get two infusions out of a bag!).

Instead of having too much of a bite that I experience with a lot of teas that have lemon or ginger (or both), this tea seems to be very smooth and enjoyable.  Normally I would like a really strong tea.  This is definitely flavorful, but it isn't overwhelming, like ginger or lemon often are.


Overall

I have other ginger-lemon or ginger-fruit/herbal ginger teas where the ginger is too overwhelming, but I really like it in this case.  This is a nice refreshing tea that is good for the taste or if you want to soothe your stomach!
