Thumbs up!"The flavor of this tea is strong, spicy, and dominated by ginger. The lemon flavor from the lemongrass and lemon myrtle was also present, but certainly not as potent or noticeable as the ginger. "

kteaslogoLemon Ginger Snap is an herbal-green tea blend offered by K Teas. At the time of writing this review, the tea is not listed on their website, so I suspect this one is new to their tea line-up. The blend appears to consist of lemongrass, small pieces of ginger, green tea and perhaps some lemon myrtle. The lemongrass appears to be the most abundant ingredient, followed by the ginger. The scent of this tea is dominated by a very authentic and potent ginger component. I really couldn't get much of a lemon component in the fragrance of the dried blend. Because the amount of green tea leaves in the blend was fairly insignificant when compared to the herbal ingredients, I prepared this tea using hotter (but not quite boiling) water than I normally would use on green tea. The tea brewed to a somewhat opaque copper color that gave off a sinus-clearing ginger aroma. The flavor of this tea is strong, spicy, and dominated by ginger. The lemon flavor from the lemongrass and lemon myrtle was also present, but certainly not as potent or noticeable as the ginger. The lemon-ginger combination did had a medicinal quality, but I still found the tea to be tasty. I found that adding a teaspoon of sugar was needed to smooth out the ginger flavor, which could otherwise be perceived by some as being too intense and too coarse. The green tea really seemed to be an insignificant part of this blend. I couldn't taste it because the ginger and lemon flavors dominated and are far more potent than any green tea flavor. I would characterize this much more as an herbal blend rather than a green tea blend. It would be interesting to try a variation of this blend without the green tea to see if the green tea does actually influence the final flavor. In all, this is a hot-and-spicy blend that is sure to satisfy any ginger craving. If you are not absolutely head-over-heels about ginger, you may find this one a bit too potent.
