Thumbs up!"This cup provides a nice amount of heat from the ginger! Since I happen to love that ginger's spicy bite, I am quite the smitten kitten."

rishigingerlimeorg"The dry and pleasantly flavored West Indian Lime variety gives our Organic Ginger Lime Rooibos a unique and zesty citrus flavor with notes of ginger and rare spices." ---Rishi website.

After becoming hooked on Rishi's Vanilla Mint Puerh, I recently placed an order for more of Rishi's flavored puerh. Allow me to digress for a moment and say that NO ONE does flavored puerh like Rishi. In my opinion, they set the standard. I digress. I also threw a 1 oz package of this into my cart when placing my order. I love lime, I love ginger, and I love green rooibos and especially in the summer as it is usually excellent iced. Me liking this blend is likely a no-brainer.

Rishi lists the ingredients of this blend as Organic Fair Trade Certified™ green rooibos, Organic ginger, Organic lemongrass, Organic lemon myrtle, Organic licorice root and natural essential oils of lime and tangerine. One nice thing about green rooibos is that like it's red cousin, it is nearly impossible to screw up. I scooped this generously, infused it in boiling water and came back about 5 min later---Wha-la! Perfecto! The liquid brewed up to an orangey golden color. The flavor is very zesty! This cup provides a nice amount of heat from the ginger! Since I happen to love that ginger's spicy bite, I am quite the smitten kitten. However, I would warn others who are not a fan of blends that possess this kind of heat to avoid this one as the ginger is fairly strong in this cuppa. While I think that the citrus flavor overall errs in favor of lime, I found that at some temps it tasted a bit lemony. I think that this one would be a good candidate to cook with and I can imagine that it could be infused into a delicious salad dressing. I am also looking forward to enjoying a cup of it with some tilapia tomorrow. I also tried this one iced and it is excellent. Further, the ginger stood up to a splash of dairy nicely. Overall, this blend is zesty, refreshing and quite versatile. I do think that this blend is one of those love it or hate it kind of things, but I happen to love it!
