Thumbs up!"I enjoy lemongrass and found the union of the lemongrass with the licorice, mint and ginseng flavors to be cleansing, refreshing and even invigorating due to the ginseng. However, ginger, is there ginger in this?"

mightyleafgingertwist"Ginger Twist herbal tea is a harmonious mix of lemongrass, tropical fruits, and mint fueled with a touch of ginger and ginseng. A lush and magical infusion, Ginger Twist helps promote calm, focus and good health with a powerful dose of antioxidants." ---Mighty Leaf website.

The little silken tea pouches crafted by Mighty Leaf have become a staple in my desk drawer at work. If you are unfamiliar with them, they are similar to tea bags but hold actual loose leaf tea and have enough room in them for the loose leaf to stretch out and do their thang. I like Mighty Leaf's sachets because they offer the convenience of a tea bag but offer the taste of loose leaf. They are also individually packaged and have a decent shelf life.

Mighty Leaf lists the ingredients in this as lemongrass, mint, lemon, orange, licorice, apple, papaya, ginger, ginseng, and natural flavors. The aroma coming from the dry tea pouch is primarily that of the lemongrass and mint. I prepared my cup using water brought to a full boil and infused the tea pouch for close to 7 min. Mighty Leaf suggests a 5-7 minute infusion. While this is called Ginger Twist, the ginger is a relatively minor player in the flavor profile, which I found a bit odd. In order, the primary flavors of the blend are the lemongrass, licorice, mint, ginseng and then the ginger. While I sense there is a bit of fruitiness to this blend that would likely be missed if the fruits were not included, they were not distinguishable to me as individual flavors.

I think this is one of those cases where the name sets it up for possible disappointment. When something is called Ginger Twist, then I am looking for at least a moderate ginger presence in the flavor profile. In this case, the ginger is almost AWOL and doesn't deliver. Even once I had finished the entire cup, no heat from the ginger had built up in my mouth. If you cast the lack of ginger aside, the flavor profile of the tisane is pleasant. I enjoy lemongrass and found the union of the lemongrass with the licorice, mint and ginseng flavors to be cleansing, refreshing and even invigorating due to the ginseng. However, ginger, is there ginger in this? This is the type of blend that I would consider reaching for when feeling a little under the weather. While I don't see myself surfing the Mighty Leaf website just to pick up some of this, I could see myself throwing some of these in my shopping cart when ordering other items from Mighty Leaf. Overall, Ginger Twist is decent, but don't buy it thinking that there is much ginger presence.
