Republic of Tea Honey Ginseng Green Tea Review

A Pleasant & Slightly Sweet Green Tea

Summary : This is a perfect tea for anyone who doesn't much care for the sometimes "grassy" taste of green tea. Infused in this tea is honey and ginseng, making for a very tasty, slightly sweet and "no-grass" taste.

Review : Honey and green tea are simply meant to get along. Indeed, honey and tea are simply meant for each other. Honey is a perfect sweetener for tea, as it doesn't overwhelm the often subtle flavor(s) of the tea itself. As such, I'm always up to try a tea that has honey infused into the tea. Throw in a little ginseng and, well, I'm in paradise.

As such, I couldn't resist ordering the Honey Ginseng green tea during my last order from the Republic of Tea.

The Honey Ginseng green tea from the Republic of Tea contains the following ingredients : China green tea, linden flowers, polle, eleuthero, Panax ginseng and natural flavoring.

Here is how the Republic of Tea describes this tea : "A relaxing blend combines the ancient healthy properties of China green tea with Panax ginseng and full blossom honey. This delicious, subtly sweet tea offers a peaceful sipping experience."

This tea is moderately aromatic. It doesn't have a overwhelming aroma about it...but it's not weak either. Sort of "in-between" your all-too-typical bagged tea and the frequent overpowering aroma of a quality loose-leaf tea.

The flavor of this tea is excellent. Gone is any sort of "grassy" taste due to the green tea. Instead, you'll receive a nice mix of slightly sweet honey along with ginseng. These two ingredients seem to mix perfectly, creating a slightly sweet yet quite light tea.

The after-taste of this tea is quite simply delightful. I absolutely loved this after-taste...as it was basically a "honey flavored after taste." The best way to describe it is as if someone slopped some very stick honey all over your mouth and which would not fully dissolve for at least 30 minutes. I was especially surprised at the duration of the after-taste, considering this was a bagged tea.

Recommendation : Yes. Anyone who loves honey will adore this tea. And if you need a break from "traditional green tea" and still want your antioxidants, this is an ideal tea to try.
