Teavent 2018: TeaRevv Day 9 Golden Turmeric

GOLDEN TURMERIC: Black and green teas don’t often blend easily but this mix brings the two together very successfully with just enough turmeric for the slightly dry pungency of the spice to be subtly evident. An extra tingle of ginger makes for a lovely moorish balance of flavours.” [source]

 

In my teacup today is my ninth day of Christmas teas from TeaRevv. Today’s selection is Golden Turmeric. This tea really was not my cup of tea! The strong spices of turmeric, and harsh ginger were going to have to do a lot to win me over, and sadly this tea did not quite hit the mark. The ginger was very sharp, and overpowered the blend of black and green teas, while the turmeric added to a bitter aftertaste that sat uneasily in my throat. I wanted to like this tea for all the health benefits the ingredients contain, but it was just not for me.
