Ginger tea is wonderful and has all sorts of healthy properties. Matcha tea is in the news for all its benefits. Combined they create a fantastic tea that gives you a flavorful zing (the ginger is strong) and a real pick me up without any jittery feeling. That said, be sure you know what real ginger tea tastes like (not the typical grocery store variety) and how strong matcha can be. Ginger root tea isn’t for everyone and neither is matcha. Put together, some people will love this and others will very much not like it. It is an acquired taste even with the sugar already in it. The sealed canisters are a great feature and I love that this series is organic.
Tea Forte matcha single serves have been my preferred morning tea for years. This organic matcha is by far one of the best I've tried. Ginger matcha is my personal favorite and though the other blends are lovely and well-balanced, I always saved the ginger as a special treat. Kudos to Tea Forte for responding to customer requests to offer these wonderful matcha blends in 30g canisters. I've been sharing the single serve teas with friends over the years, and now I can gift them with canisters of their personal favorite flavors too.
I was a little skeptical about how the ginger + matcha combo would work, because they are very opposite flavors. In reality, that balance each other beautifully. The matcha is smooth, rich and earthy, balanced by a delightful, bright, zingy ginger flavor. Such a playful, awakening tea.
The Ginger Matcha will definitely give you the zing you need to get you going! I often boil a few slices of ginger and make a tea out of that, especially when I feel under the weather, and the Ginger Matcha was reminiscent of that with its intense ginger essence. It complemented the matcha tea nicely.
