I have to admit that when I received my box sampler, this tea was the last one I tried. When I was steeping it, it did have a very strong smell, so I was skeptical. I think it is the ginger smell. When I tried it for the first time, it was amazing! You have to like ginger or you will not like this tea. It has a very robust ginger smell and taste. But, the reason I am on the tea forte site is to buy a canister of this, because it is that good! I wanted to read other reviews. I have tried SO many teas over the past 8-10 years, and this one is in my top 3. Love it so much!
This herbal loose tea has an interesting flavor. If you like kiwi and lime you will like this tea!
What can I say about this product that will help get across how delightful it is. I guess, when I'm looking for the special moment, where I want to just sit and reflect and enjoy something nice and simple in life, this is my go to item. The flavors are magical together.
This is one of my favorite herbal teas. It is refreshing and zingy.
I got this in the herbal retreat sampler. It sounded interesting but was so unpleasant! It legitimately smelled like Windex or some sort of cleaning product, and I couldn't get that out of my head while I was drinking it. Adding honey made it more bearable but I still wouldn't drink this voluntarily. It seems like this tea is one that you either love or hate.
Always trying new things from Tea Forte and this will be a super selection and will not disappoint. I opened and whiffed it, smells delicious.
This tea has a fantastic flavor profile. I love the lime the citrus gingery floral bouquet!
I have loved this tea for many years. It has a cool and spicy taste, very refreshing. I specially like to brew it and then pour it over ice. You do need a bit of sweetener to compliment the spicy ginger flavor.
I am determined to like this tea! Last night I added a teaspoon of Stevia and it seamed to level out all the different tastes and it was almost perfect. It was quite enjoyable with the added Stevia.
I don’t usually write reviews or use exclamation marks, but after reading the reviews for this tea, I had to do both. I average four-five hours of sleep a night due to the fact I am grading papers for most of the night. Until the November of 2014, I lived on caffeine. My husband’s aunt bought me a tea sampler for my birthday. A few years ago, she bought me African Solstice, which I liked, and so I started with those bags in the sampler. However, when I got to the Kiwi Lime Ginger Tea, I gave the African Solstice to my sister and ordered five more cans of the Kiwi Lime Ginger. I can’t get enough of it. My oldest son hates the smell of the tea, so I understand some of the reviews, but it truly is a matter of taste. The tea, if you let if steep for ten minutes or more, will have a strong ginger-lime flavor, and that is what I love. As I live in Michigan, a strong tea which heats my throat is a God-send in the winter. However, the truth is, I drink it year-round. I have almost completely decaffeinated myself, foregoing coffee and soda for the Kiwi Ginger Lime Tea throughout the school day. My students purchased the tea for me for Christmas because they noticed how much I love it. I wouldn’t purchase a can of the tea, unless you want to forward it to me if you dislike it, to begin with, but try a sample of it. I suspect you will either love it or hate it. As for me, I can’t do without it. I am about to order five more cans. My only regret is that it is never on sale.
I had this tea at my gardening buddies house next door this winter. Loved the flavor a lot. I can't describe it but the aroma was a delight to my senses. I do add fresh cream to my teas. This makes it creamy and lovely on the palette. I think it depends if you like herbal teas. Not all people do. I am ordering again and will enjoy to the fullest and not be awake all night. Thank-you for making this one.
I have a local coffee shop that has a great lime ginger tea, when I saw that Tea Forte had a Kiwi Lime Ginger I thought I'd try it. I was very disappointed.. It tasted like medicine! I wouldn't recommend this tea.. I have been I faithful "Earl Gray" person and will continue to be... But not for this tea
I have been happily enjoying the herbal sampler box that I received as a gift, however, when I got to this tea I was very disappointed. I know how expensive this tea is and I did not want to waste it, but I could not force myself to drink this tea. I felt like I opened a jar of Vicks Vapor Rub and started drinking from it. Perhaps this would be a good tea to have if you have a cold.
I was given a tin of this tea post chemo. I couldn't think about eating or drinking anything but I forced myself to sip the tea. I think the fact that it was mild made it possible and even pleasant. The ginger was soothing and I began to enjoy the tea as I was able to try other things and eventually to eat again. I'm still drinking this blend a couple of times a day just for the pleasure of it.

I bought his as part of a sample pack of loose leaf teas. I love ginger teas. I brewed this and could not even drink it because of the smell!!! I asked my boyfriend to tell me what he thought it smelled like-- his response... "Port-a-potty". No way do I recommend this tea!
Had to steep this one for quite awhile to get any meaningful flavor. Agree with one of the other reviewers that the ginger is the strongest component, but is fresh and clean tasting. Would not turn this tea away in the future!
It's not what I expected but its fresh, and light minty green tasting. It's not very strong ginger flavor, if you like ginger I recommend the Lemongrass Ginger or Ginger Pear.
Lime and ginger are two of my favorite flavors so this is a perfect match for me. Ginger is a powerful flavor but the lime holds up and complements it well. The kiwi is much more subtle and it just gives a little depth to the lime. If the ginger is too strong for you please try one of the other ginger options available from Tea forte. This one is perfect like it is!
The description reads "fresh picked citrus complemented by the... taste of ginger" but the ginger definitely overpowers the kiwi lime citrus! This blend needs to be re-worked to reduce the amount of ginger used.
what was tea forte thinking with this flavor? i bought the herbal retreat sampler and brought it to my family's get together without sampling it first at home and it was embarrasing! one of my sisters described the aroma as "pine sol." bottom line is, we did not drink the tea. the rest of the herbal sampler is a disappointment. i should get my money back!
