This was an impulse buy at TJ Maxx, I always need more herbal teas.

I actually made this for MilitiaJim and stole sips.

I can not taste the rooibos at all, and the ginger is a mere hint.

MilitiaJim noticed it was not a real lemon, it was more lemon grass than lemon.

Post-Steep Additives: pinch German rock sugar
A bit more lemonade like

Well, we're not tossing it but we're certainly never buying it again. If anyone wants some let me know and I'll send it your way.

Rating: 1/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
