Try it iced in a combination
I felt this tea was just so-so by itself when hot so I began to experiment because I wanted the benefits of turmeric and ginger. While trying various combinations, I discovered it makes a great iced tea when mixed with other teas. Trying to avoid too much caffeine, I mix 2 Organic Tumeric Ginger bags with one decaf green and one decaf black tea bag. The result is pleasantly refreshing when iced! My husband and I enjoy it every day.
Upon trying the Organic Tumeric Ginger green tea, the first experience I had was the delightful aroma that the tumeric, ginger, and cinnamon blend gives as it steams up from my cup. I was concerned that it would taste medicinal since turmeric and ginger can both be potent spices, but the cinnamon rounds them out nicely. This tea is a perfect harmony to delight the senses even as it provides all the health benefits and will be part of my daily regime. I feel fortunate to have found both a delicious and hearty tasting tea that is also very good for my health. Thanks Republic of Tea!
My favorite tea.. I add a drizzle of honey.
Never been a green tea tan Until Now!
I've never been a fan of green tea until now! I received this as a sample in my flier and put it away in my cabinet. I didn't plan on trying it because I've never really like the smell or taste of green tea but this tea changed my opinion! It smelled really good while brewing but I was still skeptical. I added my honey and took a sip; it was amazing. It was so good I ordered some. This tea has made me a fan of green tea.
I have purchased so many teas over the years, most of which I love and buy over and over again. I love ginger, and I sprinkle turmeric on food whenever I think it works, so I was really excited about this tea. I agree with the review that said that the only good thing to say about this was that it didn't taste as bad as it smelled. But OMG. I am sorry, but I thought it was awful. Tasted like medicine. So sad, was so looking forward to the combination. Still love so many of your other products, but this one was not for me and I felt I needed to share.
Quite Shockingly... Wow!
I received this as a sample from the Republic of Tea and have been extremely hesitant in trying it out, because I was assuming a very Southeast Asian/Middle Eastern like taste... specifically curry, hahahaha. However, it was... wow. You can definitely taste the green tea, but you also get hints of ginger and turmeric. It is not overwhelming at all, which was my greatest concern. Plus, it seems really great and the whole concept of it (taste, scent, and the idea) is very refreshing. The scent of the tea is very soothing like lavender. I am writing this review as a note to myself, that I really enjoyed this tea and I most definitely will buy it for myself and as a gift to others. I highly recommend it to new/old customers of Republic of Tea.
What a pleasant surprise
I received this as a sample in my brochure, and immediately knew I would buy some. It has a little kick of spice, but not too much. I really enjoyed it, and look forward to receiving this order!
Love this tea, it has a nice warm spicy note without being overwhelming. Love it at work.
Love this Tea
I love drinking this tea without any additions. Very mild, look forward to every cup.
Very nice tea
This is a lovely, gingery tea. Very pleasant taste and I'm looking forward to the homeopathic benefits.
This is such a warm wonderful flavor. I drink at least one of these a day. I've read that ginger and turmeric are good for you, but I continue to drink this because it tastes do good.
Delicious tea..wonderful fragance
I had never tasted tea from this company, and since my daughter gifted me this tea for use as an antiinflamatory; I found that it is delcious, just as it is..the aroma,taste, smoothness of this tea, was really suprising! So much so, that I am going to look into other products this company offers...defenitely a winner!
I wasn't sure I'd like this but I ordered it out of curiosity. After all, turmeric isn't exactly known for it's flavor. But from my first sip, I really really liked it. Has a nice 'bite'. This one is now officially added to the rotation!
Enjoy this delicious tea that brings healthful benefits
If you research the health benefits of adding Turmeric to your diet, you will be amazed. I've added the spice to my cooking, but wanted more. As I love green tea and favor organics, I thought I'd give this a try. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of a turmeric tea, but this is FABULOUS. I drink it daily and have already gotten a couple friends and my teenager hooked on it, too. Now, it's my ONLY tea.
One of the best green teas I've ever tasted! I drink it every day...
This tea in place of NSAID
This tea along with Biodynamic Organic Turmeric Cinnamon has a great flavor but more importantly is a wonderful, organic anti-inflammatory. Love love love it!!!
Nice alternative to plain green tea
Nice spicy flavor for a green tea. Healthy spice, according to reports.
This tea has an acquired taste, however after several cups I now thoroughly enjoy the flavor! I started drinking turmeric ginger green tea for its antioxidant and high anti-inflammatory ingredients. I injured my knees, elbows and hips with weight lifting. Stopped the weights and started drinking 4 cups of this tea daily and I no longer hurt.
To Your Health
An amazing tea! The mild earthy taste of the turmeric is initially unusual, but, mixed with the more alive ginger and cinnamon tastes, quickly gives the feeling of a refreshing whole body cleanse. I love it as a bedtime tea even though it's a green tea. With a nice bouquet of flavors,it has some of the best anti-inflammatory properties of any tea. The turmeric helps to tonify your body organs and the ginger has cooling properties that also sooth away inflammation giving this tea perhaps the most powerful healing properties of any tea you can drink. Drink it everyday!
Helps my joints
Love this tea! It seems to help my mild joint pain.
Health Benefits of Tumeric and Ginger
This tea has a nice smooth taste and many health benefits! I buy it in bulk and sip all day long.
Really smooth and fragrant tea. Not too strong. It has a lovely balance of flavor. Slightly sweet but I still add a little honey and cream. Delicious! With all the health benefits added it is the perfect tea.
Happy That I Like It!
I was a little wary to try this, just couldn't imagine turmeric being tasty...but this is earthy, pleasant, aromatic and light but with body. I really enjoyed my first cup and look forward to making a habit of this healthy, beneficial tea. I appreciated one reviewer's mention of cooking with the tea...I plan on saving my used tea bags and infusing rice water with them!
Powerful Antioxident! Great Flavor!!
Was given to me at first then ran out and decided to buy the 250 bag refill! I mix with a touch of local organic honey! Delicious!! I am an advocate of eating as organic as possible! I believe that daily consummation of turmeric will help prevent the development of cancer and help maintain a healthy body ph!
Love this tea!
Tumeric has so many health benefits, and is often hard to get into the diet. What better way than to enjoy it with a delicious ginger green tea!! I feel this tea gives my health a boost in such a delicious way!
Lovely tea & fragrance
It took me four tries before I eventually succumbed to the fragrance of this delightfully fragranced tea; a co-worker recommended it and I am forever grateful ; served with a slice of fresh lemon rounds renders the tea even more palatable. Thank you for stocking it!
Tea has a wonderful aroma and is sweet without any additives. Also as a cancer survivor anything which reduces inflammation is desirable but not everything tastes this good! I am very glad to have found this tea.
spicy but silky to the tongue
very pleasant and lively enhanced with more zest is energizing
This tea is a great tea. I've been drinking a couple a cup a day for a few months now and I think it is helping my arthritis in my joints. The tea is the only thing I've done different in my drinking and eating habits. So, I figure it must be this tea. Plus it sooooo yummy.
I am a cancer survivor so I was very excited to try this tea. Potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties PLUS a delicious flavor profile. Very soothing aroma. Love it!
Not sure if it is completely because of the ingredients, but my tendonitis has markedly improved since I started drinking this tea! Thank you, RoT!!
Love this tea!
My husband and I have been drinking the Limber tea daily. I decided to try the turmeric green tea. Boy was I glad I did. It has a lovely mellow taste. so now I drink the this tea, and my husband drinks the limber. We are both content.
Healthy and Tasty
I started drinking tumeric and ginger tea to help reduce chronic inflammation. I can't say how much the tea actually helps, but along with an improved diet and increase in exercise, I feel the best I've ever felt in my 26 years! It tastes good too :-)
My new favorite Tea
I love this tea. It is part of my morning routine everyday. Healthy way to start the day and a great afternoon treat also.
Smoothe, feels like life in cup. Nothing like ginger, Tumeric, and Bromelain to fill body and soul with the high of well being. Love ginger peach and red raspberry, but this one is the BEST!!! Bulk buy for me!
Great for calming your stomach & inflammation
Turmeric and ginger are a great health combination in this tea. It helps my stomach issues. It grows on you the more you drink it and you love knowing that it's so good for you.
Really helps with inflammation!
I never had a tea like this before so honestly the first day that I tried it, I had to take small sips throughout the day and put honey in it to be able to drink it. I preferred it cold at first vs. hot. But by the 2nd day I was able able to drink a full mug normally and by the third day I was drinking 2 cups of the tea per day and have gotten used to it. At home I boil some green tea and pour green tea onto the turmeric ginger tea and add Raw Honey and Cinnamon and it tastes wonderful and you taste the turmeric less but still get the benefits. I have really noticed a difference since drinking the tea and have been feeling much better from my back and have not needed to take any anti-inflammatories since drinking this tea! I noticed the one day I didnot drink it that I did have more aches and pains. My husband tried it and it has been helping him as well. Love it! and will definitely continue ordering it! I ordered 2 tins to have one at home and one at work!
Wasn't Sure I'd Like This
I received a sample of this in one of my previous orders. I looked at it for a long while, thinking the combo of tastes had to be odd. I finally tried it and now it's one of my very favorites! I would have never thought turmeric in tea would be a good idea but it's exceptional. I'm going to need refills soon!
The Perfect Soothing Mix
I don't buy much herb tea, having found many incompatible with my taste or inflammatory health issues. But this caught my eye because of the ginger/turmeric/cinnamon/green tea combo (I'm not even a green tea fan!). I use all regularly as known/proven antiflammatories. Though skeptical of their pleasing mix in a tea, I decided to give it a try, based on trust in ROT. What a surprise! From the "clean-but-earthy" aroma to the matching taste, to the overall soothing effects, I've been delighted! Don't drink it every day, but find it just right for raw/rainy and particularly stressful or painful days. I take it straight, find it comforting to hold it in my favorite round-bellied mug with both hands, inhaling happily as I bring it in for a sip. Almost as good as a comforting hug! THANK YOU for this health-supporting gift!
This tea is great. Smooth, not bitter, and has an excellent taste. For those who put sweetener in their tea, you can drink this without! I love it and have been buying it for over a year.
Ginger and turmeric are anti-inflammatory. I was blending my own until I found it pre packaged. I have used this tea 2 times a day for 3 weeks to reduce the pain and swelling in my neck shoulder and hand for authritis. I am now 5 months pain free by drinking 1 cup daily. Try it I am sure you will find the same results.
Awesome earthy taste
I love that they did not try to add rose hips or hibiscus to this tea. It has a clean earthy taste that I can't get enough of. This is like no other tea I have ever tasted.
SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE
Amazing flavors combine to make this one a genuine surprise. The fragrance of the tea is wonderful to enjoy as well. Clean and refreshing with fruity notes. I will be re-ordering this one! I ordered it because of the reported health benefits of turmeric and of ginger not expecting it to delight my taste buds...more of a "medicinal" tea I was predicting. I was pleasantly proven wrong. If you have not sampled this one I suggest you should.
The taste is better than I expected, but not enough to make me add it to my regular repeat buys. There just isn't enough cabinet space. Do make sure you wipe up spills right away since the turmeric stains. I now have a yellow ring on the counter that I didn't catch quickly enough.
Love this tea!
Just tried this tea-got the sample with my last order. I am very impressed and will order more!
Delicious & Soothing
I find this tea to be delicious, earthy and very soothing as my morning cup. I have had issues with stomach upset from certain tea, and the zingy ginger and spicy turmeric are the perfect combo for me. And with the outstanding health properties of ginger, turmeric and green tea, it's perfection in a cup!
Like so many of you who left comments about this tea, I, too, was VERY hesitant about this tea. I have IBS, so I actually take turmeric supplements, and based on how they smell, I certainly would not have tried this tea had I not received a sample. I was super curious when I initially received it, so I opened it to get a whiff. Same earthy smell as the tablets I take (like stinky feet)! Anyway, here it is a month or so later, and since I hadn't thrown the sample away, and since I had a really rough night last night with the IBS, I decided to finally give it a try. Seriously, this tea is AMAZING. I can taste both the ginger and the turmeric, and it is surprisingly smooth and delicious with the honey (I always add my own as well). No heartburn issues with me, either (as noted in a couple comments) -- it is mild, delicate, and soothing -- and this is coming from a person who actually ADDS ginger powder and white pepper to a cup of chai tea! At any rate, I'm here tonight to purchase this delightful tea.
Place Catchy Title Here
Just like many of the other reviewers, I received the bag with the magazine and was turned off by the scent at first. I also decided to try it anyway and was very surprised I liked it so much. There was a unique flavor there that I could only describe as 'earthy'. I plan on ordering some, and recommend trying it.
Smells funny but tastes delicious
I received a sample tea bag with a catalog I received in the mail. It smelled strange and I did not think I would like it, but decided to take a chance... So happy I did!!!! It's tea is excellent! I drink it without honey most of the time, but its delicious with a teaspoon of honey also. I highly recommend this flavor. Some reviews said it gave them heartburn, I have not experienced this problem at all. In fact, I found that the ginger actually settles my stomach.
several reviewers did not like the smell in the bag dry.... I found it intriguing. I love tumeric and ginger both but would not have considered tumeric in a tea. I like tea very weak so I poured almost-boiling water over the bag and left it for maybe 45 seconds. this created a delicious, delicate tea which I really enjoyed.
I wasn't impressed w/the flavor. Ginger teas are some of my fav's but I wasn't WOW-ed like so many others. Recvd a sample bag w/my catalog & glad I could try it as a sample instead of buying a tin. The blend is pleasant, just not my cuppa tea ;^)
First, I am VERY picky with tea, and there are very few flavors that I like. A score of three is a good score for me. With that in mind I got the bag free with the catalog. It smells like a hippie's house, which I did not like, but I gave it a shot anyway. It was absolutely delicious. The scent was misleading, and I really liked the tea.
What a surprise! I got a free teabag with the catalog. I opened it today and smelled the teabag. YUCK! ...or so I thought. I figured I'd give it a taste anyway, I could always throw it out but I was so pleasantly surprised to find that it's delicious! I have rosacea so I hope the anti-inflammatory properties will help that.
I needed more ginger in life so I decided to give this a whirl. It is sweet and tasty. I can taste the ginger and turmeric, and the touch of honey in the tea mellows the spice. I was concerned about heartburn (a problem for me) but I had none. My favorite.
Benefits of turmeric in a new way
I know no medical claims are made for turmeric teas but I am a believer in the value of turmeric and enjoy using turmeric tea either by itself. Also I often combine a bag of Turmeric tea with another tea or with Tart Cherry concentrate for the benefits of both.
Smooth but has after effect
After reading several good reviews, I decided to try this blend because of the great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of ginger and turmeric. Although the tea tasted smooth enough, I found that it gave me terrific heartburn an hour or two after drinking - so no more spiced turmeric ginger for me! I'll stick with some of my other Republic of Tea favorites.
great tasting & medicinal
not only is this tea soothing & taste great, the turmeric & ginger with the other added ingredients has helped my asthma. on a scale of 1-10 my asthma has come down to a 1-2 from 8-9 & it's fall in Chicago which is a bad time for me. I drink 3 cups a day & can even sleep thru the night, I add organic honey-do not add sugar! turmeric & ginger have anti-inflammatory properties & ginger soothes my stomach. I can go around flowers & fresh cut grass. I'v been in & out of the hospital & intubated twice. I'm sooo glad I did my research & found this tea. I wish I'd had it 30 years ago! THANKS REPUBLIC OF TEA ('-')
Of all the Turmeric brands, this one is not only the best tasting, it does indeed bring soothing and healing to the lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
very pleasent flavor
I drink a lot of tea and this is by far my favorite. The addition of turmeric is wonderful. Such a smooth cup of tea, I start each day with a cup or two. I have to buy this in bulk because my husband who usually goes for fruit teas, has discovered he loves this one too.
each cup tastes so fresh and consistant Thanks for such a good product.
Organic Tumeric Ginger - TASTY !!
I wasn't sure what to expect but wanted to try this tea because it has tumeric in it. It turned out to be pleasantly surprising - a gentle flavor with a little subtle spiciness to it. Very enjoyable. My only regret is the cost of shipping and I hope TROT is working hard to bring that cost down at least on their refill shipments. So 5 teapots for the tea and 3 teapots for the shipping charge.
Great! Great! Great!
Wow! I loved this from the very beginning. I recently purchased directly from their web because the place from where I usually get this has been out of Turmeric Ginger for quite a while. First time I tried it, I was amazed. I highly recommend this product, if you don't like it, you probably are too picky and just to hard to make happy, because it is truly tasty; add some milk, cream, or simply by itself; it's just wonderful. I really can't see anybody not liking this; just in case you don't like it, at least try it a couple of times so that you can really appreciate the hidden taste, close your eyes, and your taste buds will thank you.
nice flavor but more important than the taste, my husband finds it helps him with inflammation when his back acts up.
Great to cook with, too!
I was a bit hesitant to try this tea but since I love ginger and green tea I gave it a try. Makes a lovely golden cup of tea -- the turmeric and ginger are present without being overwhelming. However I find the real strength of this blend lies in cooking with it. I add one bag along with a few threads of saffron to the pot when I am cooking brown rice. The spices in the tea infuse into the rice and give it a fabulous aroma and taste as well as a lovely golden color thanks to the turmeric.
Enjoyable and Healthy drink
I find this an enjoyable way to take my medicine. I try to eat foods that cool inflammation in my body and from what I read this combination is quite helpful in this area. And -- it tastes good too.
I read online that Turmeric Tea is an Anti-Inflammatory and has helped MS patients. I don't have MS but have an inflammation on my spinal cord (Transverse Myelitis) which has caused me pain in my legs and feet for 3 years now. So, I ordered the tea and have been drinking it, 2 cups every day for about 3 weeks now and am actually feeling some relief! I am so excited that I am feeling better and have less pain and the reason has to be because of this tea. The taste is light and pleasurable also.
Warm and Cozy
I must admit the first bup was a bit off-putting, not at all what one would expect from a green tea, but the spicy, earthy warmth of the turmeric won me over. This is one of my favorite go to teas on a chilly morning. And drinking something so health promoting gives me a mental boost too.
my all time favorite!
this is my favorite of them all! it has all the health benefits & it's organic. i make sure i take this daily & it taste good, too.
I purchased this tea strictly out of curiousity and ended up falling in love with it! The flavor loosely resembles a chai flavor, but is lighter. I've added this tea to the #2 spot on my top 5 Republic of Tea teas.
Good and different
Earthy but light, pungent and aromatic. Ginger is not overwhelming, no "heat", very balanced with other flavours. I could imagine how some folks wouldn't love this tea, in particular people who rarely drink tea. But I like it and the health benefits.
healthy and delicious
I first ordered this tea as a way to get turmeric into my daily diet. Now I keep a supply in my home and office at all times because I enjoy it so much and I like knowing I'm doing something good for my health. I use a large mug and combine the turmeric tea with cinnamon orange red tea. The natural sweetness of this blend makes added sweetener unnecessary and complements the spices. I hope both of these teas will always be available because I'm hooked!
Tempting flavors in this tea, but the terrific comes when you drink it every day. It's produced a significant reduction in pain produced by inflammation and an equally significant increase in joint flexibility. This tea deserves a permanent place in the ROT market.
This is the only tea I make at home now.
I saw this on a shelf in an organic grocery store and thought it sounded so healthy. After a few months of drinking two cups a day, I noticed that all of my daily aches and pains had diminished significantly. I used to take advil and tylenol several times a week and now I rarely need any pain medications. I love the tea, the taste of it and the health benefits. I have told almost everyone I know about it. My yearly allergies, which would have started up by now, have not started up this year and I really think it's the tea. Thank you so much for making this very special tea.
Excellent Tasting and Anti-Inflammatory
I'd been trying to incorporate Turmeric into my diet for months and had been supremely unsuccessful until I tried this tea. I was pleasantly surprised at it's sweet and spicy taste. The powerful synergy of Turmeric and Green Tea (along with Ginger) make this tea the perfect way to get those critical herbs!
I like this tea very much. But I did have to get use to the ginger taste. It helped me get rid of a cold I had quickly. That was the only tea I drank when I had my cold. I didn't take any mediation either. Maybe it will work that way for some individuals and not for others I don't know. I look forward to drinking it now, whenever I have even a hint of a cold.
I tried this initially because of the health benefits of the ingredients. It has since become 1 of my favorites & I hope it continues to be available into the future.
I like a BIG mug of tea, so I make this with 2 teabags, add sweetener and sometimes soymilk. A good afternoon pick me up.
Beautiful blend of healing in a cup. Good for inflammation, good for digestion, just plain good for health.
I love this tea!!
I love this tea, my family loves this tea! When we had the beginnings of colds, we drank it 3x/day for a few days and the colds never happened! I highly recommend this tea! You can add a bit of your favorite honey to sweeten it and soothe a sore throat! Awesome tea! Thank you!
The only good thing I can say about this tea is that it doesn't taste as bad as it smells. Couldn't taste the ginger, cinnamon, honey or the green tea--just a kind of dirty taste when I was expecting a "curry" experience. The rest goes into the circular file.
I love this tea!
I tried this tea for the Turmeric benefits but I have noticed it has been a hugh help with weight loss, plus it tastes great! Bonus!
What an awesome tea!
I LOVE this tea! What an awesome way to get antioxidants! Turmeric and Ginger lend a nice, mellow, earthy taste to green tea....it's like meditation in a cup!
