Ratings & Reviews for Organic Turmeric Ginger Mate
Let me start by saying I wanted to like this tea. I have had other ginger turmeric teas and loved them. I was looking for a tea club I could set up a membership and forget about it. I was hoping this was it.
What went wrong? Well I received my teas. Both ginger and turmeric and a joint aid tea. Upon opening the sealed bag I noticed I wasn’t hit with any aroma. I sniffed the bag and nothing which was odd, but I continued on. I had purchased their paper tea bags also, which I love, I measured out the suggested amount plus a little more just because I like stronger tea. I put about 8oz of hot water let it steep then sat down to enjoy. Sadly it tasted like hot water. Undeterred I thought maybe I made it wrong. Maybe a little too much water or maybe it wasn’t hot enough so I dumped the cup and tried again. This time I measured out a little more tea measured out the water at about 210 degrees. Again I sat down sipped my tea and again disappointed. Frustrated I decided to try again. This time I filled the bag to the top, stuffed it. Used only 6 oz of heated water and steeped it for 10 min. Although the water was murky it still tasted like heated water. I did this with the other tea I received and got the same results. Unfortunately they will both sit in my cupboard now until I can convince myself to throw out $25 worth of unflavored tea. Like I said I really wanted this to work, but in the end it didn’t. I will have to continue searching. I will probably purchase more tea bag from them though unless I find a club that I like that also has the bags.
Thank you for your feedback! I wanted to reach out and see if I could assist with anything. A lot of tea companies add flavoring to their teas to pack more of a punch of flavor while all of our teas are made with only the natural herb itself. This may be a different experience than other companies you have ordered from. I also noticed you had set up a recurring subscription for the Organic Turmeric Ginger Mate and would be happy to go in and cancel that for you if you are not wanting to receive any more.

This turmeric ginger mate tea is excellent! So far, I have not been disappointed in any of the teas from Full Leaf Tea Co., they have all been great! I would say that this loose leaf tea is pretty fine so if you have a steeper with larger holes in it the tea might get into your drink.
I really love this blend. I got the sample size because I am super picky but this was amazing yerba mate can be bitter but the turmeric and ginger root work perfectly. I personally have been steeping for 10 minutes and adding cane sugar.
Well blended tea providing a great AM boost and anti inflammatory support
