This lovely blend brews up looking juicy red. It’s very fruity, with strong citrus overtones. But, of course, my favorite part is the ginger! It has a lovely undertone and leaves that gentle ginger spice bite on your tongue!
This is what Rishi Tea says about Tangerine Ginger Tea:

Tangerine Ginger is a full-bodied and invigorating blend with a wonderful gourmet flavor and aroma.
Ingredients: Organic ginger, Organic Fair Trade Certified™ hibiscus, Organic schizandra berries, Organic licorice root, Organic rosehips, Organic orange peel, natural essential oils of orange and tangerine. / Origin: Rishi Blend.
I researched the Schizandra berry and it is commonly used in Chinese medicine to balance the body. It apparently adapts to what your body needs – so if it’s sleepy, it will give you a bit of a boost and clear your mind. If you’re awake late at night and can’t sleep it will calm you body down so it can sleep.
I don’t really know about these claims, but the blend that Rishi has put together is very calming and relaxing, just by it’s flavor. I added a touch of honey to balance the sour (I’m overly sensitive to sour) and really enjoyed this tea.
