About This Loose Leaf Tea
An excellent tea with a smooth rich malty character and a China tea "sweetness". Takes milk well and is ideal for breakfast. Although no one can say with certainty when these two flavourful items were first combined in a drink or dish it is safe to say that it probably happened a very very long time ago somewhere in the Arab world. Can we back that up? Well some of the earliest mentions of Ginger (Latin: Zingiber officinale) can be found in the Koran. This would indicate that the spicy root was known to Arabs in at least 650 AD roughly the time the holy book was written. As for lemons (Latin: Citrus Limonum) their first literary reference is found in a treatise on farming written in the early part of the 10th century by Qustus al-Rumi an Arab scholar. So it is safe to say that the two flavours were probably combined sometime roughly 1000 years ago. And why not combine them? The tart tanginess of lemon is as perfectly balanced by the heat and flavour of ginger as day is by night.
Ordered this as part of a larger order. Not tried it yet, but the tea was delivered less than 24 hours after ordering. Very impressed. Will certainly order from you again. 🙂
