I was recently in New York City, and happened upon Dean and Delucas. Dean and Delucas is a nice gourmet food store, also know as a hoity toity food store. This hoity toity food store has sandwiches, store made breads, rare cheeses, candies and much more.
I always have my eye out for ginger – raw, candied or infused. Dean and Deluca has a nice section of teas, and more importantly ginger infused teas. One of the teas, Kusmi Tea Ginger Lemon Green Tea, caught my eye. I purchased it and brought it home.
I opened the box of tea, and found an interesting cotton based tea bag; the style of tea bag lends to a clean flavor. I brewed a cup (actually on my third cup) and found the Kusmi description to be very accurate “..ginger notes give this blend a delicately spicy flavour that blends beautifully with the tanginess of lemon.”
