Spot of Tea: Eden Sencha Ginger


Mellow and warming, this tea is more ginger than green—but the sencha is there hiding and delicately grassy at the end of each sip. Made from organic Japanese green tea leaves and Tanzanian ginger, Eden's Sencha Ginger is rich and flavorful, but not bitter, after a 4 minute steep. If you catch a cool moment, brew up a steaming cup. A spiced muffin or candied-ginger and orange-peel studded scone would work well on the side.

On ice, the leafy greenness of this tea comes out; it might work best with a spoonful of honey.

Around $3.50 for 16 bags, available online.
