Trice's Lemon and Ginger green tea blend

So my first post-quarantine visit to a retail establishment that wasn't a grocery store was Great Clips. The second? A stop by T. J. Maxx, where I continued to wear my mask and was correct in believing that the rainy morning would make for a quiet store, and it did. I bought a cute new pink bread pan (for all those loaves of sourdough bread), a journal (there's so much to write about), and … some tea!

This Lemon and Ginger blend from Trice was billed as being good both hot and iced, and that appealed to me.

I'd bought some of this brand of tea before, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember how to open the box! Finally, I realized there was a band around the box that slid off, then the inner box opened with a hinged lid. So if you buy some of this yourself, don't be like me and spend 15 minutes figuring out how to get in it!

This is one of those rare teas that I like both hot and cold! On a rainy day, I had a cup of the hot tea and enjoyed the soothing warmth from the ginger. On a hot day, I plopped one of the silken tea bags in a glass of ice water and found the lemon and ginger flavor refreshing and cooling. They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade? I now think that when life gives you lemons, make some tea!


  1. Thanks for the advice on opening that box of tea! I have certainly had trouble figuring out how to open other "clever" boxes before. I'm not a big fan of green tea--it tastes rather insipid to me--but I DO like lemon and ginger, so maybe those will improve the green tea for me. I still haven't been out to a retail store other than the grocery and the hardware store, but when I do go to TJ Maxx again, I will look for this tea.

  2. Sounds like a lovely tea. Twingings Europe sells a few teas in a similar box. I like it but took a bit to figure out how to open.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
