The sourness of Lemon provides the perfect counterpoint to the piquant-sweet taste of Ginger. Licorice and Peppermint add sophisticated nuance to the formula. Enjoy a cup of Lemon Ginger tea when your tummy needs a little taming, when you need to reinvigorate, or when you simply want a delicious, healthy drink.*
