Tea review: Boh Seri Songket Black Tea Lime and Ginger

Ginger teas are a favorite of mine. I have some digestive troubles and ginger has always been soothing for those issues. When Boh reached out to me asking if I’d like to try some teas, one that I was really intrigued by was their Seri Songket Black Tea Lime and Ginger. They also sent me Lemon Mandarin black tea, which I will review in a later post.

A little background on BOH:

The Malaysian tea company has been around for 80 years. At over 1200 hectares of land, BOH tea plantation is the largest in Malaysia, with four separate tea gardens, in Habu (the original), Fairlie Tea Garden, Sungai Palas Tea Garden and Bukit Cheeding in Selangor, according to Wikipedia. There is a packaging factory near the main garden.

When I got the tea in the mail and opened the package, the first thing I noticed was how shiny and metallic the packaging is. I love the design of the box — it’s really unique. The Seri Songket boxes are all like this, as part of their exotic collection.

Aromatically, the lime really stands out. But upon drinking, the spicy ginger’s presence blends really well with the citrusy essence and black tea — which sort of reminds me of an everyday Lipton, but more earthy

I like this tea a lot, it’s flavorful, but not overpowering whatsoever. And though I’ve never had lime tea before, I’m starting to enjoy it! And at $3.30 per 20 bag box, it’s a great deal.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve had Boh Tea, or something similar to this blend.
