MUCH better with a spoonful of honey! Two teabags in my giant penguin mug, which I THINK is a 16oz mug. Steeped for about eight minutes. Still spicy, but much less so. A nice cup after eating way too many snacks on New Year’s Eve. ;)
As far as holiday bagged teas featuring ginger, I prefer Gingersnappish by Bigelow. Next year, I’ll stick to that.
