drank Pure ginger by Custom
520 tasting notes

I’ve been feeling headachy all week. I figured it was all the pressure I was under at work. This morning I felt worse than ever. Pounding headache and nausea. Ugh. Thankfully, I had a nub of fresh ginger in my fridge. Husband offered to help but kitchen activities leave him nearly frantic with flailing helplessness. After watching him fumbling about for a bit, I stepped it and made the drink myself. (He’s a sweetie who does the taxes, computer stuff, and saves me from spiders, but food prep is a mystery to him. Cute. :))

Grated a bit of ginger into my infuser and steeped in boiling water for about 7 mins. Dollop of honey and you’re good to go. It’s a very tasty and energizing drink. I love the warmth and spicy burn of ginger tea. It always feels like liquid health. Delicious too. One large mugful made my nausea practically disappear. Halfway through my second round of this and I’m feeling up to making pickles! Daikon pickles! Can’t wait till tomorrow when I can eat them!

Bahahaha, your husband sounds much like my boyfriend. He’s capable of heating frozen lasagna and grating cheese, but very much gives me a O.o look when I request anything else. I made him make his own bruschetta the other night though (so he toasted the bread, rubbed garlic on it, and put the topping + cheese on it…. under my close supervision, haha). It was amazing.

Glad this seems to be working for you, btw!

I love ginger!

Ginger is fantastic for nausea – and I feel quite fortunate to have a boyfriend that cooks. ;)

Kittena, husband can also make tasty food with very specific direction. But it’s so time consuming and tiring to supervise very little step and answer the unending questions I pretty much prefer to be left alone in the kitchen. Poor well meaning fella. :)

Amy, ginger is my best buddy. Yay ginger!

Jillian, I am jealous! I do love cooking but sometimes I’m just too tired or busy. Would be nice to share that task.

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
