53 tasting notes

This is a woody mixture of ginger root, ginseng and what appears to be unidentified berries, perhaps, and green tea. This is a very strongly flavored concoction- the spiciness of the ginger is powerful. At first I didn’t like it, but when I got sick with the latest virus going around I decided this would be the perfect time for a ginger tea cure. For two days I drank this tea from morning until night. I tried it both alone or mixed with another tea such as vanilla green tea, honeybush vanilla and spearmint. I find that while I like the more muted flavor in the tea mixes, I was able to acquire an appreciation of it full-strength. It’ll definitely wake you up. I can’t say it cured me, but the warm and soothing qualities definitely helped relieve my sinus headache, and knowing the medicinal properties of ginger may have allowed a small placebo effect. I just bought more!

Tealuxe recommends a steep time of 5-7 minutes but I steep it for 2-3 for the first couple of infusions.
