I have been hoarding my sample of this from Kasumi no Chajin for a night when I really needed it, but I recently discovered that my local grocery store stocks it! I had not seen them before because they’re not with the tea: there’s a mysterious section next to the spices featuring loose herbs for blending (lemongrass! eucalyptus!) and more exotic teas. $3 for a box of these, so I can definitely afford to keep them stocked!
I love ginger and I often get nauseous, so this is the absolute perfect tea for me. Plus no steeping involved, so when you are really ill you don’t have to stand around waiting for your tea to be done. The instructions say one whole packet per a small mug but there’s a whole lot in here and it smells strong so I used half of one for one of my smaller mugs.
This is quite possibly the strongest ginger tea I’ve ever had! And I love ginger so coming from me that is a big complement. Warming, spicy, with a nice hint of honey that adds flavor but not overpowering sweetness. And not only is it tasty, the ginger acts as an instant nausea killer. I bet it would be great iced too!
Thank you so much for introducing me to this tea (tisane, I suppose!) Kasumi, I am definitely going to always have it on hand!
This is my first tasting note!
I really enjoy this tea. It is light, refreshing and tastes so natural.
For me the water does not have to be boiling hot for this tea to steep well and steeping time just between 3-5 mins it makes a great on the go tea. This is my morning college classes kind of tea and when the weather is cold it gives this hot cup of tea just that little extra comforting feel.

My work friend loves this. I don’t think it has a whole lot of flavor…until you oversteep it, in which case it gets kind of bitter and unpalatable.
I added this tea to the Steepster database. My local Asian market has this Organic version and the Premium Version. The organic version was priced at one dollar more, and has the USDA Organic logo on the package. I bought this after reading the review of the Premium one here on Steepster.
5/15/2013 – Found out I’m not much of a fan of oolongs, so It’s sitting on my tea shelf for awhile longer.
10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 3.99. I know there are some Pu-erh lovers out there, and I’m gonna start with the bagged one before I start importing kilos like Scarface. I looked it up on Amazon and I think I did good. This local Asian supermarket by me has a whole isle devoted to tea so why not try them all out?
12/6/12 – This has been my daily Pu-erh drinker for now and I’m trying to get through the 100 tea bags. Sometimes I use two tea bags. As always, the taste reminds me of “dirt”.
Do you know those pregnant women who eat “pica” (nonfood items) like soap, detergent, and crayons? Well, as a man in midlife, we go through manopause, and crave Pu-Erh because is tastes like dirt/pica (weird non food item)
Sometimes tea tastes like dirt. It’s ok.
I heard there’s a Crayon/Clay flavored tea coming out for pregnant women!
Mmmmm… This is definitely one to remember if you have a sore throat, stomachache, cold, or on freezing nights. The honey, the ginger, a steaming cup – warms you up instantly! For those not accustomed to the taste of ginger, or don’t like strong ginger drinks, this is not for you. The ginger is incredibly distinct, and can be a little overpowering, but the sweetness of the honey and sugar take the bite off it, turning it into a drink that’s sweet, savory, and spicy.
i didnt drink these last 3 teas right back to back like they are posted on here, i actually woke up very late and started my day with the ripe rice scented puerh then i had the matcha and now im sipping on this as we are about to walk out the door :)
I really like this one! Usually I have to add a bit of sweetener to any cup of tea, but this one is just fine by itself. Very mild, perfect for anyone who says they “don’t like tea.” :)
Nice and Cold!
Been drinking cold oolong this morning, now im laying back down, not feeling well today.
Nice and cool, Yum! This really is my favorite iced tea. I have to bump it up and give 100 cuz its my daily iced.
I brought some of this to the dialysis clinic with me today, Im actualy thinking about just bringing my electric kettle and small steeper up here with us cuz i have to sit in here for like 4 or 5 hours.
This tea is so good iced if its made right :)
