drank Three Ginger by Pukka
323 tasting notes

I think I got a red pepper flake stuck in my soft palate last night and I awoke many times through the night to discover my sinuses impacting and my throat becoming increasingly sore. I’m drinking this tea hoping it will ease my sore throat.

For a bagged product the ginger flavor is quite significant. I’m impressed. It does seem to have been sweetened in some way, though, which is a shame. It doesn’t need it.

It does seem to be easing the worst of the rawness in my throat, too.

I usually just boil ginger root.

I don’t know if I’d want something spicy to dislodge a spice from my throat. hehe But I’m glad it’s making you feel better. Getting sick is the worst.

Well, the pepper flake was long gone by morning, but the damage was done. This particular ginger tea isn’t spicy at all. The addition of the licorice root makes it very round and sweet.

But then, I have a very weird relationship with spice.
