drank Japanese Ginger Tea by Lupicia
267 tasting notes

This is unlike any kind of ginger tea I’ve ever tried before, and is part of why Lupicia is fast becoming one of my obsessions (although they’re a Japanese company, they have an English language website and many very distinctly Japanese blends among the options- including many options that are rare in the US).
Anyway, the roasted hojicha works so well with the ginger that I can’t help but continue to drink this obsessively. It’s rather calming, and despite ginger being somewhat of an odd choice for summer (too warming!) I’m finding that I’m glad I bought this one nonetheless.
I can’t find it on the American website though- on the Japanese website it’s listed in English as “Japanese ginger tea”, but what the Japanese actually says is Washouga Houjicha, or simply “Japanese-style Ginger Houjicha”. So I dunno :) But I definitely recommend it, and the link to the Japanese page is here: http://www.lupicia.com/html/ja/item/001/016/item15599.html
