I have the Double Ginger, from Amariel, which is just this plus dried ginger bits.
It’s really strong. Super spicy. I steeped it 5 minutes then pulled out the ginger chunks – she warned me it wouldn’t all dissolve, so I did use a basket.
I really like this, but don’t see that it’s much different from the ginger packets I get at the Asian market. I’m not sure that the dried ginger pieces really add a lot of extra flavour… not like grating fresh ginger into it does. (Yes, I’ve done that…)
So while I do like this and will no doubt finish it all rapidly, I don’t think I’d go out of my way to get it.
The caramel houjicha, however. I’m really looking forward to a cup of that one. Mmm, caramel tea. AND I have whipping cream. And maple syrup. :D :D
Thanks so much for sharing, Amariel!
