From Upton Tea Imports

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a widely used and very popular herb. After cupping many samples, we felt that this selection, with its tangy mouth feel, spicy flavor and distinctive aroma, was superior to all the others.

This tisane was wonderfully comforting last night. I think my cold is actually a flu … sigh. In any event, I felt great relief after having a cup of this with some honey. Warm, and my breathing improved. Good flavor and not “bitey” – I love that it’s organic, too.

My attempt to get off of omeprazole failed…for the time being. I have been on it for twelve years. When I started it, I had h. Pylori and was really suffering and I think a lot of it was caused by the stress of some of our closest friends divorcing. It was a really ugly divorce.

It took two attempts to get from 40mg to 20mg but I did it, years ago. Now I am having rebound reflux when I try to go off of it – at least, that is what I feel is happening. Since I was burning up, I went back on it but I bought some empty gel caps so I can make some reduced doses to get my body tapered off instead of trying to quit cold turkey. I was told you can not just cut the tabs in half because of a time release coating, but I think you can still buy the kind with the little pellets in a capsule and split those up.

Meanwhile, I have run out of omeprazole and am only a few hours late taking it, yet I have reflux and burning in my stomach.

Unbelievable I know, my family never really used ginger for ANYTHING when I was growing up. We didn’t even eat gingersnaps. I didn’t know until a few years ago how hot it is! I have occasionally grated a bit into black tea just for the flavor and I put 1/4 tsp. into any soup or chili that is spicy. So this is my first ginger tea, sent by the amazing JacquelineM!

On top of having a bit of reflux this morning and no time to go get more meds right now, I have been feeling a little nauseated lately. I suspect that is from something I ate or from dealing with hundreds of people face to face at early voting on the days I work.

So….the tea. I would not choose this based on taste, but it is definitely drinkable if you need the benefits. It is hot and spicy in the mouth, but doesn’t make my lips burn and I do believe it may be helping my tummy. As hot as the roof of my mouth is getting, my tummy is not burning. And this time I am drinking it plain. I suspect it may be better with honey.

Thank you, Jacqueline! This may have saved me today to make it through my short work day!

JacquelineM

I hope, hope, hope it helps!

I can’t say I’m surprised. I’ve heard before that ginger should be good for that particular area. Perhaps you can get ginger in some sort of other dietary supplement form to help you wean yourself off the medicine?

fleurdelily

I have heard that ginger is good for motion sickness as well, but I can’t say that I’ve tried it for that. Hope you feel better soon

gmathis

…in chili! Never thought about that but it certainly makes sense.

ashmanra

I think it did help! A lot! As I said, I had been slightly nauseated for a couple of days…not sure why but I am blaming a frozen dinner I ate after work! Once I drank the tea, the tummy ache and heartburn were gone, I went to work at early voting, and picked up a pizza on the way home! Tummy still happy! Thank you, thank you, Jacqueline!

ashmanra

GMathis: According to my mother’s recipe, the ginger is in there to prevent…um….well….the fluffies is what my mother called it! LOL!

gmathis

Such elegant terminology!

sipdown! (though that’s nearly the last of them for tonight). This tea? It pretty much makes me want to make some ginger chicken or something. This is not something i want to drink, i want to eat it! so um yeah. it’s not bad..but i feel like it’s something i should be cooking with instead heh

Terri HarpLady

I like to drink ginger tea when I’m sick with any kind of respiratory problem. I also like to drink ginger tea when my guts are unhappy. I also just like to drink it, because I love ginger, heh. ;)

This is a very satisfying ginger root. One of the better tasting ones I have tried or maybe it’s just because the older I get the more I appreciate ginger root, not sure. This helps the throat and my shifting wisdom teeth. Mission accomplished.

Good gosh! My arby’s italian sub and curly fries must have been REALLY salty. I had their blackberry fruiTEA w/ it and a couple cups of tea and a bunch of water after and I’m still dying of thirst.

Didn’t have any iced tea made and I didn’t want to end up w/ a huge amount of wet leaves so I made ginger lemon water using the ginger I used in my matcha and English Breakfast this morning. I call it ginger water and not ginger tisane because ginger tisane has almost no liquor on it’s own lol.:)

1.5oz ginger steeped in 2oz boiling water for 20 min. Placed 2 thin slices of lemon in the bottom of my glass, decanted my tea, and added 14oz refrigerated water. Don’t have fresh lemon? Add 2TB lemon juice. Lemon verbena or lemon grass would definitely work as well.

My new favorite complement to Thai food is ginger tea. This tangy root certainly fits the bill. I picked this up during *MissB*’s stash sale a while back. It stands up to spicy food without overwhelming or contradicting it. A touch of honey mellows it out nicely. It also resteeps very well. The second steep is still flavorful but smoother and sweeter than the first.

I also enjoyed this blended with dried lemongrass, orange peel, and mint. Ginger + citrus = yay, and the mint accentuates the crisp, fresh aftertaste of the ginger. The lemongrass came from my friend’s backyard, which I think is just super cool. I have no green thumb whatsoever. I tried to grow cat grass a few years ago and it molded, which I didn’t even realize was a thing that can happen. Add my lack of natural talent to the fact that I live in an apartment with no outdoor space, and suddenly other people’s gardening ability just seems miraculous. Also tasty and rewarding. Yay for friends who are happy to share!

I don’t think I’ve ever had an experience growing cat grass in a pot where it didn’t end up going mouldy if I watered it enough to keep it alive. I’ve never had a mould issue with any other potted plants either.

Kaylee

It’s not just me?! That is so reassuring! Thanks Anlina.

EXCELLENT. Good for colds, flus, or just cold days, good iced, good with honey and without. Real, spicy ginger flavor. I get two, sometimes three or four brewings out of a couple teaspoons of dried root.
