In at least one of my past reviews, I said something like, ‘I don’t drink alot of flavored teas". Well, I REALLY like Ginger, so I decided to review this Ginger tea that I purchased from Stash. I’ve purchased this from Stash Tea a few times, and the quality is consistent. The teabags come wrapped in plastic. As soon as I opened the plastic wrap I could smell the ginger. Then after opening the foil envelope. the smell was incredible!!

In the past, I’ve kept the water temp around 190 degrees using an eight oz cup, leaving the teabag steep till the tea cools. The cup aroma is strongly full of ginger with a deep yellow color. For me, the extra long steep time adds to the character of the cup. My mouth is awash with the strong, spicey tang of ginger! Yeah!! I think the safflower adds a little smoothing sweetness to the cup.

Yesterday I used my glass Bon Jour french press (Approx 20 oz), with three teabags, leaving them in the press. In this case the ginger was VERY strong, VERY spicey (some say hot, but I just say spicey), with a deep yellow color. I absolutely loved it; although, I would only make my ginger tea this strong occasionally.

Shortly after midnight today, I brewed the tea according to time & temp below with an 8 oz cup. The ginger aroma and flavor was still delicious—quite strong and full of flavor. I still think the safflower smooths out the cup, but perhaps more so at a slightly lower temp and steep time. If you’re new to Ginger tea, perhaps a lower steep time and temp would be right for you.

This would be really great iced. As a matter of fact, I first had Iced Ginger tea at a local Thai restaurant, and loved it! This started my quest for ginger tea.

I really didn’t notice the green tea base in the Yamamotoyama Ginger Tea, but I didn’t care in this case…..the ginger refuses to be ignored! IMHO, everyone should try this tea at least once. It is a really great tea!

Sounds really interesting. I am unsure how much I like ginger, but it does sound as though it’d be an adventure trying. I wonder how mint would taste in the Ice Tea… ;)

ScottTeaMan

:)) Ahhh yes…mint! I think mint would make almost any tea (or anything for that matter) better. You could lower steep time and temp on the ginger tea, and I’m pretty sure that would subdue some of the gingers’ spiciness. Also, if you ice the tea & add a little sweetener, it does tame Ginger a little (and the tea too…:))). That is how they serve it at The Thai House.

You know the candied ginger they serve with sushi? I eat that plain….yes, I love ginger. Did I mention I like wasabi too?! :)

One last thing, If my tea reviews, or comments are too lengthy, please let me know. Peace………

Anna Vu

I love mint as an accent. Definitely does jazz up different teas and flavors so well! Persian tea + mint is also a popular mix as well…

Your review/comment length is fine! It just shows how much you love your tea!

ScottTeaMan

Persian Tea….Hmmm….I did follow your link and am intrigued! Upton Tea has a new Turkish blend they claim mimics TurkishTea. Well again I’m intrigued, but of course they posted that new tea AFTER I placed my recent order. {Sigh}. I’ll post a new review soon. Take care…………

Ashley Bain

It took me a long time to like ginger, but now I love it. I make ginger tea from fresh ginger all the time. Best cure for an upset tummy! Swear by it.

Ashley Bain

Oh and ginger/mint iced tea is divine! I love putting fresh mint in fresh ginger tea. Very refreshing!

Ashley Bain

and YUM candied ginger & wasabi! (okays I’m done) haha.

ScottTeaMan I know, love it all. I’ve been searching for soybean tea a friend gave me about 5 yrs ago….I told Erin I’d msg here with some links and talk with my friend about it. I’ll send the msg to you too.
ScottTeaMan

I’ll try a touch of peppermint (dried, b/c it is just an arms reach away) next time I enjoy my Ginger Tea. I know fresh is always better. :)

Ashley Bain

dried peppermint is still great! but for ginger I really like to use fresh ginger root. oh now I’m remembering how I used to make fresh mint and tarragon tea, that was really good.

ScottTeaMan

Did you get the message I sent?

Ashley Bain

yes, I replied! Thank you very much! I’m definitely going to have to check that tea out.

ScottTeaMan

Yeah, I have to remember to look at the envelope in the upper right corner….time for some Z’s…Zzzzzzzz…….

2nd Steep of the Day
Wanted a Special Cup for My Special 56 year Day
So I Tried This Ginger Tea from the STASH Sampler Collection.
Super Great Choice, I Love Ginger ANYTHING….
This Dry Tea Smell Profoundly Ginger Much Like InstaGinger.
Then the Water Hit 195 and Hit the Bag, What a Ginger BLAST.
After Cooling to Consumption Temp.
This proved to be the PERFECT CHOICE for GINGER LOVERS
It is More Smooth and Less Harsh then the InstaGinger Drink.
Maybe its the Safflower that accents the Flavor.
Stash has a Winner Here, So I’ll have to…
Keep On Steepin

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
