Went to the mall with my mom, and we had our usual order of sushi. Mom wanted to try tea with it, so we went to the Davids and ordered this tea to go (mom’s pick). This was the first time I had this tea. I already have a ginger I love at home but I thought this one was worth a try.
It definitely is SUPER ginger. It was very strong ginger, almost to the point where it burns your tongue, but not quite. It was very good and complemented the sushi very well. We had it plain, but I think it would have also been good with some sweetener in it. It doesn’t leave an aftertaste which is a bonus. Even though it is a strong flavoured tea, it almost helps to clear your palate after the sushi.
It got my nose to start running, so I can definitely see how it would be a good tea to have when sick or with a cold.
I did enjoy this tea but will probably not buy any for home. I think it is worth to have with the sushi lunch.
Edit note: I brought the tea bag home as Davids put lots of tea in the bag. It made an excellent re-steep. The only issue was I somehow got some soya sauce (from the sushi) on the bag, so it was a little bit salty. But it worked pretty good with the ginger tea. I might have stumbled on something here :P
