I know this is not really tea per se, but it is already in the data base so I thought I would give my review.
I have become addicted to bento. For most of my life I have been addicted to Asian cuisine, very specifically Japanese. And every once in a while I fancy myself an amazing chef and try my hand at making some delicious food. Just a note, Japanese chefs are amazingly skilled, that stuff is hard to pull off and make taste good. But even harder to pull it off and make it look good too. Throughout my bento quest I have been doing a lot of experimenting. So long story, I decided this weekend I was going to go all out and make sushi. I haven’t made sushi in such a long time. I ended up doing maki-sushi, a whole bunch of different onigiri, tamygoyaki, and some lettuce rolls. I wasn’t even hungry by the time I had everything prepared.
So anyway the point of this story is that I had to go shopping for ingredients, and I couldn’t find everything I wanted and I was scouring the shelves and came across this. And of course, I had to buy it.
I was not expecting too much, but if you were sitting in the room with me, this was my review: coughs out loud and then “WOW!”.
Holy spice, Ginger Drink! I actually used more water then recommended too. This comes packaged in individual servings. The granules are actually a fare size, they reminded me of yeasty coloured pellet fish food (gross, I know). The smell was kind of ginger but you could also strongly smell honey. After the tea is dissolved it smells strongly ginger, but it is almost not like real ginger. Is there such a thing as fake ginger? The taste of this is definitely kick you in the face ginger. There is quite a bit of spice too it. There is a very strong honey sweetness. There is more honey then I would have liked but this will work.
Someone in one of the threads was asking about teas for your nose? Well this one would definitely get your nose running and your sinuses clear.
