1.5 tsp for 250mL water, 82 degree water, 4-minute steep.
It helps. Any steaming hot beverage will, of course, but I did find the lemon and ginger very soothing. I could not taste the licoreice, which is fine. as I don’t care much for licorice. The tea itself started to get bitter at the 4-minute mark.
It’s hard to rate this one fairly, as I am too congested to taste properly, and as my throat’s got that fire-on-sandpaper thing going. But it did give me a little boost — I just feel a bit happier after drinking it — and who couldn’t use a little extra green tea and ginger in their diet?
Definitely worth a try when miserable, but I’d have gone for the dicontinued Electric Ginger (is that was it was called? a lemon and ginger tea from DavidsTea back in the winter) instead, if I could.
