Sandy brought this home from Australia for our tea tasting marathons as we try to cath up on what we have each tried while she was away!

I didn’t look at the ingredients before preparing, but when it was steeping I knew there was ginger in it! I had a bad experience with ginger once, before I knew that candied ginger is sweet for a minute and then it gets really REALLY hot. Well, this tisane redeems ginger if you have had anything like that happen to you. We are drinking it because it is late and we didn’t want to take in more caffeine, but I can tell that this would be a veritable life saver if you have a sore, scratchy throat. I am drinking it plain, but I bet it would be fabulous with honey.

Edited to add: The more I drink this the more the ginger is coming out to play!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
