We bought a warehouse pack of this in Thailand right before a boating expedition. I’m only sorry that I didn’t pack my suitcase full on the way back! It’s pure ginger, aromatic, easy to use and great for cooking or drinking. I’m so sad it’s so horribly expensive here in the USA. It gets top review, sorry I couldn’t continue the additional rating system below as this site is not suited to mobile use.

This is one of those messed up (yet always wonderful) purchases that I made in a Brussels-based Asian grocery store called Tinie’s (tiny’s). I wanted an instant ginger tea/drink but without all the extra crud, and found this. Only ingredient? Ginger. Yes! Tricky to discover though, I had to really scour the packaging (it’s all in Thai) and then the ONLY native part of the packaging in English, other htan “Ginger Extract 100%” and a blurb I’ll share on the tea page, was the URL gingen.com. Excellent!

Anyway, to the tea/drink. It’s spicy, it comes in those cute little individual packages, it’s solid, it’s dependable. Is it amazing? No… but it’s instant ginger granules, and I always want some of those on hand in cold weather.

I am definitely a fan of ginger. I love the taste (although I usually go for Ginger Lemon tea), and it usually really helps if I’m I’m feeling sick to my stomach. I don’t think I’ve seen instant ginger tea, though. Sounds kind of strange.

In my experience, instant ginger tea is only (usually) found in Asian grocery stores. It’s basically powdered ginger with some added something or other so that it doesn’t clump into a gooey mess. There’s a ginger lemon version of this (with extra sugar added) and a ginger matcha latte version (which I tried the other day, amazing)… usually really cheap and great to add to things where you want some extra ginger kick, even in your cooking.

Interesting. I use a lot of Ginger in cooking (I love Gingerbread and Stir Fry with Ginger), and drink a fair amount of Ginger tea (Jammin’ Lemon Ginger is my current fave), so I’ll have to keep an eye out for this.

I was buying ginger and lemongrass at the grocery store when the cashier told me someone had told to make a tea out of the two. She said it helped her get over her cold really quick. I did try it and it wasn’t bad but I only did an infusion like regular tea. I think it’s meant to be boiled and simmered for an hour on the stove. If you google it there’s many different ideas on how to prepare it.

I have a sweet ginger granule from my local Asian place – makes a wicked good hot drink for colds, especially with lemon juice.

I like the ginger-and-honey ones. :) Perfect for camping and hiking.
