Eve sent this to me in a swap and honestly I had no clue what to do with the pouch. I thought maybe I dumped the whole thing in the cup but then figured that was a little insane so I used about 1/4 of the package in 8 oz of boiling water. The crystals dissolved instantly and left behind a tea that is somehow both extremely sweet and quite spicy. In fact, I think maybe I used too much crystal because this is cloying as I drink but then has a nice ginger zing in the aftertaste. I am just very confused on how I feel right now but thank you Eve for this interesting experience.
I have been hoarding my sample of this from Kasumi no Chajin for a night when I really needed it, but I recently discovered that my local grocery store stocks it! I had not seen them before because they’re not with the tea: there’s a mysterious section next to the spices featuring loose herbs for blending (lemongrass! eucalyptus!) and more exotic teas. $3 for a box of these, so I can definitely afford to keep them stocked!
I love ginger and I often get nauseous, so this is the absolute perfect tea for me. Plus no steeping involved, so when you are really ill you don’t have to stand around waiting for your tea to be done. The instructions say one whole packet per a small mug but there’s a whole lot in here and it smells strong so I used half of one for one of my smaller mugs.
This is quite possibly the strongest ginger tea I’ve ever had! And I love ginger so coming from me that is a big complement. Warming, spicy, with a nice hint of honey that adds flavor but not overpowering sweetness. And not only is it tasty, the ginger acts as an instant nausea killer. I bet it would be great iced too!
Thank you so much for introducing me to this tea (tisane, I suppose!) Kasumi, I am definitely going to always have it on hand!

I decided to give this freeze-dried ginger-honey granulated powder another try since I have a couple of packets (of unknown provenance…) in my drawer. I find, again, that it’s too sweet for me, and also the ginger seems (logically enough) like dried ginger.
I added some True Lemon, which greatly improved the flavor, as it helped to reawaken the dormant life of the ginger. But for me, this is probably best as a cold remedy, when the honey could help with a sore throat. Of course, there’s always licorice root…
First let me say, my family has gone through about 4 huge bags of this tea! It comes in packets and you pour it in 12 oz mug or larger. It depends though, the smaller the container, the stronger the flavor. They are tiny yellow granules that melt into a yellow semi-frothy colored fluid. It is VERY strong ginger. It has that nice spicy bite to it and the hint of sweetness from the honey crystals. I definitely do not need to add any sugar. This is absolutely delicious, and helpful during those colds and sore throats!
