Tea time ideas
The modern world is busy. Between long working hours and the occasional late-night Netflix marathon, we all get a little run down from time to time. For centuries, ginger has been used as a traditional home remedy to help support the body’s defence, used to help everything from sore throats and chesty coughs, to upset stomachs and nausea. We think the spicy flavour of our Ginger herbal tea is exactly the kind of warming hug-in-a-mug you need when you’re feeling a little worn out. Goes great when paired up a fistful of reenergising dried fruit as well—a lovely one-two to get you back on your feet.
Looking for some inspired food pairings for our ginger tea? Well, if you’re a right ginger nut, why not pair up that fiery flavour with some ginger packed sweet treats? Ginger on ginger action! We think that a sticky, sweet slice of ginger loaf cake or a nutty, crunchy ginger biscuit goes fabulously with a cup of our ginger tea. If you’re more savoury than sweet, look to the fiery flavours of Asia, where ginger is commonly used ingredient. We like a veggie packed stir-fry of noodles, pak choi, sugar snap peas, carrots and water chestnuts to serve up alongside a warming cup of our ginger tea.
Getting the best from your brew
Pop your feet up, stick the TV on, check up on Facebook—ginger tea benefits from a good long soak to really let those fiery flavours ignite. We recommend an infusion time of around 4-5 minutes in some freshly boiled water. But if you like your tea really fiery, go ahead and steep to your heart’s content—the longer you leave it, the more impactful that spicy flavour becomes.
