Ginger tea blends: flavor highlights

Some teas specialize in soothing and refreshing you all at once, and ginger tea pretty much heads that list. This is one of those brews that work on just about any tea base – black, green, white or rooibos. The presence of ginger root adds a spicy, warming edge to any variety of tea, gearing you up for a long day’s work, keeping you company while you ponder over the meaning of life, or giving you some much-needed energy when you’re under the weather. Plus, regularly consuming natural ginger root tea also gets you the nutrients, antioxidants and resultant health benefits of ginger.

A little history

Ginger has always enjoyed the status of a medicinal herb, particularly in Asia and the Middle East. It was primarily prescribed to prevent and relieve symptoms of colds and fevers, cure digestive troubles, and improve blood circulation. In India, strong, spicy Masala Chai prepared in almost every household typically include generous quantities of ginger.

How does ginger tea help with cold and flu?

There are many reasons why you should drink ginger tea for colds. Ginger contains anti-inflammatory compounds called gingergols and shogaols. These are known to target rhinoviruses that cause your sniffles and coughs in the first place. The natural warmth of ginger also provides instant relief from sore throats and malaise. To further enhance the healing properties of ginger, make yourself a batch of lemon ginger tea. This will give you a potent dose of vitamin C and antioxidants that will help you recover from your flu quicker. Ginger turmeric tea is also an excellent flu-fighting tea, helping you get rid of the immediate symptoms while also boosting your immunity in the long run.

Tasting notes and reviews

Pure ginger teas are “strong and flavorful”, with the “distinctive zing of ginger”. They are “palate cleansing”, “smoky and earthy”, with a “smooth, velvety texture” that tastes “lovely with lemon and honey”. Chai blends featuring ginger and spices such as cardamom and cinnamon taste “festive and cozy”, and can “fill the entire room with the most wonderful cloud of fragrance”. Depending on your affinity for the aroma and taste of ginger, you could find a batch of ginger tea “nice and spicy” or “a little too overpowering”. This can generally be adjusted by varying the quantity of tea you steep at a time. Those who prefer milder aromas and subtle tastes, can try the numerous fruit-and-ginger herbal tea blends on the market today, which tend to be “light, refreshing and thirst quenching”.

Tea tips

There aren’t too many rules governing how you should drink your ginger tea. Generally, ginger teas pair well with lemon and honey, and those with black tea bases can be consumed with a splash of milk. You could add a little cinnamon to your tea, or go the all-spice route with an invigorating cup of ginger flavored chai blend.
