I’m using this tea as my “health” tea for the April prompt list. I don’t really have any teas around specifically promoted for health (that marketing gimmick doesn’t do a lot for me) but I do have some specific herbs that I’ve found work well for me for certain ailments so I try to keep some teas around that will fit that purpose. This is one of them.
This is a strong ginger tea, which makes it verge on being a bit spicy for my spice-sensitive self, but the hibiscus and citrus oil help add a little depth. Usually I take it plain, but I’m at the dregs of the bag where a lot of ginger has settled, so tonight I’ve added a dollop of honey. Mmm.
If I’m coming down with a cold, I find the Vitamin C from the hibi plus the ginger on the throat a good combo. But more commonly I’m dealing with bad GI issues directly related to my chronic migraine, and I have a migraine tonight. My doctor says I really have to treat both the head and the GI at the same time to have any chance against the migraine, so strong ginger tea has become a go-to.
