All About Ginger Black Tea
Two of our most popular teas blended into one. This flavored black tea brings together our premium english breakfast style tea from Sri Lanka and our dried ginger pieces from Thailand into one delicious tea you won't want to put down.
Ginger infused drinks have been popular for centuries, and now you can enjoy a pre-mixed ginger black tea any time you want something a little spicy, you have an upset stomach, you're feeling under the weather, or you just want to enjoy the tasty flavor and numerous health benefits.
Stress and Anxiety: Compounds in black tea may help us recover from the daily stresses in life.
Weight Loss: Mice fed a black tea supplement while on a high sugar diet had less weight gain and a greater metabolism than mice who didn't receive the black tea supplement.
Cancer Prevention: Antioxidants, like the polyphenols, catechins, and theaflavins in black tea, may reduce the development and spread of cancer.
Diarrhea: Diarrhea symptoms can be reduced by the high amounts of tannins in black tea.
Diabetes: Lab rat experiments show that black tea is beneficial in both lowering blood sugar levels and reducing diabetic cataracts.
Headaches: If you're suffering from a tension headache, the antioxidants in black tea can help relieve it faster than standard painkillers.
Oral Health: According to the American Society for Microbiology: “compounds in black tea may attack the harmful bacteria in your mouth that cause gum disease and cavities.”
Origin: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka.
Caffeine Level: High, more than half what you get in a cup of coffee.

Mix With: Milk, sugar.
I really like ginger flavors in my tea, so I was pleasantly surprised by the spiciness of this blend! The ginger isn't overpowering, it just adds a nice bit of extra flavor to the black tea and mellows out the bitterness. I'll definitely be getting more.
