Meltin' Hot Ginger Tea is an Easy Delicious & Healthy Soother
Ginger Honey Crystals make Healing Tea
MI discovered this easy way to add ginger to my menu as quick as boiling water and opening the sachet. Ginger is packed with nutritional benefits and this is the quickest way to make a delicious ginger tea.
It's refreshing to know that it's sweetened with honey instead of sugar because honey has health benefits too.
Usually I use fresh ginger, but I always keep Prince of Peace Ginger Honey Crystals on hand for those times when I'm moving too fast to scrape the skin off the fresh ginger and slice it into the teapot.
Those days sometimes keep me running. I'm glad that I can toss a packet of ginger honey crystal tea into my purse to add to a cup of coffee house tea.
It's good to know that both ginger and honey maintain their hold on nutrients very well in the crystal form, so I know I'm still getting the healthy boost found in the fresh ingredients.

The Sachets I Found At The Co-op
Feeling a little bum about being so busy one day, I was surprised to find this little packet of gold at my local organic food store, so I decided to try it. I found it to my liking and now I keep it on hand.
Crystalized Ginger Contains Most of Fresh Ginger's Vitality
Here's Where To Buy The Same Crystal Tea
With this package I can cut my ginger honey crystal tea cost in half over buying at the store. Instead of buying a small pack of a handful of bags, I can get 30 at a time.
To my delight, it was simple to fix and delightful to taste. On days when my time is pretty well booked up it's still easy to reap the benefits of ginger without the work of peeling and slicing and cleaning up the cutting board.
Is This a Drink For You Too?
I've been a tea drinker all my adult life, actually since childhood. One of my favorite kid-time activities was a weekly Tea & Canasta Sunday with an elderly family friend. She invited my siblings and me to stop by each Sunday morning after we kids attended Sunday School across the street from her apartment.
She was a very tall lady, who lived at the top of the longest flight of stairs I'd ever climbed. Every visit was sweetly anticipated and she never disappointed us. Sybil always had the teapot filled, along with a platter of cinnamon toast points. Our games and chatter lasted for a couple hours, and the practice only ended when she moved out of state.
Do you drink ginger honey tea?
It Even Looks Appetizing In The Teacup
One Sachet In A Two-Cup Pot
Depending on my mood, and whether or not I feel a scratchy throat threatening, I may make the honey ginger tea in one cup or dilute it with two cups of water in the teapot.
We Taste First With Our Eyes
Choosing a favorite cup or mug has its benefits too, since we begin the tasting process at first sight of the food we're going to eat or drink. Putting this drink into my mom's old Corning cup set always sets me up to enjoy my hot beverage.
Tea Tastes Good Cold Too
A cold glass of ginger honey tea adds a surprising taste to a light meal or snack. It's sharp, but not too sweet, and the color sings too. Sometimes I enjoy this tea over a tall stack of ice in a favorite tea glass.

Paraphrasing C.E.Murphy on Tea
Tea is a way of life in Ireland. It goes this way: "Like tea?" Not me, thanks, I'm fine. "Nothing?"
I don't need anything. "You certain?" Oh, yes, you say - I'm fine. "Suit yourself because I aim to drink some tea myself, so I could make enough for two," I could join you if you permit me to help. Offers and acceptance ensue to wrap up the event in grace.
Try this in the U.S. and you won't get any tea.
Which would you prefer, the polite interplay with a steamy drink or the barren talk?
The double wall works to keep the heat in the tea while showing it off in style.
These contemporary sweet mugs feel soothing to cradle in the hand. If you opt for the taller sleek style you'll find it offered on the landing page.
I like the mugs and cups with lids to keep the tea hot even while I'm on the phone.
Retro styles like this one remind me of tea parties at Mom's when I was young.
