ORGANIC GINGER CUT

According to an 1869 book on Chinese philosopher Confucius, the noted sage was big on two things: silence and ginger. According to the book, whenever Confucius came around for dinner, he insisted ‘there must always be ginger at the table’, and that ‘when eating, he did not converse.’ When it came to dinner, he went straight to business.
It fits that Confucius should equate ginger with purposeful, silent eating. Thanks to ginger’s strong character, every nibble forces the person eating it to focus on nothing else – such is the strength of its bite. That said, the reason Confucius enjoyed ginger wasn’t simply for flavor. Rather, he appreciated the root’s ability to ‘remove excess wind and dampness in the stomach’. (Which is to say, he believed it aided in digestion.)
While we generally believe everything Confucius says without reservation, we’re pleased to say that modern science appears to back up what the philosopher believed. Today, most people believe that ginger can help ease upset stomachs, nausea, colds, and a host of other ailments. The root is said to also have anti-inflammatory properties that some claim can ease stiff, sore joints.
This luxury grade dried ginger is the perfect way to inject a little spice into your custom tea and herbal blends. Ok, enough talking!

SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS:

MILK SUGAR LEMON MINT
NO NO NO NO
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving into the pot. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)
