I first tried this tea at a friend's house during late sping. I had been feeling a little under the weather, and he suggested we have a nice soothing cup with some local raw honey. I was skeptical of the ginger, as I generally don't care for the spicy root, but I was pleasantly surprised that I absolutely loved this. Both soothing and refreshing, it's almost the very definition of Spring. I bought a box for my own collection shortly after, and I still enjoy a cup at my friend's house whenever I visit. Absolutely wonderful.
