Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Ginger Black Tea is a blend made from Ceylon Tea and zesty, nutritious ginger. It provides a bold, full and brisk flavour, accompanied by distinctly spicy, herbaceous undertones. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled within the beautiful Kentish countryside. This is our way of guaranteeing both quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.
The island nation of Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) most famously produces Black Teas such as this one. Most, then, contain high levels of caffeine - around 40-mg per 8-oz cup. This makes Ginger Black Tea a great choice for an early morning boost. Regardless of when you choose to drink it, however, you’re undoubtedly in for a treat! Why not buy it today?
More About Ginger Black Tea
The base ingredient of this beverage is Ceylon Tea, an infusion boasting a vast multitude of noteworthy qualities. Since the 19th century, Ceylon’s Tea industry has made up a significant portion of the country’s economy, and at one point even saved it!
During the 1860s, a plant-based disease made coffee-growing immensely difficult. As a result, farmers turned to Tea production - and haven’t looked back since!
Ginger, on the other hand, has been used for millennia. This much-loved spice Ginger Root known botanically as Zingiber officinale, is a member of the Zingiberaceae family.
Easily recognised by its bold peppery notes and zesty overtones, ginger is also a remarkably health-beneficial herb. When combined with black tea, it makes for a match made in heaven - as, hopefully, you’re about to find out!

Health Benefits of Ginger Black Tea
Did you know that habitual Tea drinking (at least three times a week) could support a longer, healthier life? This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 participants split into two groups.
The first group was comprised of volunteers who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group, meanwhile, included those who drank less than three brews a week.
Both sets of test subjects were followed-up for a median of 7.3 years, the results ultimately establishing that 50-year-old habitual Tea drinkers had a 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease. Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or seldom drank Tea.
