This is unlike any kind of ginger tea I’ve ever tried before, and is part of why Lupicia is fast becoming one of my obsessions (although they’re a Japanese company, they have an English language website and many very distinctly Japanese blends among the options- including many options that are rare in the US).
Anyway, the roasted hojicha works so well with the ginger that I can’t help but continue to drink this obsessively. It’s rather calming, and despite ginger being somewhat of an odd choice for summer (too warming!) I’m finding that I’m glad I bought this one nonetheless.
I can’t find it on the American website though- on the Japanese website it’s listed in English as “Japanese ginger tea”, but what the Japanese actually says is Washouga Houjicha, or simply “Japanese-style Ginger Houjicha”. So I dunno :) But I definitely recommend it, and the link to the Japanese page is here: http://www.lupicia.com/html/ja/item/001/016/item15599.html
