Ginger – The Roots From the Tropics

It is a root and grows in the tropics and subtropics. Countries like Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Vietnam grow the tuber and distribute it worldwide. It not only makes food spicy, but can also warm the body from the inside. We are talking about ginger. The incredible all-rounder is not only used as a spice, but also as a medicinal plant and is nowadays the main ingredient of many “it” drinks. In teas and iced teas to cocktails – ginger tastes and is popular!

Rise High with Ginger

Like turmeric, galangal and cardamom, ginger belongs to the ginger family. The plant grows up to two meters and can be used either fresh or dried after harvesting.

Also, did you know that the part of ginger you use in cooking is not the root at all? Rather, it is the thickened shoot axis that stores starch.

When it comes to harvesting, there are also different grades. The best quality is called Jamaican ginger. There is also the so-called Malabar ginger and West African ginger. The latter has the highest degree of pungency.

In the Root Lies the Power

Its flavor can be combined with a variety of foods – citrus, herbs such as mint or lemongrass. But its pungency also harmonizes wonderfully with sweetness. This range of combinations allows cultures around the world to incorporate ginger into their cuisine. Not only in the Asian region, but also in our country, ginger is used. A simple ginger lemon water, for example, refreshes at any time of the year. Cold in summer, as well as warm in winter.

TEEKANNE Ginger Teas

We recommend our TEEKANNE ginger teas to all ginger lovers. We refine the tuber either classically with lemons or oranges, but also exotically with mango or turmeric. For the perfect taste development, we recommend a brewing time of our ginger teas of 5-8 minutes – after that, nothing stands in the way of tea enjoyment!
