Description

Red Tea with Ginger

As well as bringing the wonderful warming of Ginger to our premium camellia Assamica tea, Ginger has quite an ancient connection with tea in general.

Ginger originates in Asia where it has been used for centuries not only as a calming beverage, but also as a medicine for many ailments. It was quite an expensive commodity.

The traditional measure for ginger was approximately 1-1/3lb, or 600g, and was sold in earthenware jars for easy transportation and storage.

These jars became the container of choice for the leaves of the camellia – tea.

When Western explorers discovered tea and brought it to the west, they brought it in these jars and named the containers for the weight they held.

The Chinese name for this weight?

It is the ‘Catty’, from which we have the traditional name for our tea containers:

The Tea Caddy.
