Decent Instant Ginger Tea Drink

  • Apr 26, 2012
Co-workers introduced me to instant Ginger "tea". I've purchased a few different brands locally. I prefer the instant in this case because tea-bag varieties I've tried tend to lack flavor and be quite tame. I like my ginger with a kick to it!

Gold Kili's Ginger-Lemon drink has that kick, though it isn't the strongest I've tasted. That honor goes to Instant Crystal Honey Ginger Tea. The Gold Kili brand drink is almost as strong, yet its sweetness has a slightly artificial flavor. Not totally off-putting, but noticeable. The lemon flavor is there too, but very subdued. I prefer the honey taste of the other brand.

The Gold Kili instant ginger drink can handle more than 6-8 oz. of liquid without tasting watered down, and I recommend 10-12 for most folks. I can see it mixing well in various cocktails as well. Medicinal effects of ginger are well documented, though I don't know how effective they are in this formulation. Just be mindful that this is an instant beverage and not the same as one made with fresh ingredients. You get it for the convenience.

Oooooh, I don't think I've ever tried an instant drink like this before, but it sounds good. I also enjoy steeping fresh ginger slices in hot water :)

Thanks Devora. It isn't quite the same as fresh or dried ginger, but it's decent for what it is. You should also try steeping dried ginger in your favorite alcohol...it makes for a tasty cocktail after letting it sit a few days. :)

I really like herbal teas, I often enjoy a cu or two of cider, and like to use ginger in various recipes. So I was fully expecting to enjoy this ginger-flavored beverage. However, it's incredibly strong and pungent taste really hit me for the first sip, and I literally recoiled. A friend of mine also tried it and she had pretty much the same reaction with just barely tasting a drop of it. I didn't dare to offer it to my wife, as she is a "supertaster," and would probably have even more adverse reaction …

About this product


Gold Kili's Instant Ginger Lemon Beverage Mix is made from top grade ginger and honey to give a unique taste, providing goodness and fragrance when consumed. Enhanced with tangy natural lemon flavor,the taste is certainly refreshing. Traditionally, ginger is used as-a spice to flavor food, however, people from many countries around Asia e g. India, China, Indonesia, etc, consume ginger products for motion sickness, to aid digestion and to restore the balance in the body. The inner foil envelope contains instantly dissolving crystals that make a spicy beverage. You can control the depth of favor by how much you add to you cup.
