The intriguing mix of mid grown pure Ceylon tea and Ginger makes this tea a unique combination. The history of Ginger began 5,000 years ago, when Indians and ancient Chinese considered it a tonic root for all ailments. At an early date Ginger was traded to Rome from India. After the fall of the Roman empire, the Arab took control of the Ginger and spice trade from the east. Ginger is originally from Southeast Asia but has long been cultivated in other countries too.
