Teatime with Mrs. Joho: Celestial Seasonings Ginger + Probiotics

Hello and welcome to Teatime with Mrs. Joho. Today I will be discussing Ginger + Probiotics tea from Celestial Seasonings.

When I first started my tea drinking adventure a couple of years ago, I wanted to find something different but would also help with weight loss. When I saw the Ginger + Probiotics tea, I took a look at the ingredients. Not only does it have ginger, obviously, but also cinnamon, licorice, cardamom, turmeric, and Bacillus Coagulans GBI-30 6086. Do not let that name frighten you. I'll admit at first I was a little alarmed because I thought, "Oh my gosh, there's bacteria in this tea." However, it's not bad bacteria. I did my research.

Bacillus Coagulans are probiotics (live microorganisms that help with your belly) that have many benefits, including improving abdominal pain and bloating (especially for anyone who suffers from IBS) and increasing immune response to viruses that you may have. See, it's not so bad! And the other ingredients have similar benefits for the digestive system.

Ginger helps with upset stomach and nausea. Cardamom helps improve digestion and appetite. But these spices have a plethora of other helpful benefits, including:

  • Ginger: It may aid with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis pain as well as headaches.

  • Cardamom: It may help with bad breath, improve blood circulation to the lungs (which can help with asthma and bronchitis), and reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

  • Cinnamon: It may help reduce blood sugar in people with diabetes.

  • Licorice: It may help treat liver disorders and rheumatoid arthritis as it has anti-inflammatory properties.

This tea definitely has more of a spicy flavor then a burnt or earthy flavor. You can taste (and smell) the cinnamon and the ginger as the tea bag steeps in hot water. It took me a little getting used to because of how spicy it is (not hot like a jalapeno), but it is really good. I like to drink this when I have an upset stomach and it helps.
