Savoring Your Experience:
This ginger-forward blend would be a great complement to stir-fry and noodle dishes. A warm udon soup would pair nicely with a steaming cup of this herbal tisane on a cold winter day. Summer may call for an iced glass of Blueberry Ginger with a cool buckwheat noodle salad.
This blend would also team up deliciously well with a fruit salad. Toss a handful of fresh blueberries into the mix, and serve a few dark chocolate medallions alongside the fruit salad to take the sweetness up a notch.
Research has shown ginger to have therapeutic properties from its antioxidants, and direct anti-inflammatory effects. Historically, ginger has been effective in alleviating symptoms of digestive and gastrointestinal issues. Ginger is said to be a source of magnesium and potassium and may help with both nausea and inflammation.
The counterpart of this herbal blend, blueberry, is high in several vitamins and minerals, and consumption may benefit the cardiovascular system.
