I love, love, love Tazo's Green Ginger tea. It's the perfect thing to drink in the afternoon when you want a little pick-me-up without the harsh kick in the pants of a cup of coffee. However, at $4 to $5 for a box of 20, it's not exactly cheap (especially if you drink lots of it). So, I decided to try a little experiment. I bought a box of cheaper green tea and a piece of ginger root. Then I cut a few slices of ginger and steeped it with the tea bag in boiling water. The result is a pretty close match to the Tazo tea and a fraction of the cost. I think next time I'll try an even less expensive green tea to see if it is drinkable.
