Ludy's Premium Instant Ginger Brew (Salabat)

Every time I visit The Spa Wellness, I look forward to a cup or two of their famous ginger tea. Since I can't go to The Spa everyday (lest I reduce my life savings to 0), I decided to just recreate the experience in my own kitchen. Look what I found in the supermarket!

Ludy's Premium Instant Ginger Brew (Salabat)

People usually take salabat (or ginger tea) when they have cough in order to soothe the throat. No, I am not sick. I just enjoy the taste of it. (Someone's getting old...) I wonder if this can improve my voice as well, or is that just a myth?

Ingredients:


For a truly soothing drink, stir 2 teaspoons of Ludy's Salabat into a cup of hot water.


However, I noticed that this salabat is really high in sugar, for every 8g per serving, it contains 6g of sugar. But as a drink, it doesn't really taste that sweet, probably because it tastes more spicy.


The manufacturing and expiry dates are indicated at the base of the glass jar.


The flavor is pretty straightforward - spicy ginger and cayenne plus sugar. (The Spa's ginger tea is sweeter than this.) Ludy's has other versions of this, with salabat with calamansi or lemon.

Price: P55.75
Available in supermarkets. I bought this from Hi-Top Supermarket in Quezon Avenue.

Have you tried salabat? How do you find it?

Love,
Helen
