How To Make Honey Ginger Lemon Hot Tea Drink with Lemongrass - Ottogi Brand Featured

Grocery shopping at this time of lockdown can be difficult, quick buys of certain items from the grocery with lots of precautions are the new normal. Window shopping is not allowed at this time. With the limited stores that are open and essential items can be quickly emptied on the shelves, you will be lucky to score some items...like the ones we got from the Korean store inside the base. 

The essential item that we badly need was some bottles of plain honey which we are using for our morning lemon hot tea. Since there was none, we opted and tried this Ottogi Honey Ginger tea. But, before that, let me show you some snacks and other food items we hauled from this Korean store.



Assorted Korean Ice Cream 
(Samanco red bean and Matcha, Cledor, and Cookie-O)
A can of Dong Won Korean Luncheon Meat
One small bag of Kimchi
A box of Korean Pancake Hotteok Mix 400g
A jar of Ottogi Honey Ginger Tea

Ottogi Honey Ginger Tea
This is the first time we will be using this brand, this has honey in it and can be a replacement for natural honey in tea. 


1. Boil water or you can have your base tea with some steeped lemongrass boiled in water like the ones I used here that is why tea is somehow yellow already. 
2. Slice some lemon, you can add more according to your preference. 



3. Add a teaspoonful of Ottogi Honey Ginger Tea. As you can see, the consistency of the Ottogi Honey Ginger is somehow gelatinous. When I popped open the jar, the smell of the ginger was very evident. You can also see slices of ginger root. 
You can add more depending on your sweetness preference, but for me, one teaspoonful was enough. 


4. Mix well until the jelly melts. 

5. Squeeze some lemon to add more sour taste and making this drink infused with Vitamin C. 
Well, everyone knows the health benefits of lemon juice as one of the main sources of Vitamin C (59 grams lemon contains 31mg of Vit.C) which we badly needed to boost our immune system while on lockdown. Btw, we are now on Day 61 of the Covid19 pandemic lockdown. 

We had this almost every morning as a drink starter on an empty stomach. The whole jar lasted for two weeks. 

Will I buy another jar? For US$5.50 (Php278) per bottle, I would although I still prefer using the natural honey syrup as a sweetener and it's health benefits Ottogi brand can be used as an added tea ingredient. And, it has a delightful taste which I like. 

Have you tried this brand before, how was your experience?
