Getto (Shell Ginger) Tea
12 tea bags – 2 grams each
♥ getto means ‘Moon Peach’ in Japanese
♥ light aroma and taste of pepper mixed with barley and job’s tears (a type of barley) to give it a slightly toasted flavor
♥ this is a rarer type of tea, not often found in stores mostly due to the plant’s cultivation centered in East Asia and largely in Okinawa
℘ Suggested Drinking Style: boil water and steep tea bag for 2-3 minutes. Lightly mix tea bag around and then take it out. Enjoy hot or cold!
℘ What else?: Getto (also known as ‘shell ginger’) can be found growing wild throughout the islands of Okinawa. It’s part of the ginger family and although it has a similar smell to your typical ginger, it looks quite different and is easily recognizable due to its gorgeous white flowers and red berries. The plant is so beautiful that it is used as a decoration in addition to being found in food and cosmetics. Okinawans have been using Getto for centuries to flavor soups, as a wrap for mochi (soft rice cake) and enjoyed as an herbal tea.
Try Getto Tea on its own or in a set with a few of our other favorite Okinawan teas including Sanpin, Goya, and Hibiscus.
