To be honest, I, like you had my doubts on this product… until I gave it a shot and IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. It actually caught me by surprise too, the idea of combining ginger and wholegrains.
So, I’m sure everyone have heard of Teh Halia and the usual ginger tea after a massage. And also, why do new mothers consume so much ginger during their confinement? What exactly is the big hype on ginger?
First and foremost, there are 3 types of ginger.
- Young Ginger 嫩姜

Bamboo Ginger hails from mountains of Taiwan and only grows at 1000m above sea level. It takes 7 years to harvest, and that’s why it is the spiciest!

You must be thinking, “I don’t have any of the above health issues, so why does this concerns me?”. Well, in countries where the weather is hot and humid, one would frequently eat cold food and beverages just to keep cool.
However, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine — consuming cold food and beverages can damage the spleen in the long run. This will affect our spleens’ function to process nutrients efficiently, resulting in a lower immunity system. In TCM, this would be called Yang deficient and would result in the following systems;
- Cold hands and feet
- Inability to tolerate cold weather
- Poor blood circulation
- Easily tired or sick due to poor immunity
Ginger, is a yang food, which can warm our bodies up by promoting blood circulation.
