"Ingat" ("take care" or "be careful" in Tagalog) is the inspiration behind this tangy, earthy, and floral tisane. With a base of ginger root from the Province of Batangas, Philippines, and sweet-sour kumquat, this herbal tea reminds us of salabat, a traditional Filipino herbal tea, with a touch of old-fashioned lemon drops.

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that offer in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
I've purchased this tea a couple of times and will likely continue to so long as it keeps getting restocked. I very much like the warmth of the ginger and that it settles me whether I drink it on its own or to close out a heavier meal. I think this is a unique and delicious blend that celebrates the ingredients of other cultures.
It's takes a while for it to steep long enough to fully experience the flavors (usually needs to steep it a second time or longer than the required 3min), but overall it's good! The ginger flavor is one of the stronger notes.
The ingat tea was a gift. But I had amazing help from Ren, he was kind, knowledgeable, sightful and had alot of patient with me. My sister and I can't wait to go there again-when we get paid again.
It tastes like the ginger tea my mom makes me drink when I'm sick, but it's got a citrus flavor to it too. If you follow the directions on the bag, the flavor isn't too strong. There's no caffeine, so you can rest well after drinking it.
I love the Ingat tea. It’s light and mild. The citrus and ginger together is lovely.
