Ginger root tea is a light golden color, and the taste is spicy, hot, and sweet. The fresh root makes a slightly sweet tea, dried ginger is slightly hotter and drier. Ginger is one of my favorite teas, as a single ingredient and as an addition to other herbal blends. You should drink ginger tea daily for a healthy tonic.
|Additions: lemon, honey, |
|Variations:Add ginger to any tea blend where added warmth and energy is wanted|
Drink 1-3 cups of ginger tea daily. Adding just a touch of honey brings out the spicy flavor, and protects the stomach.
- Grate or thinly slice ginger. Use a generous teaspoon of ginger for each cup of water.
- Add to cold water and bring to a boil over medium heat in a covered saucepan.
- Gently simmer for 10 minutes.
- Turn off heat and steep until cool enough to drink.
- Alternatively, you can prepare fresh ginger as an infusion for a lighter taste.
