Treat yourself to a cup of piping hot ginger tea, a healthy drink that’s great for digestion. Why go out and buy old tea bags when you can easily make your own homemade ginger tea at home using fresh ginger? Here’s how to make the tastiest and most soothing and healing ginger tea you’ve ever had!
- 4-6 thin slices raw ginger
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups water
- juice from 1/2 lime, or to taste
- 1-2 tbsp honey
Peel the ginger and slice thinly to maximize the surface area. This will help you make a very flavoursome ginger tea.
Boil the ginger in water for at least 10 minutes. For a stronger and tangier tea, allow to boil for 20 minutes or more, and use more slices of ginger. You really can’t over do it, so feel free to add as much ginger and simmer it for as long as you want.
Remove from heat and add lime juice and honey to taste.
The secret to making a really flavoursome ginger tea is to use plenty of ginger – more than you think you will need – and also to add a bit of lime juice and honey to your ginger tea. You will also probably want to add more honey than you think you will need as well.
