How to make ginger tea at home
Here is an easy-to-follow recipe for making your own ginger tea. You’ll need:
- 4 to 6 thin slices of peeled, raw ginger (add more slices for stronger ginger tea)
- 2 cups of water
- juice from half of a lime or lemon, and honey or agave nectar to taste (optional)
First, wash and scrub the ginger root. Then, peel the ginger and slice thinly. Fill a medium pot with 2 cups of water. Place the ginger slices in the water and let boil gently for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how strong and spicy you like your tea.
Remove from heat. Add lime or lemon juice and honey (or agave) to taste, if desired.
You can also make ginger tea with milk. Boil your ginger root slices in 1 cup of water for 10 minutes, then remove from heat and add 2 cups of milk. Simmer the milk and ginger for five minutes. Serve in your favorite mug.
