Now that you have spotted all the good things ginger has to offer and are already half way to the store to stack up, why not boil some water and have yourself a merry cup of delicious ginger tea. It’s as easy as you’re used to:
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated gingerroot
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 teaspoons honey or sugar
Place grated ginger into a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Fill to the 1-1/2 cup line with boiling water. Set timer for 10 minutes. When the timer goes off, strain into a large mug and stir in sugar or honey (you may need more or less, depending on how sweet you want your tea). Taste; if it’s too strong (too gingery) for you, add a little more boiling water to your mug.
You can add a pinch of cinnamon or cayenne pepper to it to spice up the taste. You can also drink it iced, just store it in the refrigerator after steeping. Sip and enjoy!
There is nothing greater than introducing in your diet a natural healer that prevents diseases and also aids in your overall wellbeing. And to add to all that you can enjoy it as a cup of tea. Ginger is truly a blessing.
