This tea is probably one of the easiest to make but many people still buy it in tea bag form. The quality of the ingredients in tea bags are generally not nearly as good as the stuff found in loose leaf tea packages or just outright fresh ingredients. Luckily all you need in this recipe is one small knob of fresh ginger root.

Ginger Tea Recipe
- 1-2 inch (2.5 – 5 cm) piece of fresh ginger root (roughly 2 Tbsp)
- 4 Cups of water
- Honey or sugar
- Slice the ginger into thin pieces.
- In a pot over high heat add the water and ginger root. Bring to the boil.
- Once boiling reduce to a simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Strain the tea and mix in any extras. (See brewing tips below)
- Serve & Enjoy
- If you like your ginger tea sweet, then I recommend adding some honey or sugar to it. I personally prefer honey over white sugar as it has a bit more of a unique flavor to it. It’s also unrefined unlike most sugars.
- Another great thing I love adding to this recipe is a slice of lemon or lime. I would only add this just before you’re about to drink the tea.
- If you really want to change the flavor a bit then you can try adding some other ingredients such as mint, chamomile tea, cinnamon and so on. I would only add these within the last 5 minutes of the steeping process. Any longer may result in a funky tasting tea.
Another couple of amazing refreshing teas you should try out is both the super easy rosemary tea and also the refreshing hibiscus tea. These both have lots of amazing health benefits making them perfect if you’re a feeling a little run down.
