Ginger Tea

Lately I’ve been making up a 2 quart pitcher of ginger tea to drink either hot or iced. I keep it in the frig for up to 3 -4 days. Ginger tea has a spicy, invigorating taste!

There are a lot of benefits to including ginger in your diet. It’s used as a home remedy for indigestion, nausea, and to ward off colds, flu, and sore throats.  Ginger tea is great for people who tend to get stomach upset from the acid in green or black teas.  Also, we can drink it any time of the day or night without the caffeine.  Even de-caf green tea keeps me awake if I drink it in the afternoon or evening.

Ginger tea is very easy to make. Here is a recipe for you to try.

Ginger Tea Recipe

  • filtered water, 8 cups
  • 4-inch piece of fresh ginger root
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia

Peel the ginger root and slice it into thin slices. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Once it is boiling, add the ginger. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain the tea. Add stevia or sweetener of your choice.
