Coffee is an everyday ritual for most adults in preparation of a long and busy day. But what about winding down or a healthier morning beverage alternative to coffee? Teas can soothe and invigorate your body and with fall weather on the way, there’s no better drink to enjoy the cooler weather.
If you’ve never experienced fresh, homemade tea you’re in for a real treat! This ginger tea recipe is made from natural ginger and is a healthy drink that also aids digestion. Follow this recipe and you’ll be making natural, homemade teas all season long.
How to Make Natural Ginger Tea at Home
This recipe is simple, easy and you can tailor it to your preferred taste. We recommend starting with 2 inches of fresh ginger. To make your tea stronger or weaker you can use more or less ginger. First, peel and thinly slice the ginger. Second, boil the ginger in water for at least 10 minutes. Boiling the ginger longer will help make the tea stronger. Lastly, remove the simmering ginger from the heat and the base of your tea is done!
To sweeten your ginger tea we recommend using lime and honey to taste. You can also add other sweeteners and flavors, such as cinnamon, to add seasonal flair. Once your tea tastes perfect, it’s ready to be served. You can pour it with the ginger slices or strain it so that you’re left with a clear, smooth tea.
Ginger Tea Ingredients:
- Fresh Ginger
- 2 Cups Water
- Lime, Honey or other sweetener
The Benefits of Ginger
In the traditional system of Ayurveda, ginger is referred to as, “vishwabhesaj,” or, “the universal medicine.” Some herbal practitioners call it, “the herbalists best friend.” Ginger is well known for supporting healthy digestion. When the body is able to better digest food, it better absorbs nutrients from food and aids the immune system. Ginger can help stimulate normal processes within your body to help you feel more invigorated.
