Easy Ginger Tea

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lennie

This is one of my absolute favourite things to drink, other than coffee and regular tea, that is! It's so easy, and it's good for you, too! You can buy ginger tea in packets, but it's better (and cheaper, too) to just make your own with fresh ginger. Thanks to Cdn Living Magazine for the original recipe I based this on!

I am amazed at how simple and great tasting your recipe is! I will definitely be using this again. Can hardly wait for my wife to get home for her to try it. <br/><br/>I do want to make a comment in general about rating recipes. If the recipe is modified in any way I believe it's unfair to rate it. For example, Lennie's recipe... see virtually all ratings are 5 stars but one that used candied ginger instead of ginger root ..... then that person dropped the rating to 4 stars!!!! Booooo! <br/><br/>Thanks for the recipe Lennie!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place grated ginger into a 2-cup glass measuring cup.
  2. Fill to the 1-1/2 cup line with boiling water.
  3. Set timer for 10 minutes.
  4. When timer goes off, strain into a large mug and stir in sugar (you may need more or less, depending on how sweet you want your tea).
  5. Taste; if it's too strong (too gingery) for you, add a little more boiling water to your mug, but I found the strong taste really grew on me, so I hope you try it this way first!
  6. Sip and enjoy!
  7. Note#1: If that's too much, you can use just 1 tsp grated ginger and just 1 cup of boiling water, but I like a big mug.
  8. Note#2: a squeeze of lemon can be added, and maple syrup is an interesting replacement for the white sugar.
  9. Note#3: If you triple or quadruple this recipe, you can make a lovely pot of ginger tea instead of a single serving.
