    Pinay0618's Note:

    Ginger is a calming and soothing flavour with a touch of a bite to it that helps to keep you alert and calm. Ginger is commonly used to help an upset stomach, motion or travel sickness or general low-grade fevers. It is also excellent for nausea and for warming you up when you feel cold. Ginger is reputed to help ward off colds or improve your recovery time. Other benefits of ginger include: digestive aid, circulation booster, flatulence, colic or indigestion relief, blood sugar reduction, increases perspiration, soothes menstrual pain, helps reduce sinusitis and throat soreness. Tea is the most gentle form of consuming ginger. From wikiHow.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash the ginger.
    2. 2
      Peel the ginger and slice it thinly, in small pieces.
    3. 3
      Boil the water.
    4. 4
      There are three ways to perform the next step - the method will depend on your preference:
    5. 5
      Pour the boiled water into a teapot that you have already placed the freshly sliced ginger into. Put the lid on the teapot to stop the pot cooling down too quickly and to keep the aromatic ingredients in the tea. Steep for 10 - 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      If you boil the water in a saucepan rather than in a kettle, you can add the ginger to the saucepan and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Let it sit for 5 minutes before pouring after simmering.
    7. 7
      Use a teaball to hold the sliced ginger and steep in a cup for 15 minutes. Make sure to use a saucer to cover the top of the cup to prevent the aromatic elements from escaping.
    8. 8
      Strain the tea after steeping or boiling and serve. Add sweeteners or flavour if desired.
    9. 9
      Drink hot, at room temperature or cold - as preferred.

      Perfect, not too strong or weak. I used the cup option and added honey to sweeten. Good to relive stomach cramps. I will make this again.

      I love ginger drinks and this was easy with good results! I used about an inch of ginger which I grated, put in the pot with the water and brought to a boil. I added lemon and a little honey to the cup. Thanks! Made for Comfort Cafe-Jan. 2010.
