Use Ginger Tea for calming the stomach

By  | 

Why would you care how to make Ginger tea? Do you have headaches? Well, let me tell you a little something, something about Ginger. It’s a cure-all in a little root. Your tummy loves it, your head loves it, your nerves love it. It’s like one big love fest for your body. Naturally. It’s got this all-natural pain reliever thing about it. It’s a lovely little perk of being the Ginger plant. God said “let’s make this plant have super-powers”…POOF!  

Ginger Tea helps soothe tummies, and heads, and nerves, and my work-out woes. It’s currently my new fave. Right after sleep. Before cold season we drink copius amounts of this stuff. And during cold season. And after. Basically all year long.

Give it a try in your family and see if it does good things for you and yours. We hope that it will help calm tummies and colds for you like it does here in our world.

How to Make Ginger Tea:



Step 1. Take your grated ginger and jam it into a tea strainer. If you don’t have a tea strainer you could use a homemade tea bag (easy!! HERE is the how-to) or put it in loose and strain it with a sieve after brewing.

Step 2. Place your ginger and your tea bag in your boiling water. I put the boiling water, black tea bag, and strainer with ginger into a cute teapot my kids love filled with boiling water.  A saucepan on the stove works just as well. (although, here’s a great excuse to get a cute teapot!).

Step 3. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. More time is a stronger tea, less time is not so strong. For kids, pull it off at about the 4 minute mark.

Step 4. Remove the tea bag and strainer with ginger.

Step 5. Add the milk and sugar. Here’s where using the saucepan on the stove works well…you can heat the milk a bit before drinking. If you use the teapot, the milk cools it down a bit. But…it looks cute!

  1. 1 tablespoon minced, chopped, shredded fresh ginger. We used the small side of the grater.
  2. 2 cups boiling water.
  3. 1 black tea bag.
  4. 1/4 cup evaporated milk (or cream or 1/2 & 1/2 or milk--use almond milk if you have milk allergies)
  5. 4 tsp sugar (to taste)
Now go forth and conquer cold season. And remember the little, lowly Ginger… it’s a root of epic powers!! Hopefully it will help out when your body is fighting germs and colds and all that grossness!

We believe in the healing power food has. Some of our favorites are:

homemade chicken broth
chocolate cake (yes, cake does wonderful things for the soul!)

What foods do you believe help you get feeling better when you are under the weather?

    I love this tea! I love how you wrote this post too. And I love ginger. More lovefest. Have you tried Gin Gins products (especially their chewy candy)? You’ll be addicted!

    Add fresh lemon slices (mush one up for full flavor) and honey, omit the sugar and milk and you have something the local organic food store sells for $4 a mug!!! I just bought ginger today, I’ll try your recipe if you try mine! :)~
