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…
Add a bit of grated ginger (or a small piece) and jam it into a tea strainer. If you don’t have a tea strainer you could use a homemade tea bag 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.
Step 3. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Longer than 5 minutes will make a stronger tea, and 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. If you put your ginger in loose and without a strainer, take a few moments to strain out the ginger.
Step 5. Add the milk and sugar. Here’s where using the saucepan on the stove works well…you can add the milk to the tea and heat it a bit before drinking. If you use the teapot, the milk cools the tea down a bit when added to the glass.
