Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1-2 cups of ginger tea
- 4-6 thin slices raw ginger
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups water
- juice from 1/2 lime, or to taste
- 1-2 tbsp honey or agave nectar, or to taste
Boil the ginger in water for at least 10 minutes. For a stronger and tangier tea, allow to boil for 20 minutes or more, and use more slices of ginger. You really can't over do it, so feel free to add as much ginger and simmer it for as long as you want.
Remove from heat and add lime juice and honey (or agave nectar) to taste.
The secret to making a really flavorful ginger tea is to use plenty of ginger - more than you think you will need - and also to add a bit of lime juice and honey to your ginger tea. You will also probably want to add more honey than you think you will need as well.
Enjoy your hot ginger tea! A homemade ginger tea is excellent in soothing stomach aches and in aiding digestion.
