There are only two basic ingredients to ginger tea. Water and ginger. The key to good ginger tea is the quality of the water - filtered is best, and the quality of the ginger root - try to get a fresh root, firm and not mushy and organic if possible. Dried out ginger makes a substandard tea.
How to Make Ginger Tea
>Now that you have a high quality water, and high quality ginger root - you are ready to go.
I like to slice the ginger root on the diagonal so I get lots of flesh exposed. I don't peel it, but I do wash it very well before I begin slicing the ginger root very thin on the diagonal.
For each 8 ounces of water, I slice at least three slices of ginger root, sometimes more. I then boil the water hard, remove from the heat and add the ginger slices. Let it steep 8 minutes and strain.
You can add lemon and honey to the basic ginger tea recipe, but it tastes great all on its own.
