How to Make Ginger Tea

Treat yourself to a cup of piping hot ginger tea, a healthy drink that's great for digestion. Why go out and buy old tea bags when you can easily make your own homemade ginger tea at home using fresh ginger? Here's how to make the tastiest and most soothing and healing ginger tea you've ever had! You can thank me later.

  • 4-6 thin slices raw ginger (or more!)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups water
  • juice from 1/2 lime, or to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp honey or agave nectar, or to taste 


Peel the ginger and slice thinly to maximize the surface area. This will help you make a very flavorful ginger tea.
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.
Add lime or honey. Enjoy!

The healing ginger tea recipe actually comes from the raw food and natural center in Thailand, where they served it guests every morning, seven days a week. The secret to the perfect healing ginger tea? Lots of lots of fresh ginger, simmered for 30mnts to bring out the flavor, and lime to which compliments the ginger perfectly. Try it for an immune system boost or for an invigorating way to start the morning.
