Ginger Tea Recipe - Delicious,
Easy-to-Make and So Very Healthy!

Spice and herbal teas make a lovely change from a regular drink and a cup of fresh ginger tea is no exception! Not only do you get the light lovely flavour, there are also a ton of health and well-being benefits!

 Although both the fresh root and pre-ground powder contain a wealth of healthy goodness, I only use the root for my drinks.

Fresh Ginger Root Tea Recipe

Ingredients: (makes 2 cups)

2 cups water
½ inch (2cm) piece of root
½ tsp grated nutmeg
2 tbsp orange juice
Honey or agave nectar (optional)


  • Thinly slice or grate the root and put in a saucepan with the water and add the nutmeg. Slowly bring to the *boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes
  • Turn off the heat, add the orange juice and steep for 5 minutes
  • Pour through a strainer and enjoy!

Add some honey or agave if you like your drinks a bit sweeter.

*I don't boil the root for long as this can destroy the essential oils and therefore some of the benefits.
