I drink ginger tea a few times a week. This holds in 2 to 3 times. Why I do this is very simple. I think it taste delicious and because it is healthy. Also because it is very different from all other teas flavors. And not to forget: it is pure and fresh.
How to make my Fresh Ginger Tea:
- Boil water with the kettle.
- Grab a piece of organic ginger root and wash it. Dry it off.
- Cut the ginger into small pieces. It does not have to be perfect.
- Water is now cooked. Put the water in a teapot and put the pieces of ginger into it (the amount can be determined by yourself. I myself use half a ginger root).
- Put the pot on the fire and cook at low fire for a maximum of 10 to 15 minutes (the longer you cook, the stronger and darker the tea will be!).
- Pour the tea into a cup and enjoy! Voila!
Benefits of ginger tea:
- Promotion of the stool
- Helps with nausea
- Helps a bloated belly
- Promoting blood circulation
- Helps detoxify your body
- Creation of saliva and thus better digestion of proteins and thus better absorption of nutrients
- Supports weight loss, as additional support in addition to a healthy diet and regular movement
- Illumination of migraine and reduction of attacks on regular eating of ginger
- Ginger is a natural blood thinner (not recommended in combination with aspirin or other blood thinners)
The tea is the best when you drink it hot. You feel your body getting warm from inside. Sometimes it feels a bit sour in your throat, but thats why ginger tea is so delicious!
You can vary ginger tea as you like. With cinnamon, lemon or honey for example. What I like is to combine it with honey. It gives a sweet taste to your tea and it is soothing for your throat (if you have a cold!).
Ginger tea thaws your blood so do not use it (for the girls among us) too often during your period. Also, after swallowing of paracetamol or other medicines that dilute your blood.
