Ginger Tea Recipe

Ginger Tea is a delicious herbal tea that is made with the roots of the ginger plant.  It has been consumed for centuries to help prevent and treat nausea, but it has many other benefits as well.  The unique flavor of ginger makes it blend well with other herbs and spices.  I have been trying to encourage readers to try this wonderful tea, so I have decided to create this Ginger Tea Recipe post.

Make sure to check out my Ultimate Guide to Ginger Tea to learn everything about this delicious tea.

Prior to Making Ginger Tea

Make sure to speak with a healthcare professional prior to completing this Ginger Tea Recipe.  Ginger tea is a safe form of herbal tea that has minimal risks, especially when it is consumed in reasonable amounts.  Consuming high levels of ginger might possibly interact with certain prescription medications.  Your healthcare provider can help you avoid any potential negative side effects.

GINGER TEA RECIPE: GUIDE

This Ginger Tea Recipe post actually contains 2 separate recipes.  Both can be used to make a delicious cup of ginger tea, and I recommend trying both to determine your favorite.  I realize that taste is subjective, and everyone experiences flavors in unique ways.  Feel free to experiment and revise a Ginger Tea Recipe below to fit your personal taste preferences.  Both of these recipes can be served hot or cold, so you can enjoy throughout the year!

Ginger Turmeric Tea

  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon (or two 1″ sticks)
  • 2 Teaspoons of Honey
  • 2 Teaspoons of Sugar (or to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Pour Water (3 Cups) in your herbal teapot.  Bring to a low boil
  2. Reduce heat and add the the crushed Ginger Root (1 Teaspoon), ground Turmeric (1 Tsp), Cinnamon (1 Tsp) and Sugar (2 Tsp) to the infuser section of your teapot.
  3. Gently stir the liquid section of your teapot and steep on low heat for ~10 minutes.
  4. Remove teapot from heat and turn off heat.  Allow pot to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Pour tea into your desired teacup.  If you don’t have an herbal teapot with an infuser, you should pour through a strainer to remove plant pieces.
  6. Stir in Honey (1 Tsp per cup) and additional sugar to taste, if desired.  Now your tea is ready to enjoy!

Note: This recipe can also be enjoyed as iced tea.  Follow the same instructions through Step #4, but place the teapot in the fridge and allow to cool for 2-3 hours.  Place ice into desired serving glasses, and follow the remaining instructions on Step #5 and Step #6.

Purchase Quality Ginger Tea

I suggest purchasing chopped or loose ginger roots rather than ginger tea bags.  I have personally tried several quality brands, and I have included my favorite option below.  I understand that many readers do not have time to brew loose ginger tea, so I have also included high quality ginger tea bags.  Both of the products are reasonably priced and can be purchased on Amazon by clicking the pictures or links below.

Loose Chopped Ginger Root


Chopped Ginger Root (4 oz.)

Amazon does sell full ginger roots, but I recommend purchasing this chopped ginger root.  It is slightly more expensive, but it saves the time traditionally required to chop the roots.  This product is very fresh and reasonably priced at $6.85.  It brings out the most desirable flavors, and it has a wonderful aroma.  Click the picture or link above to learn more or purchase on Amazon, if desired.

Ginger Tea Bags


Numi Organic Turmeric & Ginger (36 Tea Bags Total)

You are probably already familiar with the Numi brand of herbal teas.  I feel that Numi excels at providing quality blended tea bags, and this product fits that profile.  Turmeric blends perfectly with ginger, and the small amounts of licorice and rose take it to another level.  It is currently priced at $17 for 36 tea bags.  Click the picture or link above to learn more or purchase on Amazon, if desired.
