5 Takes on Ginger Tea


Ginger is a great go to for any season, but especially in spring. It's gently warming to help with digestion,, absorption and elimination; it has a "bite" that brightens up the palette and spirit; and anti-inflammatory qualities that help with allergies.


All of the recipes are scaled to 3 cups of water, but you can certainly reduce or increase on scale. I tend to make these teas in large batches to keep in a thermos to sip through the day.


For the herbs and spices, gently crush them before putting them in strainer to release the flavor. For the ginger, you can mash it a bit or just cut it into smaller chunks.
