How to Cut Ginger Root for Tea

One of the best ways to enjoy the spicy and intense flavor of ginger root is by making it into a cup of tea. Ginger root tea has numerous benefits, such as its ability to reduce inflammation, stimulate digestion and calm an upset stomach. Here is a short guide on how to cut ginger root for tea:

What You’ll Need

  • Fresh ginger root
  • Knife
  • Cheese grater


  • Wash and Peel the Ginger Root: Begin by washing the ginger root under cool water. Use a vegetable or fruit brush to remove dirt for a thorough clean. Then, using a knife or spoon, peel the ginger root. Make sure to remove any discoloration or left-over dirt.
  • Cut the Root into Slices: Slice the peeled ginger root into thin, round slices. This will allow it to steep fully and release its flavor into the water.
  • Grind the Slices: If you’d like a stronger flavor, it’s best to grind the slices into a powder. Use a cheese grater to grind the ginger root slices until you have a fine powder.


Once the ginger root is cut and ground into the desired shape, it’s ready to be used for tea. To make ginger tea, simply steep the pieces in boiling water for about five minutes. Once the tea is finished, enjoy a warm, spicy, immune-boosting cup of ginger root tea.
