How to Make Ginger Tea For a Sore Throat

Brewing ginger tea is an excellent remedy for soothing a sore throat. It has anti-inflammatory properties, can reduce nausea, and can relieve general throat discomforts. Here are the steps to get you started brewing your own ginger tea at home:

Steps for Making Ginger Tea for a Sore Throat

  • Gather your ingredients: fresh ginger root, water, and your sweetener of choice (like honey or agave nectar).
  • Peel and grate the ginger. You’ll need about 1 ½ – 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger.
  • Put the grated ginger into a tea infuser and place it in a mug.
  • Bring a cup of water to a boil. Remove from heat and pour over the infuser.
  • Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the infuser and add a teaspoon of honey or agave nectar.
  • Stir and enjoy your ginger tea!

Tip: Using freshly grated ginger is key to unlocking the medicinal benefits of the tea, so don’t be tempted to use pre-ground ginger powder instead!
