Preparing Ginger Root Tea
Ginger root tea is a delicious and warming beverage that can be enjoyed any time of year. Here are some simple steps to help you prepare the perfect cup of ginger root tea at home.
- Fresh ginger root
- A mortar and pestle
- A pot
- Boiling water
- Honey or lemon (optional)
- Start by washing and peeling the ginger root. If it’s difficult to peel, you can also use a spoon to scrape off the outer layer.
- Using a mortar and pestle, grind the ginger root until it’s a paste. Once it looks like a paste, take it out and place it in a pot.
- Add the boiling water to the pot, stirring the ginger paste until it is dissolved.
- Simmer the mixture for at least 10 minutes, adding more water as needed.
- Finally, strain the tea and enjoy it with raw honey or lemon, whichever you prefer. Both will add sweetness and enhance the flavor of the tea.
- If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use a blender or food processor. Once blended, you can use a cheesecloth to strain the tea.
- You can make multiple cups of tea from one batch of paste. Just make sure to warm it before the second cup.
