How to Make Ginger Tea
Ginger is one amazing spice. It is used in a large variety of foods, not only for its outstanding flavor but also for its medicinal purposes. Ginger has been used to aid in healthy digestion, to break fevers, to reduce nausea, to act as an antibiotic, to boost the immune system, and even to help with overall gut health.
Women who are pregnant often use ginger as a way to help with relief from morning sickness. It’s one of the few things that is safe and beneficial for women who are pregnant or nursing to use ginger in a variety of ways. While some may suck on candies made from ginger, or use the essential oil, you can also make a delicious Ginger Tea. (Here are a few more Natural Morning Sickness Remedies also.)
Ginger Tea is simple enough to make for a beginner and only requires a few ingredients. Best of all, the recipe we use utilizes fresh ginger, which will ensure you get the maximum effects from the ginger itself. While ginger has a strong, sometimes spicy flavor, when it’s cooked properly as a tea, the flavor is rich and enjoyable!
Another great tea to try is this Strawberry Apple Fruity Loose Tea. It’s a wonderful blend of fresh fruits and tea!
