A good pot of ginger tea is one of life’s simplest (and healthiest!) pleasures. Here’s how to make the perfect pot from fresh or frozen ginger root—it works every time.
- 1/2 cup fresh ginger, unpeeled, roughly chopped
- 1 quart boiling water
- Honey, to taste
- Fill a tea pot with the ginger. Pour over the boiling water. Cover and let steep for at least an hour, but up to overnight.
- Strain, sweeten to taste with honey, and enjoy.
- If you need to reheat the tea, just strain it into a saucepan on the stove and reheat on low heat until it is just warm enough to dissolve the honey. High heat kills a lot of the beneficial compounds in raw honey, so you don’t really want to be mixing it with tea that’s above about 110°F.
