Fresh Ginger tea, easy as 1,2,3………….
Ginger tea is one of those teas that is great even when you want to drink it just because. But Ginger tea can also be so much more, it is immune busting, stomach woes fighting, Migraine calming, sore throat stopping & sinus relief Ah-mazing.
Ginger: Oh yes ginger is one of those must keep around remedies that is great for so many uses, yes you can cook with it, we all love gingerbread & ginger cookies & how about ginger ale (made with water kefir & it is even better). But ginger is so much more, it has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic & antioxidant properties & contains over a dozen different antiviral compounds, & It also has a sedative effect that can help you deal with a stressful day or get a good nights sleep. Ginger tea is also one my kids favorites when they are feeling bad or just because.

Fresh Ginger: For the health benefits from ginger fresh is best. So go get some fresh ginger, leave it whole, wash it & store it in a glass jar with a lid in the fridge for longer storage. A tip to help the ginger stay fresh longer & mold free is to spray inside the jar & on the ginger with colloidal silver or food grade peroxide water. Keeping it fresh even longer,If you do not use all of the ginger before it starts going bad, simply peel the ginger & grate or finely cut it & freeze it to use in baking, cooking, soups, teas etc later.
Ginger Tea: Yes you can buy bags of ginger tea already for you to make some great tea yourself, but depending on who you ask the benefits are far better to use fresh ginger tea. Fresh ginger tea is pretty easy & worth the little extra work & you are far more likely to get the benefits you are looking for when you use fresh.
Fresh Ginger tea how to: Start boiling 1 cup of water, remove your jar of ginger from the fridge, (or grated ginger from the freezer) break or cut off a portion of the ginger, peel, then grate or finely cut enough ginger for 1 tbsp., add the grated ginger to the water once it starts simmering, turn off, cover & let steep 5 to 7 minutes, then strain out ginger (some prefer to leave it in) add to mug & sweeten with raw honey.
