  • First, wash the ginger thoroughly in running water. Scrub the ginger well and then peel the skin off using the peeler or the spoon. Peeling is optional. In case you aren’t peeling the ginger, make sure you wash it really well.
  • Now, using a sharp knife slice the ginger into thin small slices.
  • In a vessel, set the water to a boil for the tea.
  • Place the ginger slices in a tea pot and after the water boils, pour the hot water into the teapot. Immediately close the lid of the pot. Keep the ginger slices steeped in the pot for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Alternatively, you can also add the ginger slices into the water when it is boiling. Make sure you keep the lid of the vessel closed, so that the aroma of the ginger doesn’t disperse out. Simmer for 20 minutes and then let it sit for 5 minutes. Thereafter, pour the tea into a teapot.
  • For a less stronger brew, you should boil or steep the ginger for a little about 10 minutes.
  • Another method is to keep the ginger slices in a teapot and steep it in cup of tea for 15 minutes. Cover the cup so that the tea doesn’t cool down fast and also to prevent the ginger aroma from escaping.
  •  Before serving, strain the tea so that you exclude the ginger slices.
  • You can also add a squeeze of lime juice or sweeten it with honey before drinking. Ginger tea is best when served hot. But you can also have an iced ginger tea. Simply let the hot ginger tea come to room temperature and then either add a few cubes of ice or keep it in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Ginger tea can also be made in a microwave. Simply keep two to three slices of ginger in a mug and then fill it with water. Microwave the tea for two minutes and then stir the tea to blend.
