As Told by Ginger…Tea

           As a kid growing up, I absolutely hated tea! Eventually, I grew to like Ginger (and Chai) tea because not only is it tasty, but it is a bit spicy as well. The Ginger Root has been used in many cultures for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. The health benefits of ginger include soothing a sore stomach, weight loss,  temporary pain relief. Need I say more?

INGREDIENTS

1 Ginger Root
1 1/2 Cup of water
1 T of brown sugar or honey

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Set a small pot on the stove to boil
  2. Shave the skin off of the ginger root
  3. Chop the ginger root (by this point you should only see the off-white part) into small pieces
  4. Deposit the chopped pieces of the ginger into the boiling water
  5. Let it boil for 10 minutes and then turn off the stove for the contents to cool
  6. Pour the liquid into a mug and sweeten to taste with either brown sugar or honey

Serve cold on a hot day or warm on a cold night!
