Aside from being a popular spice, ginger truly is a superfood. Its health benefits range from being a natural antibiotic, to its anti-inflammatory properties, to its digestive soothing effects, and more. One of my favorite ways to enjoy ginger is in tea form and it’s so easy to make at home.

I make my ginger tea using raw, pealed, ginger root and filtered water. The amount of ginger I use varies depending on who will be drinking it. I love the taste of ginger, so I’ll use quite a lot when I make it for myself. This also means that my tea packs a pretty big nutritional punch because I use so much of the root.

Simply put the raw, pealed ginger root in a pot with the filtered water and bring it to a boil. Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat and cover the pot allowing the tea to simmer for about 40 minutes. When you serve the tea, feel free to put a dash of cinnamon, or a touch of honey to add some sweetness. Enjoy!
