Recipe Tips

  • If you like your ginger tea sweet, then I recommend adding some honey or sugar to it. I prefer honey over white sugar as it has a bit more of a unique flavor to it. It’s also unrefined, unlike most sugars.
  • Another great thing I love adding to this recipe is a slice of lemon or lime. I would only add this just before you’re about to drink the tea.
  • If you want to change the flavor a bit, then you can try adding some other ingredients such as mint, chamomile tea, cinnamon, and so on. I would only add these within the last 5 minutes of the steeping process. Any longer may result in a funky tasting tea.
