Raw Ginger, sliced thinly or grated

Boiling water (heat the teapot first so the water doesn’t cool too much when added)

Fresh Lemon, flavour enhancement

Honey, if a little sweetness is desired


Slice the ginger thinly or grate approximately 1/2 an inch of the raw ginger root into a tea pot and cover with boiling water. You should let it stand for 5-10 minutes so the water infuses with the ginger. Use the lemon slices to enhance the flavour so the ginger is more palatable. This is especially good if you struggle with excess heat from spices. Pour your finished product into a mug and sweeten with a little honey, if desired. Your fresh ginger tea will soon be your go to for indigestion relief.
