How To Make Fresh Ginger Tea

This ginger tea recipe uses real, fresh ginger to create a drink that’s uniquely warm and soothing. It’s a great drink for curing upset stomachs too.

Preparation: 1 minute
Cooking: 9 minutes
Total: 10 minutes



  • 1inchfresh ginger,no need to peel, sliced into pieces no wider than ¼ inch
  • 1cupwater
  • 1cinnamon stick,Optional flavorings
  • 1inchpiece of fresh turmeric,Optional flavorings, cut into thin slices, same as the ginger, or several sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1thin round of fresh lemon,or orange, and/or 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup as optional add-ins, to taste


  1. Combine the ginger slices and water in a saucepan over high heat. If adding a cinnamon stick, fresh turmeric, or fresh mint, add it now.

  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer for 5 minutes. For extra-strong ginger flavor, simmer for up to 10 minutes.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat. Carefully pour the mixture through a mesh sieve into a heat-safe liquid measuring cup, or directly into a mug.

  4. If desired, serve with a lemon round and/or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, to taste. Serve hot.
