Ginger Tea

Author Barbara


  • Ginger
  • Water


Preparing the Ginger

  1. Thoroughly wash the ginger. I put it in water with about 1/2 cup vinegar to soak. I also use my mushroom brush, especially in all the crevices.

  2. Process in food processor until coarsely chopped. See image.

    Cut Up Ginger
  3. Package your cut up ginger in 1 cup increments. I freeze the pre-measured ginger for later use.

Making the Ginger Tea

  1. Put 1 cup cut up ginger in the basket of your tea pot.

  2. Fill tea pot with boiling water. My tea pot holds about 40 ounces of water.

  3. Let the tea steep for at least 3 hours.

  4. Refrigerate.

Recipe Notes

  • Cleaning the ginger is important. It's a root so it has been in the ground. Therefore it has dirt on it.
  • Peeling the ginger is not required. Obviously, because then it wouldn't be the simple recipe I was searching for.
  • I buy several pounds of ginger at a time, cut it all up and freeze it. That way you have to clean the food processor less often!
  • Buying large quantities of ginger at once is known to spark conversations while in line at the grocery store. ;)
