This is the classical procedure for how to make a Ginger Tea, it is called Ginger water because the only two ingredients are water and ginger.

Ginger water is the classical way of preparing ginger tea

The first times you need to find out how strong or soft you like the tea. You can adjust that by adding more or less water to the same amount of ginger root. I use about half a thumb for 1 liter / 35 ounces of water. This drink is delicious and can be enjoyed hot or cold. The preparation is the same for both:

You Need:

  • 1 Liter of Water
  • Half a thumb of fresh ginger root
  • A Grater
  • A Strainer
  • A Pot
  • A Thermos Jug (optional to keep it hot)
  • Your favorite tea cups

When you prepare Green Tea the water shouldn´t boil because it will make it bitter, but if you know how to make a Ginger Tea you can boil the water without worries. It is very simple, bring the water to boil and grind the ginger root with a grater. When the water is boiling, add the grated ginger wait 10 seconds, stop the stove and remove the pan from the hot surface. Wait 5 minutes so the essential oils and flavors can flower out and the Ginger Tea gets its characteristic taste. Filter the water directly into the thermos jug. The last and most important step to do is: Enjoy it!

PS: In the summertime, let cool down the Ginger Water put it in a bottle or a jar and put it in the fridge. Add some ice cubes into a cup and serve the fresh tea. You can even make ginger ice cubes by putting the ginger water instead of water into the form. Another great way of how to make a ginger tea.

Lemon Ginger Tea

This form of the is called Ginger Tea because we will add Lemon which will give the Ginger Tea a special fragrance and taste.

This form of how to make a ginger tea is a little different than the ginger water. This time we cut the root into 4 to 5 slices and put them into boiling water. Wash the lemon and cut it into 3 to 4 slices and add them to the boiling water for 20 seconds.

Stop the stove and remove the pan. Wait 5 minutes and strain the tea directly into the thermos jug or the cup. You can add another fresh slice of lemon and a bit of fresh peppermint if you like. As you can see the brown sugar is optional because maybe you are trying to lose belly fat and lose weight. Don´t add the sugar then! Personally, I don´t use sugar. Honestly, I like the natural taste better than with sugar.

Orange Cinnamon Ginger Tea

This variety of how to make a ginger tea is one of my favorites. The Orange, Additionally the cinnamon, together with the ginger give the tea a noble aroma.

This tea is really something to enjoy with time and calmness. The orange is full of vitamins which will enhance the effect of the ginger. The cinnamon is a natural fat burner and helps you to regulate your blood sugar levels and besides it is known to lower the bad cholesterol LDL in our blood, that means that it is helping to keep our heart healthy and that it is protecting us against strokes and heart attacks.

Additionally, it is good for the flu, cough, it helps against stomach problems, and to stimulate menstruation, but also hemostatic (stops bleeding) in the case of hemorrhoids. So, how to make a ginger tea with cinnamon and orange?

The best of all is its flavor so let’s see how to prepare the tea!

  • Half an orange

Personally, I am not using sugar for the recipes of how to prepare a ginger tea. The reason is because sugar is contradicting and eliminating the positive healthy effects of the ginger. If you want to get in shape or lose belly fat, I strongly recommend you to stay away from sugar and using some honey instead. Even better without both!

  1. I always heard so much things about ginger tea but I’ve never tryed it! Some of my friends say that it can be dangerous and make your heart beat go higher, is this true?
    That Lemon ginger tea seems great I will try it!
    In the supermarket there are ginger roots small and bigger, should I go for how much grams?

    Thank you for all that tea! Great article!

    • Hi Hugo,

      thank you for your comments. Ginger tea is a healing root, it has no stimulating effect on our bodies, it is not like coffee. It is absolutely safe to eat and drink it, not only that, it is recommended to keep you healthy.

      I would go for the roots that have the freshest aspect. You can try the smaller if you are not sure at the beginning, but you really can´t go wrong, because you can use it for so many dishes besides of the tea.

      Thank you and have a great day!

  2. Hi Simon,

    That is awesome! I have ginger tea daily! most days morning (replacing my coffee) and late at night.

    I use a powder made only from freshly ground ginger and not cut ginger slices like you suggest will this have the same effect?

    Thanks for the recipe idea’s might just try ginger and orange/lemon as a variation.

    • Hello Derek,

      thank you very much for your comment! High-quality Ginger powder is produced from the dried ginger root. It is 100% natural and will have exactly the same effect. Additionally it can be stored longer than a fresh root. A great alternative!

      The variations are awesome. Try them, I am sure you will enjoy!

      Thank you and have a great day!

      Simon
