Ginger Tea


Small piece of fresh ginger (about a quarter size)

Sugar or sweetener of choice (without is very good also)

1/2 teaspoon leaf tea (optional)

Serves 1


Begin by peeling and grating the ginger. Place a tea ball or tea strainer in a cup. If you are using tea, add it at this point. Pour boiling water in cup and allow this to steep for 2 to 4 minutes. This last step mentioned depends on how strong you want it. Any type of sweetener may be added. The ginger can be used over to make more cups.

Note: if you don't have a grater, just peel ginger and add to cup.

1 star anise (whole)

sweetener, to your taste

Serves 1

Place the tea bag and star anise into a cup. Sweetener, if using one can be added now. Pour boiling water in cup and let steep for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove tea bag, let cool a bit and drink.

      I agree Madame X. I love teas and the ginger is very soothing to the stomach. The star anise with its licorice flavor is a nice treat too.

      This is a great hub! I'm going to try your Star Anise and your ginger teas. They sound delicious. I've been a tea drinker forever - coffee's ok - but not like tea! The Yerba Mate is also a good one. It seems to balance your energy after a hectic day, or any day.
