How to make ginger tea

Chinese drink ginger tea as a health tonic. Ginger tea can be considered as a herbal tea, effective for alleviating stomach gas, bloating, common cold and nausea. It also helps indigestion. Ginger tea is very easy to make. You can drink ginger tea either hot or cold, or at room temperature.

Ginger is a very popular ingredient in Asian cuisines, especially to the Chinese. Ginger is used as health tonic for post-natal care. For the Chinese, all the food prepared for post-natal confinement mothers are stashed with ginger. The most potent effect in ginger is its ability to dispel stomach gas and reduce bloating. Ginger is also used as an odor neutralizer. In Chinese cooking, whenever it involves fish, ginger is a compulsory ingredient. Ginger neutralizes the fishy smell in any dish. For more information on ginger, please read my article “Benefits of ginger”.

As we know, we literally cannot eat ginger on its own. That’s why there are many types of ginger candies on the Asian markets. You can see a photo of two types of ginger candy in my article “Benefits of ginger”.
