  • Total Time: 8-10 mins
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


Indulge in the soothing warmth of homemade Fresh Ginger Tea, a natural elixir with health benefits.


  • 1-inch chunk of fresh ginger, peel intact
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional: 1 cinnamon stick, 1 piece of fresh turmeric, or 3-4 springs of mint (choose one)
  • Optional additions: Sliced lemon, sliced oranges, honey, or maple syrup


  • Prepare the Water: Place one cup of water in a saucepan and heat it on medium-high heat. This is the foundation of your tea.
  • Prep the Ginger: While the water is heating, slice the fresh ginger into thin pieces. Keep the peel intact for a robust flavor.
  • Add Flavorings (Optional): If you want to enhance the tea with additional flavors, choose one from the options – cinnamon stick, fresh turmeric, or mint. This step adds complexity and depth to the tea.
  • Boil and Steep: Bring the water to a boil and add the sliced ginger (and optional flavorings). Allow it to steep for 4-5 minutes. This is where the magic happens, as the flavors meld together.
  • Serve: Pour the tea into a mug or mason jar. This can be enjoyed immediately or stored for later.
  • Sweeten and Garnish: Add honey, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness. Enhance the presentation and flavor by adding sliced lemon or oranges.
