Invigorating Ginger Tea

ginger root teaGinger is all about invigoration. Feeling heavy, sluggish or congested? Sip ginger root tea and restore balance to the body.

Need a quick way to calm heartburn or reflux? Ginger tea helps stimulate digestion by speeding up gastric emptying and stimulating colon function—but not too much.

A powerful cleansing drink, ginger root can help destagnate the liver to mobilize toxins. Plus, ginger helps diminish cravings for sweet and fatty foods that can cause the liver to stagnate in the first place.

Or maybe, like me, you just love the reviving, energizing taste of ginger. Amazingly simple to make, maximize balance and well-being by drinking 2-3 cups of delicious ginger tea daily.
Yields 4 cups

Ingredients
2-inch chunk of fresh ginger
4 cups of pure filtered or spring water

Preparation

1. Chop the unpeeled 2-inch piece of whole ginger into coarse pieces.
2. Place in a 2-3 quart stock pot with quart of pure water. Bring to a boil
3. Reduce the heat, allowing the tea to simmer for 15 minutes.
4. Pour tea through a strainer to remove the ginger chunks.
5. Serve or store in a thermos bottle or glass jar.

Variations
Lemon garnish is amazing. Tastes wonderful served iced. Ginger is very warming, though, so the person who is often “over hot” will not enjoy the iced summer version as much.
