Homemade Fresh Ginger Tea is soothing and healing, especially during cold and flu season. Also good for nausea and to aid digestion. In the Philippines, it is called Salabat.
- 6 cups water
- 4 oz fresh ginger, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces (about 5 inch piece)
- 1/4 cup honey (or sugar)
Combine the water, ginger, and honey in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the honey.
Lower heat, cover, and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
Strain and transfer the tea into a teapot or your preferred container. Enjoy immediately, with a slice of lemon and additional honey to taste.
Chill any remaining ginger tea and store in the refrigerator -- you can drink it chilled or reheat before serving.
