How to make ginger tea
The ideal is to prepare the ginger tea from one day to the next so that it rests and is impregnated with the ginger, then you can drink it both cold and hot.
You find the ginger bulb in any supermarket and they are not expensive, the kilo is for 2.40 euros/ 65 Rs, and with half a kilo you have to make tea for weeks.
We put water to heat, wash and cut the ginger bulbs into slices depending on the size, it will come out as 20 or 30 slices.
Prick each of the slices with a fork so that once in the water they give off their aroma better. When the water boils, turn off the heat and add the green tea bags and the ginger slices. Cover the container with its lid or aluminum foil.
Let it cool for at least 10 minutes before
taking it, or better an hour, this way the ginger will impregnate the
liquid with its properties.
If you want to take it hot after about 10 minutes, proceed as I say below. Remove the green tea bags, and the pieces of ginger, strain the liquid with the help of a strainer. Add vegetable sweetener or honey if you have a cough or sore throat. The rest of the tea you have left you can keep in a bottle.
