Give yourself some lift of mood with this soothing and relaxing ginger green tea that is made in just 5-minutes and it is just so healthy and good for sore throat and body pain!
Green ginger tea is a variety of green tea mixed with ginger root. It is made with grated ginger, green tea leaves, lemon, and honey.
What makes this tea even more special is that you can make minor changes and keep it interesting all the time.
Peel ginger and crush it with a metal pounder or pestle. I find it easiest to do. Alternatively, you can grate the ginger.
Boil water with ginger and cinnamon. (Pro tip: You can add more spices like cardamom, turmeric, fennel, and mint also at this stage.)
Let the water come to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes until the color of the water changes slightly and the spices have released their flavors.
When the color changes add the green tea and cover the pot. (Protip: If using any sweetener other than honey like sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, stevia, or jaggery add it now.)
Turn off the heat and steep for 3-4 minutes. Strain and serve hot.
Add honey after serving. Add lemon. You can add more or less lemon to taste or skip it too if you have a sore throat.
