Ginger Tea

Eddie is at home (sick) today.  His immune system gets more challenged than ours, probably because he gets exposed to more sickness at school,  and  I think because we have a little more discipline in eating healthier than he does (in the past there were many things he would not eat, and he's has had to overcome many food phobias... I talked a little about those issues here and here).  He has gotten more open minded about food and he does like, "Ginger Tea", Lemon and Honey and Umka Cold Care.  So when he is sick, I pump him with those and vitamin C, Vitamin D, .  He pops back to feeling better pretty quick that way.   Here's how we like to make our ginger tea:

 Cut a nice piece of ginger.


Grate it with the small side of a cheese grater.  Some people like to slice it, and that is a good option, but I like to get more juice and flavor out of it, so I grate it.

Put it in a mesh tea infuser.


Fill it according to how much ginger you want to infuse.


 Put it in the tea pot with anything else you like... I like it with black tea... some of you may like to steep it with cinnamon,  mint,  green tea, or camomile.. etc.  Pour hot water in and Cover with a tea cozy to steep about 10 minutes (the longer it steeps, the stronger the ginger).


I like mine unsweetened, but if we have a little bug like Eddie does today, I will add lemon and honey....This is a little of that Honey and Lemon "Cold Remedy" I made a couple of weeks ago; it is perfect for adding to tea... you can add just the lemon flavored honey,

or a few chunks of lemon with the honey.








Mmmmm

If I don't happen to have any fresh ginger on hand... these are good too.




Enjoy

  1. This looks lovely! I can just imagine it being so soothing and comforting if you were under the weather.

    My only trouble with hot ginger drinks is that I cannot dis-associate them with morning sickness, which I had for 9 months all four times! I tried drinking ginger teas in an attempt to ward off the nausea, but nothing I tried worked. Now even the smallest sip of a warm ginger drink brings all those feelings back to mind!

    Still, your lovely photos have tempted me to try again :0)

  2. I know what you mean Kirsteen, I wore a suede jacket when I was pregnant with my first (during the first trimester I had morning sickness...not all the way through like you), and the smell of suede makes me feel a little nauseous to this day because of the connection... its funny how that works.

  3. Well, I don't have a bug or a cold and this sounds so good. I just love how all your pictures look so beautiful and inviting. I will be praying for Eddie and also for protection for you and Steve that you both don't end up with the yucks too.
    Love you Pam!

  4. It is so yummy! What did I ever do before I started enjoying Ginger/Cinnamon Tea in the winter? I have never grated my ginger for tea but I think I'll give it a whirl next time. Great idea!

  5. Hello, I hope Eddie is feeling better. I was wondering if you have a post on the honey and cinnamon mix. Now I am just craving that.
    I am so tired today, I will be going to bed early.
    I pray God will give us a huge amount of snow.
    I miss you my friend, pray we can see one another soon.
    Blessings, Roxy

  9. While it is one thing to have a social media profile on an online community like Deviant - ART, it is a whole other thing entirely to have fitted it with an effective SEO strategy.
