Why You Should Drink Ginger Tea
I have a cup of ginger tea every morning and and I try to have another cup before going to bed.
Drinking Ginger Tea
When I am drinking ginger tea, I use the ginger root. I try my best to purchase the ginger at an organic store since I will be boiling the root for drinking. I crush the root, wash then place in a pot until the smell of fresh ginger fills the room. Then I pour a cup without sugar and have that first thing in the morning. Now I have to warn you, this is not for sissies….lolrotf…without sugar and straight up ginger, it is an acquired taste. I try to drink at least 2 cups per day if I can.
