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.


Drinking ginger root tea is one of the ways you can take better care of yourself.  Ginger is beneficial for health and it is not hard to find, neither is it expensive.
