GingerTeaGinger Tea Treat yourself to a cup of piping hot ginger tea, a healthy drink that's great for digestion.


  • 4-6 thin slices raw Ginger, or more
  • 1 ½-2 cups Water
  • Juice from ½ Lime, or to taste (optional)

  2. This will help you make a very flavourful ginger tea.

  5. Remove from heat and add lime juice and honey or sugar to taste.
