How To-50: "How to Make Fresh Green Ginger Tea"

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Ever wanted to make a tea that is both refreshing and has health benefits? This tea contains the benefits of anti-oxidants from green tea with the health benefits and warming effects of ginger. It's a fabulous combination and is perfect hot for a winter's day and iced to quell summer's heat.


  • Green tea bags
  • Ginger
  • Water


  1. Peel the ginger and slice it thinly, in small pieces.
  2. Boil the water.
  3. Select a method. There are three ways to perform the next step - the method will depend on your preference:
    • Pour the boiled water into a teapot that you have already placed the freshly sliced ginger into. Put the lid on the teapot to stop the pot cooling down too quickly and to keep the aromatic ingredients in the tea. Steep for 10 - 15 minutes.
    • If you boil the water in a saucepan rather than in a kettle, you can add the ginger to the saucepan and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Let it sit for 5 minutes before pouring after simmering.
    • Use a teaball to hold the sliced ginger and steep in a cup for 15 minutes. Make sure to use a saucer to cover the top of the cup to prevent the aromatic elements from escaping.

  4. Strain the tea after steeping or boiling and serve. Add sweeteners or flavour if desired.
  5. Make the green tea in another pot.
  6. Pour both of the teas into one pot capable of holding two cups of water.


  • The tea may taste a little bitter until you are used to it. Add a little more ginger if needed.


  • Do not add too much sugar or you will undo the health restoring benefits of the drink.

Things You'll Need

  • A pot that can hold up to at least 5 cups of water
  • Saucepan
