Wow! Sometimes I have a hard time believing how insanely powerful this ginger tea can be with cinnamon added. 

Making ginger tea at home is also insanely easy. It takes me less than an hour on the weekend, and I can store anything I don’t drink in the fridge for a quick cup during the week.

Start by cutting about an inch-long piece of ginger off the root and peeling it. Then chop it into coins and place in a pot with about 2 cups of water. Add in the cinnamon stick.

Bring the water to a boil and then turn down the heat and let the tea simmer for about 20 mins.

Remove from the heat and let cool for about 15 minutes after that. This step is very important, as the cinnamon stick must cool for the nutrients to be extracted.

Filter the tea through a fine mesh or colander to remove the ginger pieces and cinnamon stick. 

At this point, you will have very strong tea, so I usually dilute it by at least half with fresh water before drinking. Whatever I don’t drink right away I pour into a jar and keep in the fridge. I’ve never pushed the limits on how long it will keep, but I know it stays good for at least 2 weeks.

If you want your tea to be a little sweeter, you can add some raw honey to it while it’s hot.

  • I’ve just started drinking ginger tea. I have a lot of inflammation in my body and I’m hoping this will help. Will ground cinnamon be as effective as a cinnamon stick?
    Dawn

    • Hi Dawn! I think the effectiveness should be the same, however in my experience, it is hard to keep the cinnamon mixed into the tea. It sinks to the bottom pretty fast, so it would all end up left over after drinking. I think the cinnamon stick just makes everything easier. I buy them in the produce section at my grocery store.

      • That makes sense. I’m going to pick some up this week when I go shopping.
