- 2- 4 ounces (56.7g-113.4g) fresh ginger root, about 1 cup chopped peeled ginger
- 1 star anise
- 3-4 cracked cardamon (I used the green ones that in a pod)
- 3-4 cinnamon sticks
- 6- 8 cups (1422ml-1896ml) water, adjust to desired strength, with more or less
- ½ cup (125ml) lemon juice, or more to taste
- 2 large lemons, sliced (optional)
- Add ginger, star anise, cardamon, and cinnamon sticks to a medium pot.
- Pour in water and place on the stove over medium-high heat.
- As soon as the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook for about 5-10 minutes. The longer you cook, the stronger the ginger tea is.
- Adjust the cooking times as needed. Taste as it simmers and add more water if needed.
- Turn the stove off, remove the pot. Sieve the ginger tea using a fine sieve or cheesecloth over a large bowl or teacup or mug. Discard the remaining ingredients. Add lemon juice, start with a 1/4 cup and adjust with more, as needed to suit taste buds.
- Top with lemon slices and sweetener, if desired.
- Serve hot. Enjoy!
Tips & Notes:
- You may use a sweetener if you want a hint of sweetness in your tea.
- The longer you boil the tea mixture, the stronger the ginger tea is.
- Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
