  • 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!
