9 Bites of Conversation So Far

  1. Funny – I am not a “tea person” either. But – I love ginger tea! I am in the habit of having a cup each afternoon. With a couple drops of orange stevia in it.
    I appreciate this ginger series!

  2. I am a big tea drinker. I can’t say I’ve tried ginger tea though yet. I’m liking the health benefits. Great post!

  3. Haha, I’m sitting here drinking ginger tea! I love to add coconut oil to it as well. For a cold, instead of making it stronger (gives me a headache if too strong), I add cayenne pepper for the heat kick I need against the cold, which of course is another anti-inflamm. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip on using frozen slices to make tea!

  4. I have been steeping my ginger slices with a couple broken sticks of cinnamon. Super yummy! I also found if I steep it too long and find it a bit spicy, I just dilute it with some more hot water and then there is more to go around! (Am I the only Mom whose kids want to drink what she’s drinking? 🙂 )

  5. I like to cold brew loose tea….and then keep it in the fridge to drink as “iced tea”. Is there a purpose behind boiling the water for ginger tea, or could I cold brew (using grated ginger in a french press). Thanks!

  6. Wow! I can’t believe I saw this on Pinterest this morning. I have been drinking ginger tea for several years and make it exactly this way but I add a little honey to it also. The thing that really surprised me was that you mentioned you keep your heat on 61° at night and 64°during the day for the same reasons I do. I turn my heat off at night but I live in southern Nevada so the nights seldom go below 30°. At any rate I have to agree that this tea is one of the best warm-ups ever and it’s so delicious that I drink it often. Just wanted to let you know.

  7. If you store this in the fridge, does the ginger retain its nutritional benefits?
