  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger root (thoroughly washed)
  • 2 cups of water (filtered)
  • 1 tsp rosemary (optional)
  • 1 tsp honey (optional, for flavor)


  • To make fresh ginger root tea, slice the fresh ginger root thinly, into 5-6 slices
  • Add the ginger and water to a saucepan and bring the water up to a boil. If desired, you can add the rosemary at this point for extra spice.
  • Once the water reaches a boil, bring it back down to a simmer and allow it to cook for approximately 10 minutes. Wait until the water is a dark, rich color and smells strongly of ginger.
  • Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • Strain into a teacup (or pitcher for larger batches), add honey (if desired) and enjoy!
