Ginger Tea

Good evening everyone (and morning to those on the other side of the world). Today’s post is from a reader’s suggestion: a small cup of ginger tea after dinner. His name is Manoj Trivedi and is one of my top and favorite regular readers of my blog. Anytime you see his comments, give him a huge shout out 🙂

Benefits of ginger tea after dinner:

  • improve circulation and food digestion
  • open inflamed airways
  • helps with irregular bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • helps the body absorb nutrients

Benefits of ginger tea for preventative health:

  • weight loss and stimulates appetite
  • relieves stress and tired muscles
  • manage glucose levels
  • CLEARS SINUSES FOR ALL SEASONS

We were discussing after dinner healthy treats and one of the ideas he had mentioned was drinking ginger tea with freshly squeezed lemons. Lemons are highly acidic and not to be taken after dinner because it will cause indigestion and high acidity during sleep hours. However, a small amount of minced ginger and couple juice-filled hairs of lime in warm water is better.

In our home, my mom minces the ginger in an ice cube tray. She fills up each space half way up to make sure that once it’s frozen, we can remove the cube and place it in a Ziploc bag for better storage.

Frozen cubes in a bag are also good for cooking too as long as leave it out for 15-20 minutes before using it.

You can see the juice-filled hairs along with minced ginger.

Not too sour or bitter but just the right taste for an ever-changing weather and a semi-hungry stomach. In addition, drinking a full glass of water helps too to reduce acidity at night.

  1. Very interesting indeed. Did not know that ginger could be frozen the way you did. Will start the process. Ginger and lime tea is a good idea. Thanks for sharing.
