How to prepare a ginger tea
Preparing a ginger drink is simple: just get good organic ginger – which you can find in organic food stores – wash it thoroughly and grate it. Place the ginger in a pot with water (for an average root of 5 cm you will need half a liter of water) and boil over a very low heat for about an hour. Leave to stand for a few minutes, filter and drink your ginger drink. You can sweeten it slightly.
