I love my Chai but I especially enjoy it on a cold day! It is my favorite pick-me up drink and gives me a quick boost of energy. I love my tea with various spices but there is so much freshness and aroma to the ginger tea.
Ginger aids digestion, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and reduces inflammation which is helpful for people suffering from arthritis. It offers antioxidant support, and some research has also shown that ginger can help fight cancer cells. Ginger is readily available and has a long shelf life. It is one of my must-have ingredients in the refrigerator!
Here is how I make it:
Bring 3/4th cup of water to boil in a small pot.
Add 1 teabag (I love Tetley classic black tea).
Add 1tsp of peeled and grated fresh ginger.
Bring it to boil and simmer for 2 mins.
Add 1/4th cup of skim or low fat milk.
Bring it to boil once more.
Filter using a strainer.
You can add sugar or honey for desired sweetness!
