Fresh ginger root has been used for 1000’s of years to relieve nausea and indigestion.

Fresh ginger tea takes just minutes to make and you can enjoy it plain or with lemon and orange juice. Citrus juices add 5 to 10 calories per serving. Omit honey and juice for a zero calorie beverage.

Cook’s Tip

Adjust the amount of ginger to taste. Dilute ginger tea with water if too strong. Refrigerate leftover tea up to 2 days and reheat in microwave oven.
