Simple Ginger Tea: Quick, Easy &To Go

Ginger-Tea-to-go

I have noticed that if I drink ginger tea throughout the day on a regular basis I feel better. Ginger is a warming digestive and is the perfect medicine during the cold season. Drinking ginger tea throughout the day prevents internal stagnation.  It’s like a light detoxifier supporting digestion and elimination while supporting the immune system.  A cup or tow of  ginger tea a day, can help prevent colds and congestion as well.  It’s the perfect kitchen remedy.

During the winter months, a daily dose of this simple ginger tea  or even when I’m stuck in a cold, air-conditioned room for a long period of time, has served as a nice and tasty preventative elixir. It’s light, quick, easy and not too strong so it can be sipped though the day or combined with other herbal teas. I like to think of it like a warm, homemade vitamin water. All you need is a few slices of ginger—fits perfectly in a purse, computer bag or even in the back pocket!
