How to make the perfect cuppa cinnamon-ginger tea

Ginger’s fragrance is warm and spicy and is used in traditional medicine to treat colds, fevers, loss of appetite, nausea, inflammation and genito-urinary and lung infections. It is also known to protect the liver. In addition, ginger is a stimulant and aphrodisiac.

   Cinnamon is also warm and spicy with a bit of sweetness. It is thought to be an aphrodisiac that relieves tension and invigorates the senses. Cinnamon is a perfect complement to ginger tea.

Let’s try it:

  1. Add 3 cups of cold water to a saucepan and heat on high
  2. Peel fresh ginger root and slice thin. (I used about 1/4 cup)
  3. Add 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon or 1 whole cinnamon stick to water
  4. Add ginger to water.
  5. Bring mixture to a boil.
  6. Cover the pan and remove from heat.
  7. Let the tea sit for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Strain and pour into your favorite tea-cup. Sip while reading a good book!
