Fresh ginger has the taste “rasa” of pungent and it is heating in nature with a sweet after taste. The consumption of ginger stimulates the digestive fire “Agni” and our appetites, and improves absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body while scrapping away-undigested food in our system, called “Ama”. Being a powerful anti-inflammatory it reduces joint pain and aching muscles and also keeping the sinuses clear, relieves nausea, gas and stomach cramps.
Pot for boiling water
Pot, French press or thermos

Sweetener to taste (I use 1-3 pinches of stevia herb)
Peel and then grate or slice the ginger very thin (I prefer grated)

If you are using a thermos then as you drink the tea you can replenish the water during the day.
