Fresh ginger tea with orange
There is something so soothing about a cup of warm ginger tea and adding some slices of orange into the mix makes it even better. The perfect pick me up after a long day. And super easy to make!
I’m totally in love with ginger. I find it one of the most rewarding spices out there. Pungent and so versatile. Now of course making a cup of ginger tea is no rocket science. Anyone can do it. It also doesn’t necessarily require a lot of work or a long recipe. So why start this brand new blog with something so simple as this ginger tea?
First of all; I picked it as I am learning the new template and this seemed like a good fit. Secondly; I also believe that good nutrition doesn’t always have to be very complicated. That perfectly simple cup of tea might actually bring you a lot of good things. As I hope this blog with bring you many good things.
Healthy and fun
I think over the course of the last couple of years and especially the last two years the world has gone slightly mad. We all know why so I am not going into that, but while food has never been straightforward, it has become more complicated it seems in the recent years. The importance of increasing your immune system has never been greater. But it also put a strain on food. Where food used to be fun, it has become mostly complicated. Vegan, paleo, keto, gluten, no gluten, dairy, no dairy. So many rules and so little clarity.
I don’t pretend to know all the answers (although I did do quite a few studies on nutrition and have my degree in it as well) but I do believe that nutrition is highly personal. So instead of telling you what to eat and when to eat it I will give you options. And information to help you make the decision on what is right for you. For you personally.
Because what is right for you, might not be right for me and vice versa. And so I start with this utterly simple recipe for a cup of ginger tea. To keep things simple. Enjoy and please come back for more soon!
Ginger tea with oranges
- 1 pcs ginger about 5 cm, in thin slices
- 1 orange in slices or quarters
- 400 ml hot water
- honey optional
- Making this ginger tea is easiest if you prick the slices of ginger and the oranges on a small wooden stick. It prevents them floating around your glass and can easily be removed.
- Make sure the water is piping hot when adding to the glass and soak the ginger and orange in it for 5 minutes before drinking.
- Squeeze some of the orange so the juice will get into the tea.
