The history of ginger
Ginger, native to Southeast Asia, has a long and rich history. It was exported to Rome early on and became an important product in Europe in the Middle Ages, mainly because of its medicinal properties. It is no wonder then that ginger has found its way into so many cultures and cuisines over the centuries.
Making the perfect ginger tea: A comprehensive step-by-step plan
ingredients: Choose a fresh ginger root that is firm to the touch and smooth. Lemon and honey are optional, but add a delicate flavour nuance.
Preparation: Wash the ginger root well. There is no need to peel the ginger, but if you prefer, you can lightly scrape the peel with a spoon.
- Slice: Slice the ginger into thin slices. The thinner the slices, the more intense the flavour.
- Boil water: Bring water to the boil in a kettle or pan.
- Make tea: Put the ginger slices in a teapot and pour the boiling water over them. Let it steep for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the desired strength.
- Add extras: If you like, add a dash of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey.
- Serving: Pour the tea into a cup and enjoy!
