A flavourful adventure: how ginger tea is made
Sourced from the finest ginger roots, this aromatic brew carries a spicy kick and a comforting warmth that will awaken your senses.
Discover the fascinating process behind the creation of ginger tea. From the harvest of ginger roots to the delicate preparation, grinding and packing, this aromatic beverage takes you on a sensory journey like no other.
Learn about the artful techniques and traditional methods that transform ginger into a warm, invigorating cup of tea, brimming with natural goodness and a soothing touch.
The first crucial step in crafting ginger tea begins with carefully selecting the finest ginger roots. Farmers meticulously tend to ginger plants, allowing them to mature to perfection. When the time is right, the ginger roots are gently unearthed, preserving their freshness and flavour.
Cleaning and preparing
Once harvested, the ginger roots undergo a thorough cleaning process. They are gently washed and scrubbed to remove any dirt or impurities, ensuring a pure and pristine ingredient for the tea. After cleaning, the ginger roots are sliced or grated, allowing their natural oils and flavours to infuse seamlessly into the hot water.
After the ginger roots have been cleaned and prepared, they are finely ground into a fragrant powder using traditional techniques honed over generations. This grinding process unlocks the full depth of ginger's flavours and releases its aromatic oils, creating a vibrant and captivating ginger powder.
Packing and storing
Once the ginger powder reaches its desired consistency, it is carefully packed to preserve its freshness and potency. Ginger tea producers understand the importance of protecting ginger powder's delicate flavours and beneficial properties. To achieve this, the powder undergoes vacuum packing to remove excess air.
Proper storage is vital to maintain the quality of ginger tea. The airtight containers of ginger powder must be stored in cool, dry environments, shielded from direct sunlight and moisture, to ensure that the ginger powder retains its full flavour and vibrant aroma, ready to be enjoyed with every cup of ginger tea.
How to make ginger tea
Brewing tea is a delightful ritual that infuses your cup with a burst of flavour and relaxation. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make ginger tea:
- Begin by bringing a pot of water to a gentle boil.
- Put the teabag into the mug or pot. If you’re using loose leaf ginger tea, add a teaspoon to the infuser, then put the infuser into your mug or pot of boiling water.
- Let it steep for about 3-5 minutes.
- Allow the heat to extract the spicy and aromatic flavours of ginger tea.
- Once the tea has brewed to your desired strength, strain it into a cup.
- For an extra zing, add a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of honey.
- Sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing properties of ginger tea.
