Fresh Ginger Iced Tea For Summer

Apart from all of the best benefits of ginger listed above, ginger also helps improve digestion, speeds up the metabolism, and soothes an upset stomach. This ginger iced tea can be consumed both in summer and winter as well guy but of course, you will want to heat it up when it’s cold!


  • 1-inch chunk of fresh ginger (no need to peel), sliced into pieces no wider than ¼-inch
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional flavorings (choose just one): 1 cinnamon stick, 1-inch piece of fresh turmeric (cut into thin slices, same as the ginger), or several sprigs of fresh mint
  • Optional add-ins: 1 thin round of fresh lemon or orange, and/or 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup, to taste


  1. Combine the sliced ginger and water in a saucepan over high heat. If you’re adding a cinnamon stick, fresh turmeric, or fresh mint, add it now. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer for 5 minutes (for extra-strong ginger flavor, simmer for up to 10 minutes).
  2. Remove the pot from the heat. Carefully pour the mixture through a mesh sieve into a heat-safe liquid measuring cup, or directly into a mug.
  3. If desired, serve with a lemon round and/or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, to taste. Serve hot.
