What is Ginger Herbal Tea?
Ginger is the rhizome (the underground stem) of the plant Zingiber officinale, which includes other notable family members such as turmeric, cardamom, and galangal. It’s often consumed on its own as a culinary delicacy or used as a fragrant spice in cooking a variety of dishes from savory to sweet. It’s also known historically as a medicinal plant for its potential health benefits.
A tea blend infused with the goodness of freshness of ginger. Ginger tea’s heating qualities make it useful for treating Vata imbalances, such as digestive issues, because it improves all three phases of gastrointestinal function (digestion, absorption, and elimination).
During cool weather, sip ginger tea throughout the day. During warmer weather, try a cup in the morning or before a meal. Ginger intensifies Agni (digestive fire) so the Kapha dosha may find drinking ginger tea—2 to 3 cups daily, especially before meals—useful to help stimulate slow digestion and sharpen dull taste buds.
Ginger tea can slightly increase Pitta dosha, so avoid drinking large amounts if your Pitta is out of balance.
