This is my all-time favorite tea to drink in the cold months of fall and winter! This hot ginger tea with healing spices will warm you from the inside out while helping to strengthen your immune system.

Ginger Detox Tea Ingredients, Healing Properties and How to Prepare

  • 20 Cardamom Pods (green) – Good for digestions and to detoxify the body through its diuretic properties.
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks – Controls blood sugar levels and is an anti-oxidant – protecting the body against damage from free radicals.
  • 6 inches of Ginger Root (washed and thinly sliced) – Promotes circulation and lowers high blood pressure.
  • 10 Whole Cloves – Warming and soothing for the digestive system (what you need in the winter months) and anti-flatulence properties.
  • 10 Whole Peppercorns – Stimulates digestion and has anti-bacterial properties, keeping the digestive system healthy.
  • 12 cups water
  • Add all spices to a large pot over medium-high heat and allow to boil for ten minutes.
  • Let stand for 20 minutes before straining out spices.
  • You can also keep the spices in as you store the remainder in the refrigerator.

Enjoy Your Ginger Detox Tea in the Present Moment

I like a little bit of stevia or raw local honey (strengthens the immune system if you have allergies) and a squeeze of fresh lemon or orange into the tea helps digestion.

After you've brewed your tea, take a moment to relax and enjoy your healing ginger tea. Find a place to sit quietly - put on your favorite PJs or sweats, wrap yourself in a warm blanket and get comfortable in whatever place you find.

Take a moment to enjoy the present moment:

  • Observing the beautiful winter landscape out your window.
  • Start that book you’ve been wanting to read.
  • Journal
  • Meditate

Choose whatever speaks to your heart and what nourishes you at this time of year.
