The Chinese think that if you leave the skin of the ginger on when you boil it, the tea is also good for relieving headaches. And when I was younger, I was given ginger tea when I had stomach aches/gas.

There is an even easier recipe for ginger tea than the one listed. Cut two rounds of ginger about the size of a quarter each. Put them in a mug and pour about 1 c. of boiling water over them. Cover the mug, so that all the good medicine stays in the cup. Drink after it has set for about 20 minutes. Especially if the person is nauseous, have them sip it slowly a little at a time. ENJOY!

Delicious Ginger Tea:

1 cup boiling water;
4-1/8 inch slices of fresh ginger;
1 sm sprig fresh rosemary or fresh mint, or two strips lemon peel (only peel don't get white pithy stuff);
1/2 tsp honey;....

In mug, Pour boiling water over fresh ginger, rosemary, and honey. Steep for 5 minutes. Remove rosemary and ginger, or leave in for intense flavor while sipping....

For Sparkling Iced Tea:
Change amount of ginger to 6 slices.
All else the same.
Cover and put in fridge for 2 hours.
Then pour in ice filled glass.
Add calorie free ginger ale, carbonated water or sparkling white wine
