Ginger Root Herbal Tea - Zingiber Officinale
We are all well acquainted with our knobbly old friend the ginger root. It is beloved for its tart and zesty zing, as well as its warm and fiery kick. It is unsurprising then, this powerhouse of flavour also makes for a wonderful herbal tea infusion.
Indigeinous to southern China and traded around Europe as early as the ancient Romans, ginger has become a staple in almost every cuisine around the world. During its earlier days it was highly prized, especially in the west where the dried root (like in this tea) was the only way to access it without it spoiling on the long trade route caravans
During its long history is has acquired an almost ludicrously long list of supposed health benefits, ranging from aiding digestion, reducing nausea, and helps fight the flu and common cold - just to name a few. There is now a great deal of scientific evidence to support these ancient claims thanks to ginernol, the active ingredient which has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
