Traditional Ginger Tea

Postby e3nity » Wed Mar 30, 2011 10:03 am

I often patron Javanese massage and like the taste of the ginger tea served after the massage.. For parents who share the same taste.. This is how you can do it at hme

What you need?
1. Gula Meleka (those sold in NTUC, 1 packet have about 6 small pieces compared to the standard 2 big pieces)
2. Young Ginger 1 stem
3. Old Ginger 1 Stem

How to do it?
1. Fill up a pot of water and boil it
2. When the water is boiled, put in 1 pcs (small) of gula meleka
3. Add in the Ginger w/o the skin
4. Boil for a about 15minutes or till gula meleka is dissolved
5. Remove the Ginger and smash it before putting it back to the pot to boil further for 5-10 minutes.
6. Taste if it is spicy enough if not you can repeat step 3 & 5..

Enjoy ur Ginger Tea.. 8)

No worries about hot sensation. Am used to spicy stuff. Been taking quite a lot of painkillers as I am plagued by migraine since last week. To keep gastric at bay gotta take antacids so lead to bloatedness. To ease the bloatedness, and to some extent nausea, been munching on ginger. Talk about chain reaction. :P

So a piping hot cup of ginger tea sounds sooo comforting.

Thanks for sharing, e3nity. I love ginger tea. One of the spas I patronize also serves ginger tea and I had also asked them for their recipe. Everything similar except they use rock sugar instead of gula melaka. Mmm, divine. :love:

I brew my own ginger tea too. Depending on what I have, I use rock sugar or gula melaka or even honey.

For added health benefits, you can also add in a stick of cinnamon when u boil the ginger. The spice helps to manage our blood sugar level and it's been known to have anti-bacterial and immune supportive properties. It's especially good for our gut. So, everytime I drink my ginger and cinnamon spiced tea, I... uh... imagine them fighting against the bacteria in my gut. :wink:
