Loose leaf ginger tea is powerful stuff!
Due to its fragrant, sharp taste and its many health benefits,
people have been using ginger for thousands of years–
both to flavor foods and as an important part of herbal medicine.
To Start, What Is Ginger?
If you were wondering, ginger is a spicy, aromatic root that grows in pale, lumpy bulbs. Although it’s not the most attractive spice, it definitely is super awesome!
Additionally, ginger actually comes from the same plant family as both turmeric and cardamom, all powerhouse spices in their own right, with a wide variety of health benefits.
Most likely, ginger originated in the warmer climates of southern Asia. But now, it’s grown in parts of South America and Africa, as well.
