  • About

Ginger tea is a must if you are from Hue or the central region of Vietnam. It’s a custom of the region and so easy to make. Boiling the water with the ginger makes the tea more flavorful and aromatic. Try adding fresh ginger slices to other Asian teas like chrysanthemum and green as well.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups water
  • 5 slices peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons jasmine tea leaves

    Method

    Bring the water and ginger slices to a boil in a saucepan or teakettle. Put the jasmine leaves in a teapot. Pour the boiling water and ginger slices into the teapot. Let steep for at least 5 minutes before serving.
