Rosemary and Ginger Tea

Photo by Polina Tankilevitch on

Most of the people who used to come to my house (when I had one) would have been offered tea. Here’s one of my favorites to offer and make.

Technically this tea is called a herbal infusion rather than tea, but it is still enjoyed in the same way.

I wish to say you’ll need a tea strainer/steeper for this.

How to make Ginger and Rosemary Tea


I tbsp of fresh rosemary

1/2 tbsp of freshly grated ginger

Honey/sugar (optional, but I don’t recommend not adding some sweetener.)


Place the rosemary and ginger in a tea strainer/steeper.

Bring the water to boil, 190 degrees Fareinheight

Place the steeper into a cup of your choice and pour the water over it.

Let the tea steep for three minutes. (Don’t steep for longer than this, or the tea will become bitter.)

Remove the steeper, and sweeten with sugar or honey.


You can reuse the ingredients for up to two more cups of tea.

Don’t drink more than two cups of rosemary tea as it has been proven to thin the blood.

Drink it in the morning or afternoon.

If you drink too much, you might have a bowel movement.
