What Are The Benefits of Ginger Water?

Since this isn’t a health site, I’ll go with the known items about ginger. It’s a terrific source of nutrients and besides that, it tastes GREAT!

How Do I Know If Ginger is Fresh?

Look at the knob, does it seem plump and without wrinkles? That is a sign of freshness.

Do I Wash the Ginger Before Putting It In The Water?

Because you will be peeling the ginger, there is no need to wash it first unless you see physical dirt on the ginger.

Can I Eat the Ginger Out of the Infused Water?

You can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s pretty strong to bite into.

How Long Can The Ginger Stay In The Water?

Remove the ginger after 4 hours. The water will last for a few days in the fridge.

When in Amsterdam on a cold day, I stopped in a tea shop and ordered hot ginger tea. The ginger was sliced long and thin and steeped in hot water. Delicious. I’ll have to send you a picture. My friend had hot mint tea. Just a whole wad of mint in boiling water.

These flavored waters are interesting. There's no sweetness really to them, or very little. Kind of an acquired taste, to be sure. But I know from drinking the waters that the stylists make in Sandy's salon that they can be quite good and a little addicting!
