Ginger Chai Tea Recipe

If you’ve been following my updates on social media, you know that I recently had my first orbital decompression surgery to help correct some of the damage done from Thyroid Eye Disease. It’s a pretty intense surgery and recovery process (I’ll go into more detail in a future post once I’m on the other side of my upcoming procedures). As I’m following all recovery instructions from my doctors and taking my prescribed post-op medications, I’m trying to help my body as much as possible with a variety of nutrients.

I’ve been making fresh ginger tea for years, and it’s my go-to recipe whenever I’m not feeling well. I was looking for a way to spice things up, and my Ginger Chai Tea is now one of my favorite cold weather drinks. Hope you enjoy!

Ginger Chai Tea

For ginger tea:

5 cups water

3 oz peeled fresh ginger, cut into cubes

For chai tea:

1 1/3 cup ginger tea

2/3 cup milk

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/8 tsp vanilla

2 dashes cinnamon

2 dashes nutmeg

Place water and fresh ginger in a pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn the stove off and let the tea sit for two hours. Discard the ginger. Place all chai tea ingredients in a pot. Heat and stir. Add more maple syrup/vanilla/spices to taste and serve.

Makes two cups. Extra ginger tea can be refrigerated for future use.

  1. Jessica,

    So good to read your post. I think of you often. That you have posted this seems to be a sign of better things to come for you. I know that you look forward to a time when all of this pain and suffering will finally be behind you. So sorry!!

    My daughter (the one with Celiac who lives in Manhattan) loves teas like this so I have shared the recipe with her.

    Take care Jessica,
