4 Easy Rosemary Tea Recipes and How to Make


Rosemary is a member of the mint family. This herb has a good source of fiber, iron and contains antioxidants: carnosic acid and carnosol. Rosemary also contains many phytochemicals like rosmarinic acid, camphor, caffeic acid, ursolic acid, and betulinic acid. Rosemary’s natural chemicals act as stimulants to support your memory. You can use rosemary tea as an herbal remedy to support the brain. The rosemary is also mood enhancing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and stimulating. We will discuss the health benefits and the side effect of rosemary later. But today I want to share with you 4 healthy rosemary tea recipes I have collected. These recipes are delicious, easy and take short time to brew within five to ten minutes.

Rosemary Tea with Honey


This is the easiest rosemary tea recipes and takes a short time to make. Ingredients you need are for 2 cups of tea:
  • 1 to 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary or 1- 1,5 tsp. of dried rosemary.
  • 3 tsp. of honey
  • 2 cups of boiling water or 500ml of cold tap water if you brew tea in a saucepan.

You need to break the rosemary into small pieces and then you can make rosemary tea with honey in two simple ways. The first way is brewing rosemary as the normal tea. You can put rosemary pieces into boiling water for 8 minutes. As other herbs, rosemary needs a long time steeping. Then you can add some honey and decorate it with some fresh rosemary.

The second ways are boiling or simmering rosemary in the sauce pan for a stronger rosemary taste. You can boil rosemary small pieces with water and honey to slowly boiling. Then when it boiled, reduce the heat and simmer for five minutes. Your rosemary tea is ready after five minutes. If you want stronger rosemary taste you can press the rosemary against the side of the pan to extract the juices.

Rosemary milk tea

Rosemary tea with milk looks nice and tastes very good and refreshing. So what do you need to make one cup of this tea? 
  • 1 cup of milk (250 ml)
  • 1 sprigs of fresh rosemary or 1 tsp. of dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp. of honey
  • And little patience

Break the rosemary into four pieces then put three of the pieces into a saucepan and add the milk. Bring slowly to the boil and reduce the heat to simmer rosemary for five minutes. Simmering the tea will need your patience as you have to stir the milk continuously in five minutes. If you don’t stir the and check it carefully, the heat can burn the milk easily and your rosemary tea will have the smoky taste.

Before serving it you can press the rosemary against the side for stronger tea taste. Then strain the drink and discard the rosemary and decorated with the reserved rosemary floating on top. The rosemary tea with milk can bring you lots of energy and refresh you after a hard working day. You can also make it in the morning too but maybe I do not do that. Instead of that, I would love to have a cup of hot milk with 1 or 2 tsp. of honey. Hot milk with honey also can energize and wake up you. This hot drink might be better than a cup of coffee if you have sleepless or bad sleeping night.   

Rosemary, ginger, and lemon peels

  • 1 small bunch of rosemary
  • 1 inch of ginger, you can slice ginger into small pieces or press it if you like a stronger ginger taste.
  • Peels of ½ lemon (I zest the yellow part of lemon peel to make tea as it contains many antioxidant ingredients.)
  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 2 tsp. of honey


With teapot, you can put all ingredients in the same time and brew with boiling water 8 minutes. If you need stronger taste you also can boil it in a sauce pan and simmer it for 6 minutes as it is an ideal time to brew ginger. Strain the tea and add more honey if you like sweeter herbal tea.This herbal tea formula is good as all ingredients contain rich sources of antioxidant and vital minerals. The tea also can release cold, flu-like symptoms, bronchitis and clear phlegm.


Mediterranean Rosemary tea with thyme, sage, cinnamon and honey

This original recipe is the Mediterranean wine recipe but I change it into the nonalcoholic recipe. I hope you like it as I do. Ingredients for a cup of rosemary tea are:
  • 500 ml of cold tap water (2 cups)
  • 2 large sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp. of sage
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 cinnamon bark or ½ tsp. of cinnamon ground
  • 2 tsp. of honey

Boil the water until boiling and put all ingredients into a saucepan. Then simmer all ingredients over low heat for 8 minutes. The ingredients in this Mediterranean herbal tea recipe contain rich sources of antioxidant and minerals. This tea can help you to fight with cold, flu or keep you warm. Moreover, this herbal rosemary tea also can reduce the pain as ginger and rosemary work well with reducing the pain. Daily ginger consumption can reduce muscle pain caused by exercise. Besides it provides you many antioxidants and boosts your immune systems. 

In the picture, I used cinnamon ground which creates the red color. The tea color might change into brown when you use cinnamon bark. The tea color will look alike the hot fig tea with herbs. The recipe will have a quite strong cinnamon taste. You can reduce the cinnamon to 1/3 of tsp. or ½ barks if you like stronger rosemary taste. 

Here are how I make 4 lovely and healthy rosemary tea recipes in this spring. They are easy to brew with normal and available herbs and ingredients. Within 5 to 10 minutes you will have tasty and healthy herbal tea. You can use these herbal recipes if you don’t know what to do with your rosemary left after cooking.

Ginger Health Benefits and Side Effects


Ginger is one of the most popular spices and herbal medicine in all over the world. For thousand years ago, ginger has been used to treat the common cold, flu-like symptoms, headaches, aid digestion and painful menstrual periods. Besides ginger can help reduce nausea, vomiting, relieve nausea in cancer patients who are having chemotherapy. It is also promoted for arthritis or joint and muscle pain. With me, ginger is one of my favorite spice and drink’s ingredients. I love cooking fish, chicken, beef with ginger and make some ginger drinks in cold days to keep me warm or reduce cold’s symptoms. Today I would love to share with you what I know about health benefits of ginger; side effects and how I use it in my daily life.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF GINGER:

Home remedy for cold and flu-like symptoms

Ginger is a great ideal for treating cold and flu-like symptoms. This spice can make your body warmer and reduce the cold symptoms. I always keep some fresh ginger in a fridge in case I got a cold suddenly. Ginger also gets on well with lemon, honey, and mint leaves. And here the way I usually make a ginger honey drink when I got a cold.
All you need is 2 gram of fresh ginger and honey. You can press or chop ginger into small pieces. But with me, I prefer pressing ginger more than cutting it into small pieces. By pressing ginger we can take more water and nutrient from ginger than cutting. After that, you can put pressed ginger or cut ginger into a cup with 1 or 2 tsp. of honey. Depend on your taste, you can put more or reduce the honey. Pour 150-200 ml of fresh boiling water over it. Wait for 5 -7 minutes you can enjoy your ginger honey tea.
Having 2 cups of ginger honey tea in a day can reduce the cold symptom and support the cold medicine. Besides, the ginger honey drink also can help to reduce muscle pain caused by exercises.

Natural remedies for muscle pain

Several types of research of the University of Georgia have found that daily ginger consumption can also reduce muscle pain caused by exercise. In a research, 30-40 volunteers consume 2 gram of raw ginger or heated ginger for 11 consecutive days. On the eight days of research, volunteers performed 18 extensions of the elbow flexors with heavy weight to induce moderate muscle injury to the arm. Three days after the exercise, doctors assessed prior volunteer’s arm functions, inflammation, pain and a biochemical involved in pain. The research found that ginger supplementation reduced the exercise-induced pain by 25 percent. Besides, the research also found that the heat-treating ginger like cooking ginger could not reduce the pain as the raw ginger. So that is a good new that you can use ginger as natural remedies for releasing the pain in exercise. You can eat or drink 2 gram of fresh ginger in 11 continuous days to reduce the pain in exercise.

Natural remedies for nausea and vomiting

Ginger has been used as a natural remedy for nausea and vomiting for a thousand years ago. This ginger’s health benefit has been proved in some recent clinical studies of using ginger to reduce nausea associated with pregnancy. According to these research, ginger has proved the help to reduce morning nausea if pregnant women use 1g daily of ginger in short period no longer than 4 days. If you want to use ginger as a home remedy for nausea and vomiting during your pregnancy, you should ask your doctor before taking it. Pregnant women do not take more than 1 gram of ginger per day.
A few studies also suggest that ginger reduces the severity and duration of nausea – but not vomiting during chemotherapy. However, there is some disagreement in published studies about the likelihood of this side effect. It is too early to say whether ginger really can reduce nausea during chemotherapy in cancer treatment. People who have cancer should talk to their doctors before taking ginger because ginger has the potential to interfere with blood clotting and prolong bleeding time.

Other applications

Ginger has a long history as an herbal remedy for upset stomach, motion sickness, and loss of appetite and as a pungent spice for cooking. In Asia, ginger has been used to help digestion and treat stomach upset, diarrhea, and nausea for more than 2,000 years. Ginger has also been used to help treat arthritis, colic, diarrhea, and heart conditions.

SIDE EFFECTS OF GINGER

Is ginger good to everybody? The answer is yes but if you use too much ginger it might cause mild heartburn, diarrhea, and irritation of the mouth. And here are some situation people should pay attention when using ginger.
      Don’t use ginger with children under 2-year-olds. Children over 2 may take ginger to treat nausea, stomach cramping, and headaches. But you should ask your doctor to help you find the right dose for the children.

–  Pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with heart conditions, cancer, diabetes, and gallstones should not take ginger without asking doctors.

–  Ginger may interfere with blood clotting and prolong bleeding time like Chamomile. There is a risk of serious bleeding if a person takes blood-thinning medications such as warfarin or medicine which can reduce the level of platelets (blood cells that help the blood to clot) or interfere with platelet function. So do not take ginger if you have the bleeding disorder or using blood-thinning medication and even aspirin. Make sure to tell your doctor if you are taking ginger before surgery or being placed under anesthesia for any reason.

HOW TO USE GINGER?

You can use fresh or dried ginger root in cooking and in preparing herbal remedies. Remember that a maximum amount of ginger adult can take is only 5 gram per day including food sources. And always ask your doctor to help you find the right dose for you.
·        If you use ginger for the treatment of nausea, you can use 250 milligrams to 1 gram of powdered ginger taken with liquid several times per day.
·        For pregnancy-induced vomiting, some studies have used 650 mg to 1 g per day. Pregnant women should not take more than 1g per day. Don’t take ginger without first talking to your doctor.
·        For arthritis pain: You can use 2 gram of ginger daily for 11 continuous days to reduce the pain.

With me, ginger is my favorite home remedy for cold and flu-like symptoms. One cup of ginger honey is not a bad choice to reduce the cold and support the cold medicine. Besides, you can combine ginger with the mint leaves, lemon and honey to make tasty and healthy drinks for cold days. In the coming posts, I will discuss more fresh ginger mint tea and how to mix ginger with other ingredients.
