ugandian ginger tea


One of the fiction stories I’m writing takes place in Uganda. I decided to check out Ugandan recipes, and that is how I stumbled upon this delightful tea recipe. The ginger is what makes this tea amazing. It is a soothing tea with the creamy milk. You can make it with fresh ginger or with powdered ginger. For the black tea, I used loose leaf English breakfast, but you can use any kind of black tea you’d like. Now that it’s FINALLY  getting cold outside, this tea will help warm you up! Enjoy!

If you use loose leaf tea, you may need to strain the solids from the liquid like I had to (see all the tea leaves floating in the tea)




2 cups 1 %, 2 %, or whole milk

2 tablespoons loose black tea or 2 tea bags of loose black tea

2 tablespoons sugar

1 inch piece fresh ginger (peeled and washed) or 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered ginger


Combine the milk, tea, and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Once the tea mix begins to boil, add the ginger.

Reduce the heat, and let the tea simmer for 2-3 minutes.
