Wedang Jahe, Ginger Tea


Wedang Jahe 
Indonesian Ginger Tea


  • 250 g gingerroots (never substituted for ginger powder, it will ruin the taste)
  • 1 cinnamon sticks
  • 1-2 pandan leaves, knotted
  • coconut or palm sugar as desired (you can use a half percentage of raw sugar and coconut/palm sugar)

1.  Crush or smash ginger with flat part of a cleaver or large knife’s blade until the skin splits and the inner flesh is exposed.

2.  In a large pot, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. The longer you simmer, the stronger the ginger tea.

Indonesia Eats Note:
Indonesians also love to add lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and cloves as well to this wedang jahe.
