  • Pour the ginger tea into a glass or a cup.
  • Consume it during cold for relief and best results.


  • Consume this tea at least 2 times daily until one finds relief from swollen throat and cold.
  • Honey too can be added to this drink to make it a bit sweeter and consumable.

  • Hence, try to use fresh grated ginger.
