Both Ginger and parsley have long been used as traditional medicine to help alleviate a wide variety of ailments. However, the science is still out on the efficacy of many of these claims so I would take them with a grain of salt.
All the benefits are great but they don’t mean much if you can’t stand the taste of the tea. So let’s dive into the flavor profile of ginger parsley tea.
What Does Ginger And Parsley Tea Taste Like?
Ginger parsley tea has a pretty complex flavor profile. You get the best flavors of both of the ingredients without one really overwhelming the other. Let’s take a look at the parsley flavor first.
The Parsley flavor is a savory vegetable, I would classify it as a grassy flavor. The aroma of the parsley is quite pungent but that Aroma is lessened a little bit I think when you start to stay fit.
The taste and smell are roughly the same but the taste is a bit subdued once you start to put it in the hot water with the ginger. I think there’s also a bit of natural sweetness to The Parsley. It has a little bit of a green tea flavor to it but with a much more Savory Edge.
The ginger, on the other hand, brings its unique spicy pepper flavor that it is renowned for. the ginger acts as the foundation or the base for this herbal infusion. I think the earthiness of the ginger root combined with its pungent and spicy flavor really gives this herbal infusion a kick in the pants.
Parsley tea by itself can be a little mundane. It’s flavorful but it’s not overly pungent like the ginger tea would be. So when you blend these two you get a nice balance as long as you keep your measurements in Balance. If you used Too Much Ginger you do run the risk of overwhelming the parsley and vice versa if you use too much parsley.
How To Make Ginger And Parsley Tea
Ginger parsley tea is pretty easy to make. You can make it in a variety of ways using fresh dried or bagged ingredients.
Here is a quick DIY Ginger Parsley Recipe using fresh ingredients
- 2-4 slices of ginger root 1/4 inch thick
