Low FODMAP Ginger Tea

Low FODMAP Ginger Tea

  • Author: Em Schwartz, MS, RDN
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


Three-ingredient Low FODMAP Ginger Tea – a soothing cup of freshly grated ginger steeped in hot filtered water and sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.


  • 1 tsp. (2 grams) freshly grated ginger
  • 1 ½ cups (355 ml) hot filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp. (20 grams) maple syrup (or to taste)


  1. Place freshly grated ginger in the bottom of a coffee cup. Pour hot water over ginger and let sit for 2-3 minutes or until ginger settles.
  2. Optional step – Strain when desired ginger flavor strength is achieved.
  3. Add maple syrup to taste. Serve warm.


The ginger flavor will intensify the longer the tea sits. You can strain the ginger or use a tea infuser to help maintain a consistent flavor.

The ginger at the bottom is safe to consume, however, I usually drink the tea until there is about an inch of liquid remaining (which contains most of the ginger) and discard it.

I use and love this electric kettle to make hot water for my tea.
