Ginger... cheers you up This bold way of crushing ginger is from a chai shop in Assam, India. Smash it 2-3 times with the bottom of the cup. . . After that, throw it in a pot and boil it with tea, milk and sugar, and the ginger chai will be ready in no time. . Yesterday I was a little tired and had less power, but after drinking tea with plenty of ginger and sleeping, I woke up feeling great this morning. Ginger is amazing. I believe in the power of ginger and black tea!
