One recipe I used was the equivalent of 1 in. (2.54 cm) of ginger root per 1 gallon of water. Since in the past I've had ginger go bad in the refrigerator, I chop it up and put it in a Ziploc bag for freezer storage, so it will keep.
The ginger tea has a really nice spicy taste to it and it tastes better than a lot of other herbal teas.
