According to Chinese culture, ginger is essential to the traditional after-birth diet for the Chinese culture.
For new mums who have recently given birth, traditional Chinese belief calls that the mother take ginger baths for 7 days, eat ginger fried rice for 7 days and drink ginger and jujube tea.
Ginger tea provides nourishment for new mothers, but it can also help battle the onset of the winter chill that brings with it the cold and flu season.
Ginger tea comes in a variety of forms, and among its most notable are the farmhouse breakfast tea, ginger obsession or a ginger kiss for a good pick-me-up tea.
You can also take ginger obsession with a few jujube berries for some extra warmth and flavour.
