Therefore here is the recipe of how to prepare Sri Lankan Ginger Tea.

1 tea bag or 1 tspn loose tea (Ceylon Black Tea)
1 tspn of grated/crushed ginger

Before preparing the tea, warm the tea pot by adding a small amount of boiling water to the pot. Swirl the water & remove before preparing the tea.
Place tea bag in a tea pot & pour boiling water into it. Add crushed ginger. Cover the teapot. Allow to simmer about 4 minutes.
Strain the tea into serving cups & add sugar to taste. Instead of sugar, you can add honey or other sweetener.
