Does ginger have any correlation with hiccups?

I get hiccups whenever I drink ginger tea, even though I drink slowly and take really small sips. It doesn't happen when I drink any other kind of tea.

Updates:
It doesn't happen when I drink ginger ale or ginger beer though.

  • I don't think ginger normally leads to hiccups but maybe it causes some type of allergic reaction that gives you hiccups

    • Now that I think about it, ginger ale doesn't give me hiccups either. Now I'm confused lol

  • I had a ginger friend who constantly kept getting hiccups
    I think there is correlation.

  • Maybe you're taking air in too when you take tiny sips?

  • Possibly! But ginger also helps with heartburn!

  • Lol really? Maybe it's a psychological thing? I've never heard of something like that to be honest.
