Fresh Ginger Tea
4 quarter-size (diameter and thickness of a quarter) slices of fresh peeled ginger root
2 cups water
Note: I make this tea in a small Corningware brand glass pot, and you can also use a ceramic tea kettle or other non-metal pot or vessel.
Simmer the ginger slices in the water for about 5 minutes. Strain and pour into two mugs or cups, and sweeten with honey if desired (about 1 tsp per cup). This recipe makes 2 servings, and is easily multiplied.
PS: If you enjoy the zingy bite of fresh ginger, you'll love Buderim Ginger Bears, a zippy, healthy and tasty alternative to your typical gummy candies.
