Spicy Ginger Tea

This lovely tea recipe was inspired by my childhood friend Rachael. She told me to boil ginger root and cinnamon sticks – it smells amazing and makes a great tea. So I tried it and, over time, perfected the proportions and added some honey. Now, at home, I’ll say to Justin “I’m going to make ginger tea, do you want some?” “Oooh, yeah!” he always says. Enjoy this tea during the last cold days of winter.

1) Combine ginger root, cinnamon stick, and water in a pot and bring to a boil.

2) Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 20 minutes.

3) Add 1 tablespoon of honey to two mugs. Pour the tea through a fine mesh sieve evenly into the two mugs. Stir and enjoy!

Good, I'm glad you liked it! I bet if you added some cardamom he would really swoon over it...ha ha.
