Brew a cup of our healing tea and reap ginger's golden rewards. Fresh lemon balances the ginger's bright acidity, while honey mellows the spice.

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 piece (3 inches) fresh ginger , peeled
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 to 6 sprigs fresh mint
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/3 cup liquid honey

Method

Thinly slice ginger into rounds. Using vegetable peeler, peel 2 long strips of zest from lemon. Halve lemon and squeeze 1/4 cup juice; set aside. Strip mint leaves from stems; set mint leaves aside.

In large saucepan, bring ginger, lemon zest, mint stems and water to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; partially cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice, honey and mint leaves. Cover and steep, 10 to 15 minutes. Strain into large teapot; serve. (If you like iced ginger tea, let tea cool completely; strain into large pitcher and add ice.)
