Ginger-Anise Tea With Lemon and Honey

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by SJBG2110

Got this from Middle Eastern Recipe ( It's especially nice when you have a sore throat or generally feel cruddy, but is also delicious anytime. The ginger really comes through in a good way. Smells good too. Make sure to pour it through a fine strainer as you want to rid the tea of seeds and depending on your ginger you might get bits of ginger settling in the bottom of the cup, which makes for a very potent last sip!

4 3/4 stars. This is good and different than teas I've had. I used star anise instead of anise seed and freshly squeezed lemon juice. I did not boil the honey in the tea rather mixed it in after to be more healthy. I may make this again. Made for Welcome to the Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.

  1. Bring all the ingredients to a boil in a small pan then let simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour through a strainer into a mug. For me this ends up making either a little more than one mug or enough for two small mugs.
