This is great! Added lemongrass and a dash of rose water whilst it simmered. My partner, who's trying to cut back on coffee, thinks it's delicious too! Thanks!
This has become "my" tea now! I've modified the recipe a little. I cut down the ginger a bit as it was quite strong and I upped the cinnamon sticks to 4 (I use Ceylon Cinnamon rather than the usual Saigon Cinnamon and I make two batches from 1 set of ingredients). It is sweet without sugar that way. Great hot or over ice .... it's been 95 degrees here, so I've had plenty of opportunity to test the recipe!! Thank you for sharing janem123!
This was very strong in flavour and but I think it was healthy for my tummy. I did steep covered for 20 minutes. I felt it needed to be sweetened with more honey to make it taste better because of the ginger being so strong. I'm sure ginger can very in potency so maybe that is why. I added the lemon slice to the tea after tasting it without. I did not squeeze it but did it for the health benefits also. I won't make this again. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.
