      This recipe is not how I imagined it would turn out. The ginger flavor was nice, but it was way too sweet and syrup-like for my taste. Thanks for a nice concept. I may try it again but with half the sugar. (Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009)

      A very refreshing tea with a nice ginger punch! You have to be prepared for the 2 days of steepng, but it is this method that makes the ginger flavour so pronounced and yet not too bitter. I cut back on the quantities to half and we all enjoyed this on the terrace in the garden. Made for the Comfort Cafe Summer 2009. Thanks for posting. FT:-)
