Oh Manda, this is great. I happen to love the taste of ginger and this fit the bill. I had seen Loof's photo and review on My 3 Chefs and knew I had to try it. The only think I did differant was use splenda instead of sugar, and ginger loose tea that I had purchased on a trip to Thailand. It truly is amazing. Thanks so much for a recipe I'll be using often.
This is amazing! I just loved everything about this tea. I used teabags instead of loose tea and didn't use the optional whipped cream. Such a sweet, soothing, delicious drink - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs, November 2009
