Sharon - My sister gave a similar recipe for me to try on my DD (as a soup), since she is sick a lot and has stomach nauseau often. Hers included miso, seaweed and shiitake mushrooms also. Here's what she said about it "Basically the miso, the seaweed and the shitakes are DEEP immune builders (and d@@n tastey!), the ginger, the cayenne, the scallions help remove excess heat from the body and get circulation going." Maybe I'll post the recipe...
I made this for *Zaar World Tour III* and for my hubby who currently has a cold. He described it as "liquid fire". I had a tasted and WOW it had strong flavours. Thank you Sharon123
I chose this recipe for it's unique ingredients, not thinking I would enjoy them much. Boy oh boy was I suprised, I really enjoyed this drink. It's peppery, spicy, sweet and a touch salty. It makes for a great winter drink as it's very warming, I also think it would work well as a pms drink :) thank you for posting this recipe Sharon.
I frequently enjoy a cup of tea made with ginger and honey so this seemed like a pleasant variation. The spiciness of the ginger paired well with the earthy flavors from scallion and from the sea salt. And yes, it did calm my tummy. I did not have any mineral water and used spring water instead. Thanks Sharon.
I love this tea!! I have a cold and this is great. I used a greater amount of pasteurised honey :/, the lesser amount of fresh ginger slices, spring water plus the rest. I would make this again!! Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.
