Nice and spicy but not overly. I like the flavour of this a lot. I cut this down twice and simmered for the same amount of time. Mine was medium to dark brown using the larger amount of cinnamon sticks. I would make this again especially for someone feeling under the weather. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

Being a devoted ginger tea drinker I had to try this once I'd seen Tink's lovely photo and I wasn't disappointed. I didn't need the pine nuts as I love the bite of ginger and the cinnamon added that nice little extra punch. I used a small amount of honey to sweeten and sat back and really enjoyed this. Loved that it made enough to set back to have this afternoon. I was disappointed that mine didn't have the lovely deep color of Tink's picture but the taste was still wonderful. Thanks Sharon for a very pleasant cup of tea. Unrated Asian Recipe Tag Game - July-August 2009�

I made a half recipe, as I'm the only one that will drink it. I was sure I still had pine nuts on hand but must've depleted them. Since I'm a regular ginger tea drinker though, I didn't need them to cut the strength. It was so aromatic while simmering & both the ginger & the cinnamon were prominent flavors in the end. I tried it straight & with a bit of Chilean honey. Both were delicious. My toddler DD saw me pouring my tea cup & she wanted to have a tea party too so I've posted both mine & hers. :) Thanks for sharing, Sharon! Made for Unrated Asian Recipes tag game in the Asian forum.
