From spicy is not your thing,don't boil it for that long.Just a little simmer to get it just the way you like it.Koreans eat very spicy food so I'm not surprised by boiling it for 25-30 minutes.Even though I love hot food,for me even the 15 minutes was too much.I suggest to taste it and turn off the heat when is suites your taste.

This was a really great recipe, though I thought the ginger was a little too strong. I added the honey, but a little more than what was called for.

Turned out well with changes to time and proportions. I did this by guessing at proportions for my taste and simmering for way less time. I also used more organic unpasteurized (not the same as raw sadly it still is heated to filter I understand) honey but that is a preference of honey love anyway!

I quartered the recipe and thought the amount of ginger was okay, but next time wouldn't cook it so long. I enjoyed the tea with a little more honey and really enjoyed the pine nuts! And I added a little more water at the end. Thanks for a yummy tea! Made for Australian Recipe Swap-Feb. 2010.
