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.
Can we double check the proportions? This packs a wallop. I used my kitchen scale and made a half recipe using what I thought was 40 grams of ginger. Youngest Son and I finished ours, but I added water. Youngest Daughter couldn't touch it; and Mr. JB, who usually likes food with Authority, found it too powerful for him.
