    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a kettle bring your water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Cut off your chunk of ginger, peel it and smash it with a mallet.
    3. 3
      Place a tea basket in your tea pot and fill it with all the ingredients except the honey and milk.
    4. 4
      Pour the boiling water over the herbal mixture and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes. If you don't want the caffeine omit the black tea leaves but then you will need to let it steep for 5-7 minutes.
    5. 5
      In the bottom of each mug put about 1 good table spoon of honey and about a half inch of milk or cream. Stir vigorously to dissolve the honey in the milk.
    6. 6
      Pour the tea into the mixture and enjoy!
    7. 7
      Additional Notes:.
    8. 8
      If you do not have a tea pot you can boil your water in a saucepan and drop the herbs into the pan to steep. Pour and strain to serve.
    9. 9
      Also, the honey and milk amounts can be adjusted according to your individual taste.
    10. 10
      Smashing the ginger helps it to better release its flavor in the tea. This is a great alternative to coffee after a meal and goes great with cakes and cookies.
