Very nice tea... Only made one change to the recipe and that was to omit the sugar. Such a nice change from coffee this morning.I normally do not add milk or cream to my tea, but really like how it smooths the brightness of the ginger. Always keep fresh ginger in the freezer, so I will be able to making this often. Made and reviewed for AUS/NZ Swap #63

  1. Combine the milk, tea and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Wash a thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger. Pound until flat - juice should begin to ooze.
  3. Add the ginger to the milk-tea mixture when it begins to boil.
  4. Reduce the heat, letting it all simmer for 2-3 minutes.
