Korean Ginger Tea
From koreanrecipes.org.If 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.
- Ready In:
- fresh ginger, 80 g
- cinnamon, pieces- 20 g
- water, 8 cups
- 4 -5 pine nuts (Optional (just before you serve the tea)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Clean the ginger well
- Rinse the cinnamon in cold water.
- Thin slice the ginger.
- Put the ginger, cinnamon, and water into a pot.
- Boil it on medium (or low) heat for about 25-30 minutes.
- Sieve the ginger and cinnamon. (Use a white straining cloth if you can, to catch the small dirt from the cinnamon).
- Serve it in a tea cup. (You can also add some pine nuts and honey).
MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY
JOIN THE CONVERSATION
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!
