DIRECTIONS

  • In a kettle bring your water to a boil.
  • Cut off your chunk of ginger, peel it and smash it with a mallet.
  • Place a tea basket in your tea pot and fill it with all the ingredients except the honey and milk.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pour the tea into the mixture and enjoy!
  • Additional Notes:
  • 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.
  • Also, the honey and milk amounts can be adjusted according to your individual taste.
  • 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.
