Ginger Tea

I fell in love when I went for a SPA session in Bali...BUT I've never been quite able to find one that quite comes close....

Here's one recipe. Try it and tell me!

How to Make Ginger Tea

Warm your digestive fire and prevent colds. Hot ginger tea is an excellent winter drink. You can use it to strengthen digestion, improve circulation, or ward off colds, sore throat and the flu. It's very easy to make ginger tea.

Here are the instructions:
Hot Ginger Tea
4 cups of water
2 inch piece of fresh ginger root
Optional: honey and lemon

Peel the ginger root and slice it into thin slices.
Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan.
Once it is boiling, add the ginger.
Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Strain the tea.
Add honey and lemon to taste.

Note: Keep in mind that if you are making this tea to strengthen the immune system and ward off colds and flu, sweeteners are not recommended.
