Home made tea

Ginger/Honey/Lemon tea.

Two of our friends in Asheville, NC (USA) took Liz and I to an Asian restaurant once. I really enjoyed the food there, but what really caught me was a tea they ordered, and when I tasted it, I just had to order it myself as well. I really like drinking coffee, but like the idea of drinking tea during cozy, dark and cold fall evenings. You get the picture. Hehe. Liz did a little bit of research and found a recipe and made the tea yesterday for my afternoon snack! The result? Delicious! So I’m asking Liz now to describe how she made it, here below so you can, hopefully, enjoy it as well!

Hey guys, Liz here! Here’s my simple recipe for Honey Ginger Lemon Tea:


fresh ginger root, lemon, honey, water

What to do:

Fill a pot with one cup of water (1-2 deciliters). Cut off about a 1 inch piece of ginger root. Grate the ginger using a little grater over the pot of water (just to make sure the ginger falls into the water). Pour a second cup of water (1-2 dl) over the grater to get the rest of the ginger off and into the pot. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze one half of the lemon into the pot of water and ginger. Add honey to taste. Heat up all of the ingredients in the pot to almost boiling.

Strain/filter the tea into mugs or a tea pot. I used a regular coffee filter, but mind you, it takes a while to let the water run through. Honestly, I only filtered it so no ginger pieces ended up in my tea pot. So, you can pretty much just take out what few pieces might be there and then just pour the rest of it into your mugs/tea pot.

Sip and savor! (and add a shot of whiskey if you’re in the mood. Hehe.)
