We serve this delicious hot tea in the afternoons during the wintery months and guests are always asking for the recipe. For anyone needing perking up mid day this drink will do it. Use a lot of ginger, honey and lemon juice. We call it the Elixer of Life as it can cure just about anything that ails you, at least for a little while.
Hot Ginger Tea
About 1/3 cup of chopped or grated ginger
Juice of 2 lemons
4 Tablespoons of honey
2 quarts of boiling hot water.
Place all ingredients in a large jar or teapot, covered, to steep about 15 minutes. Stir well and strain each cup thru a sieve when serving. Leave the remaining pulp in the teapot and add more water for another batch as the ginger will still have enough flavoring power and your tea friends will probably want another cup.
