That means there's a big chance you started overdosing on hot beverages, much like myself. In my quest for awesome teas, I've come across a ginger root and while staring at it, I started thinking "You could go in my cup,couldn't you?". And it did.
Ginger in a Cup I called it, later realized it wasn't the most appropriate name and renamed it Ginger Tea. Lack of originality galore right there, but we can't be all cannibalistic with gingers in cups, can we?
In any case, I wish to share my new discovery with you, because not only does it taste good, but it's also healthy and might save your life in case of colds.
You will need:
The Ginger: preferably a root, not a human
Lemon: can't really be mistaken for a human, so I think that one's a safe description
What to do with it:
- First up,cut some ginger root slices. You can slice, dice or whatever other shape you wish to give it, just try to cut it relatively thin so that the flavor comes out easier. I put about 3 slices in the cup
- Pour some boiling water over the ginger slices and let it sit for at least 3 minutes
- Add your lemon first and then the honey. There's no right or wrong here, add as much or as little of both as you wish.
I've been overdosing on this tea for the past couple of days and I've only toned the consumption down because I'm slowly running out of ginger. But it's definitely one of my favorites now and I think it's going to be a staple drink this winter!
