Recipe: Ginger tea with Lemon and Honey

Recipe: Ginger tea with Lemon and Honey

If there were such a thing as a beauty contest for roots, you would probably find ginger at the very bottom, together with Jerusalem artichoke and celeriac. Furthermore,  I’ve always thought that ginger tasted like soap, and I have a grim, grim childhood memory that includes diced ginger disguised as potatoes, so it took a while before ginger and I really hit it off.

Though my tastebuds grew up, and all of a sudden, I couldn’t get enough of the ugly root. I’ve grown particularly fond of ginger in hot drinks, and I love the soothing, comforting taste of ginger, lemon and honey. This tea tastes amazing and works wonders as a pick-me-up on those days where I’m feeling a little under the weather. I use hot, black tea as a base, because it gives the tea a nice color and a better flavor, but you’re looking for a caffeine-free drink, you can use a herbal tea, or just plain boiling water as a base instead.
