Honey and Ginger Tea

    15 min

    This tea doesn't contain any tea leaves, but it is a delicious drink nonetheless. The tea is made from simmering fresh ginger in water, that is sweetened with dark brown sugar and honey. Truly addictive.

    I used to make this all the time, minus the sugar and honey. Just 3 or 4 slices of ginger in a little bit of boiling water (for a single serving) for a few minutes and it's ready. Don't fret over measurements, you can make this as strong or as light as you want. This "tea" is the bomb!  -  04 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was recommended to me several months back when I was really ill and needed something other than tea to feel better. This is great for almost any illness, even morning sickness. The ginger settles any upset stomach and the honey coats the throat. This is great stuff. Sometimes, I'll add sliced lemons to the hot "tea".  -  03 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm not crazy about this one. I love ginger, brown sugar, and honey, however, a whole cup of brown sugar was way too much. You couldn't even taste the ginger anymore. My suggestion would be to cut the brown sugar down by half.  -  09 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
