Fresh Ginger or Mint Tea
There are few things in life as healing as a hot cup of tea. If you want to try something truly amazing take your tea game to the next level by brewing your very own herbs and spices to make a fresh tea that will heal your mind and body.
Fresh Ginger Tea
It all starts with the root. If you have never bought fresh ginger root before you are in for a treat. It is carried in most grocery stores in the produce section. Cut off a knob of the ginger and peel it with a carrot peeler. Cut it up into small pieces (you want it fairly thin).
On a pot on the stove boil the desired amount of water (8-10 oz per knob per cup)
Drop the ginger into the water that is boiling and then turn the stove off and over the pot. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.
Strain mixture into cup(s)
Stir in any optional additions (lemon/honey or whiskey for an adult beverage)
Enjoy. It is really that simple.
Fresh Mint Tea
Mint sprig or leaves
In a pot on the stove boil the desired amount of water. Once at a rolling boil add fresh mint leaves or entire sprig. Let steep for 10-15 minutes or until water turns yellow/brown. Strain and serve with any desired additions.
Get to sipping!
