Making Ginger Lemon Tea

So if you want to try your own here’s what you’ll need:

A sharp knife

A microplane or potato peeler

A clamp style citrus juicer.

A cutting board.

Ginger Root

Lemon

Cut off  a 1″ chunk of ginger – peel the outer brown skin. Then make thin slices and then julienne and finally chop it up.

Use the microplane of potato peeler to take the zest of a lemon. Then chop that up and combine with the ginger above. Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon – use good stuff. Ceylon is much better than Accacia cinnamon.

Combine chopped ginger and lemon zest with the cinnamon and put in your tea pot or a pan.  Now cut the lemon in half and juice each into the tea pot or pan.

Add water to fill the pot or pan and then bring to a boil for a minute or two. Cut off the heat and let the ginger and lemon mix settle to the bottom. Pour yourself out a dynamite Lemon Ginger tea. It’s awesome.
