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.
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.
