Ginger tea is something I picked up when I lived in Singapore. In the city or if you are traveling around to Indonesia, Thailand etc. ginger tea is something so casual that you bump into it in almost every menu. The recipe for home made ginger tea is almost effortless...
makes 2 cups
1-2 tea spoons grated fresh ginger root (depending on how spicy you prefer the drink to be)
1 tbs raisins
1 cinnamon stick
400 ml boiling water from a kettle
1 orange or two mandarins (the freshly squeezed juice)
1 tbs lemon juice (or to taste)
2 tea spoons honey or light brown sugar (or to taste)
It is most convenient to make the a tea pot with a removable filter. Place the ginger, raisins and cinnamon stick (broken into 2-3 pieces).
Add 400 ml of boiling water, put the lid on and let stand for 5-7 minutes. After that, remove the filter, squeezing out all the liquid into the tea.
Add the honey or sugar, mix to dissolve. Add the orange and lemon juice and enjoy.
