Warm & Spicy Ginger Tea

I learnt to make this soothing ginger tea from chef Shahir Masood who hosts a show on CBC.  It turned out so good I had to share the recipe...This recipe makes sufficient quantity for 3.

Bring to boil 900ml  of water.

Add 1/2 cup of chopped ginger,

Add 9 tsp (3 tbsp) of honey (1tsp equals 5ml).

Add juice from about 1/2 a lemon, (about a tbsp which equals 3 tsp).

Add a pinch of cayenne

let it boil covered on medium low heat for about 10 minutes.
Pour the hot liquid through a filter into 3 large sized mugs.

Garnish with a slice of lemon and enjoy this warm and spicy ginger tea.

Note: I use the left over boiled ginger pieces for my morning smoothies or other dishes.
