Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds: Ginger Honey Tea



This recipe is. . .kind of intuitive.  It's tea.  With ginger and honey.  So the pictures are boring.

But what you have to understand is that when I made this, it was 19°F outside.  It hasn't been that cold here in a really long time, not even when we had this season's "snow," so it was cold, and Dennis was out of town, and I needed some good tea.

And this is good tea.

I forgot to add the lemon the original recipe called for, so I'm just going to leave it out.  If you want lemon in it, go for it.

Ginger Honey Tea

Serves 2 - 4, depending on how much you want


Ingredients




1 tsp. ground ginger
1 large strip lemon zest
6 cups water
1/3 cup honey
4 tea bags (I used Earl Gray.  Again, use whatever you like.)



In a medium-sized pot, mix the water, lemon zest, ginger, and honey.  Bring to a boil.  Once it boils, remove from heat and add tea bags.  Steep the bags to your desired strength, and remove the bags before serving.
