Ginger Tea


During previous visits to Amsterdam I’ve always liked the way they make mint tea with fresh sprigs of mint rather than a tea bag.  This time a new discovery – ginger tea made with slices of root ginger in hot water with a little honey to add according to taste. Delicious – even though it might have looked like somebody had put slices of raw potato into the glass!

  1. I love when people make drinks using whole ingredients! In Russia I had tarhun (tarragon-flavored soda) made from nothing but tarragon, soda water and a pinch of sugar – it was amazing!

  2. I’ve done that before when I had an upset stomach. The cookies/biscuits look mighty tasty. And may I inquire what is that chocolate-y decadence behind your ginger tea?

  3. Last year, my friend over-ordered on her online shopping and ended up with a ton of ginger (well, not quite). Some of it is still in our freezer; this would be a good thing to do with it.
