We love this tea! We started drinking it when we had a sore throat or felt a cold coming on. We continued drinking it because we like ginger because of its anti-inflammatory properties. More importantly, we just love the taste!
We don't measure when I make this; we just add the ingredients, taste it, and adjust them. We happen to love a lot of ginger, but not everyone enjoys that much.
When we buy ginger, we peel it, and stick in in the freezer. We find that it's easier to grate when it's frozen. We just take it out and grate what I need. We used to use a ceramic ginger grater, but we now use a Microplane Zester/Grater, which we much prefer. It makes the job effortless and is also great for zesting lemons and limes and for grating other foods when a fine grate is needed.
