Ginger Mint Tea Recipe by – Fresh Organic Recipes
When the weather turns cold nothing warms you up like a hot, steaming cup of tea. Making your own fresh tea is not only easy, it’s healthier and much more economical. One of my favorite winter tea recipes that I developed is Fresh Ginger Mint tea with Honey.
For best flavor use either fresh mint that is grown without pesticides or try our Organic Peppermint Tea available in individual unbleached tea bags. Whenever possible use local, raw honey.
8-10 fresh mint leaves or 2 tablespoons dried organic mint leaves, or 1 peppermint tea bag.
1 tablespoon organic raw honey – if possible always use local honey.
2 tablespoons peeled and shaved fresh ginger root.
2 1/2 cups water
Place a medium size saucepan on high and add water. Bring water to a boil and add the ginger. Boil the ginger under the liquid is reduced by half. Strain ginger water, discarding shaved ginger root.
Chop up fresh mint leaves and place in a tea strainer ball. Pour honey in large mug then pour steaming ginger water over honey, stir to melt honey. Dunk tea ball with mint leaves in it into the mug and steep for several minutes before drinking.
I usually triple this recipe to make a pot of tea for those cold winter days. The fresh mint and ginger helps to open up your sinuses and airways. When making this tea I like to use either Orange Mint or Peppermint, but you can use whatever mint you have available.
