A slice of ginger and a little honey and lime turn this simple cup of tea into a uniquely refreshing treat, day or night. It has the perfect balance of flavors, producing a wonderful beverage that’s equal parts delicious and soothing.


Fresh root ginger has amazing health benefits such as boosting the body’s immune system and helping with digestion. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that have long been used for medicinal purposes. What’s more, it’s a great culinary spice. There are many ways to use fresh ginger in cooking or to flavor beverages – and even desserts. It has a spicy taste, sometimes described as sharp, so a little goes a long way.


  • When choosing ginger, look for one that’s nice and hard and doesn’t have any dark blemishes. The skin should be thin. You can remove it by scraping the surface with the back of a knife or the edge of a spoon. I like to use a vegetable peeler.
  • For this tea, take the slice of ginger from one of the knobs protruding off the main piece. Peel just what you need and cut a thin slice, about the size of a quarter.
