Ingredients
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon of roughly chopped ginger
  • 1-2 T lemon juice
  • water
Instructions
  1. To make the ginger infusion, pour 2-3 cups of boiling water over ginger in a tempered glass measuring cup or bowl. When it’s cooled, transfer to a glass jar and let it steep several hours to overnight in the fridge.
  2. To make the tea, pour ¼-1/3 cup of the ginger infusion into an 8 oz. mug.
  3. Juice a lemon (or two) to yield 1-2 T of lemon juice. Add 1 T of the juice to the ginger infusion.
  4. Pour boiling water into the mug. Add the remaining tablespoon of lemon juice for a strong lemon flavor, if desired.
Recipe Notes

RECIPE NOTES: Pouring less water over the minced ginger will yield a stronger ginger flavor. The infusion keeps for about one week in the fridge if stored properly.
