I did manage to buy the supplies but never got around to actually making the tea. I honestly don't think that I could have managed to drink it. So I went on the hunt for something similar and I found this... (here)
Strong Anti-Viral Tea
One cup of peeled, chopped and minced fresh ginger
10 cups of water
Apple cider (1/2 cup per serving)
Peel and mince the ginger (a food processor makes little work of this job).
Simmer the minced ginger in 10 cups of water for an hour or so. Strain.
When ready to have a serving place 1/2 cup of the strained ginger water in a pan with 1/2
cup of apple cider and a squirt or two of lemon juice. Heat and serve.
Ginger is fantastic and treats so many things. Fortunately this tea tastes great, which will definately encourage me to drink it for a ginger lover I am not.
