I love making ginger tea in the morning before my 7:30 yoga class, especially in the winter. It warms me up. I am hoping Mike will give it a try.

| Claire gave me this cool container. |
Keeps my tea warm.
Can be served hot or chilled.
1 rounded T. grated peeled ginger root (Note: I also add turmeric)
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 - 2 T honey
In a small sauce pan, bring the grated ginger and water almost to a boil, then cover and steep for 5 minutes. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the ginger tea, pressing the liquid out of the grated ginger with the back of a spoon.
Stir together the OJ, lemon juice, honey and ginger tea. Reheat for a hot beverage, or chill and add ice.
