Making ginger tea:

Step 1: Prepare the products.

In separate bowls we will prepare separately the products necessary for making ginger tea. Namely, we cut the lemon into thin slices. Cut the root of fresh ginger into small strips, after washing and peeling it. Take 1 pinch of ground black pepper, and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Remember that honey is a great alternative to sugar, and less calorie for dieters.

Step 2: Bring the water to a boil.

A kettle for boiling water is best chosen from glass or ceramic, aluminum can give an unpleasant aftertaste. The volume of the kettle can be any, but 2-3 liters is preferred. The form can also be any, but it is better if it is close to the ball. In our case, a heat-resistant glass teapot best meets the tea traditions in making ginger tea.

Step 3: Add Ginger.

We add ginger root, chopped into small strips, in hot, boiled water and bring to a boil again, continuing to cook for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Add the rest of the ingredients.

Then, in turn, add the remaining ingredients: lemon sliced, a pinch of pepper to taste, sugar or honey until dissolved. And we continue to heat on low heat for 10-15 minutes.

Step 7: Serve the ginger tea.

Now you need to let the tea brew, enough for about 20 minutes. Then strain into a convenient kettle and pour into cups. Savor carefully! The aroma is divine, but the taste is for an amateur! Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Ginger tea is especially delicious on cold days.

- - If ginger tea is used as a soft drink, add peppermint with pepper and lemon juice. Cool, and then add pieces of ice to tea.

- - The best material for tea cups: porcelain, clay, faience, glass. Absolutely bad: any tin and plastic.

- - Both honey and sugar are sweet, but since honey is sweeter than sugar, the total number of digestible calories is less to give sweetness the same amount of product.
