Tea with ginger and thyme
Ingredients for 2 persons
* 1 piece of fresh ginger (approximately 7 cm.)
* 4 fresh thyme sprigs
* 4 lemon slices
* Honey (or your sweetener of choice), to taste
1/ Place the sliced ginger and four cups of water in a kettle or saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, for five to ten minutes (simmering for longer will yield a more intense ginger flavor). Remove from the heat and steep for five minutes.
2/ Put a lemon slice and a thyme sprig in each mug. Pour the tea through a fine-mesh strainer into the mugs
3/ Season with honey (or your favorite sweetener) to taste. (I use about half a teaspoon of honey per serving.) Remove the lemon slice after a minute, or leave it in for a stronger citrus flavor.
4/ Useful tip : Enjoy hot and feel better!
