In my last January Favourites post, I mentioned my love for ginger and it was requested that I share my recipe with you all. I am also addicted to tea, and think that drinking this drink is a lovely way to take in some healthy ingredients without much effort.
There are many benefits to consuming ginger, as it aids digestion and helps to give you a boost of energy. Similarly, lemon grass is healthy because it is a good source of iron and vitamin C. Finally, green tea is a widely used natural anti-oxidant and is absolutely yummy.
To make this tea you will need:
- Fresh ginger
- Fresh lemongrass
- Green teabags/loose green tea (optional)
- Boiling water
- A teapot/tea strainer
This recipe will easily serve 2, and make around 4 mugs of tea.
Step 1: Peel the ginger and cut into medium sized pieces.
Step 2: Lightly bruise the lemongrass with the back of your knife and cut into similar sized pieces.
Step 3: Get the green tea leaves out of 2 teabags or measure out 4 teaspoons of green tea.
Step 4: Add it all into your teapot or into separate strainers and add the boiling water.
Step 5: Leave to steep for at least five minutes, you can leave it in for longer depending on how strong you like your tea.
Step 6: Strain your tea.
Step 7: Enjoy your tea!
