How long do you steep the ginger for? Would you basically just put a piece of ginger in a tea pot, add boiling water and wait 5 minutes?Originally Posted by Keelin
Wanna really blast your cold? Steep a small piece of ginger in water, sweeten, drink. Try not to blast your face off, though. ;D
Personally, I can't stand red teas... but some people really like them. 'Fancy' green teas (jasmine, pomegranate, etc) are really good. Or try steeping Earl Grey or chai in 50% water 50% soymilk/ricemilk. Yum
Not all green tea is created equal! I have a sencha in my cupboard that makes me dance with glee (and yes, I do drink it plain).
Check out The TeaSource, it's my favorite place to get any type of green tea, especially the Sencha or Sencha Uji. And if you like scented green teas, the Jasmine Yin Hao is to die for.
