Ginger Tea

I was just on KUSI this morning. Never thought anyone was watching. But lo and behold, people were walking in to my restaurant Saffron wanting to know how to make ginger tea. Phones were
ringing constantly at the restaurant as well. It seemed everyone wanted to know how to make ginger tea. It's so easy. First, you have to go to the store and buy some fresh ginger root. Make sure it is not all dried up. Then once you get home, wash and slice it into thin pieces. Let's say you want to make a couple of cups. Slice maybe 12 - 15 thin pieces and pound them a bit. Put the whole works in a saucepan and add about 2 cups drinking water. Turn the heat on high. Once it starts to boil, lower the heat to medium-low and it cook until your whole house starts to smell like ginger and you begin to find yourself feeling real mellow. Turn off the heat and put the light yellow liquid through a strainer over a measuring cup. Add 1 tablespoon honey and stir. Take a sip and relax. That's it.

Su-Mei, I'm so glad you posted this recipe. I just had a cup of Ginger Tea at Saffron yesterday and wanted to know how to make it myself, it was so delicious. Thanks for posting the recipe! (Most of your recipes are quite complicated and challenging, but I think I can handle this one).
