2 litres Water – in a med/large pot
5 tbls of chopped Ginger (rounds)
4 tbls of dry mint leaves (or handful of fresh mint, or a mint tea bag. Again peppermint or spearmint could be used.)
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Add the Ginger and Mint to a large a pot, bring to a boil, boil for 10 to 15 mins. Let stand, add the lemon, cover and let stand again for 10 mins, it is ready to drink. Strain to drink, also add honey or other sweeteners if desired.
This tea is also really yummy chilled. Be sure to strain and put in the fridge, it stays good for at least 2 days in the fridge. You could also re-warm the tea in the microwave if would like.
