Ginger Tea

Imagine waking up on cold winter mornings and sipping hot ginger tea…. the aroma of ginger blending with the fragrance of the tea and the warmth of the tea cup in your hands….. Divine isn't it? Ginger tea, ideal for winters, is said to keep away colds, sore throats and fever. It also relieves nausea and aids digestion.

Ginger tea is regular at my place especially in winters. Here's how I make it:

¾ cup water
1 heaped spoon ginger minced
1 tsp tea leaves
½ cup milk
2 tsp sugar

Pound the ginger with a pestle. Heat the water in a saucepan on a medium flame. Add the ginger and let it simmer for atleast 10 minutes till a nice aroma wafts from the saucepan. Then add tea, sugar and milk and allow it to boil once. Simmer for a minute and take off from the stove. Strain the tea into a cup and serve immediately.
