Ginger Mint Tea

By Helen Brody (December 27, 2013)

Pat McGovern of the Upper Valley Localvores made note of this “calming fresh ginger- mint tea from “My Life in Food.” It not only is winter warming but remind one of fresh summer mint.  Pat occasionally adds a bit of local maple syrup. New Hampshire honey is another option (especially with a sore throat).


Boiling water

1-inch un-peeled thinly sliced ginger root (serrated knife works best) 

5 mint leaves (hope you have lots dried from this summer’s bounty) or use dried spearmint or peppermint from local co-op


Place the ginger in the bottom of your mug. Add boiling water and mint and let sit for 5 minutes. Sip and enjoy.

Makes 1 cup of tea
