Iced Lemon Ginger Tea (recipe)

Iced Ginger Lemon Tea

As promised, here is the recipe for the Iced Ginger Lemon Tea which was the beverage component of my submission to the 40th installment of Happy Sorceress’ Blog Party series. This drink is wonderfully refreshing and has a soft muted tone, thanks to the use of honey. Not only does the honey take the sharpness off the ginger flavour, it also makes this drink especially soothing on the throat. Although it was served ice cold this time around, it is equally delicious warm. For those in the colder temperate climates I think that this could could make a very festive alternative, or complement, to warm apple cider. Hot or cold, give it a try! :)

    That looks refreshing and delicious, and the fresh ginger reminds me of ginger ale we made with our hosts in Trinidad when we visited many years ago.
