Steps To Make Ginger Lemon Tea
1. Peel and grate/mince the ginger. Fair warning: ginger is pretty powerful and potent so a little goes a long way. I typically grate a piece about 2″ long.
2. Cut a few thin slices of lemon and ginger and muddle it together in the bottom of the pot.
3. Squeeze in the juice of one lemon.
4. Add roughly 3-4 cups of water into the pot and simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
