Hot tea in June

Okay, I've really been trying to keep the weather out of this blog, but as the recent streak of chill and rain doesn't seem to end anytime soon, it seems I just have to tell you how extremely annoying this is.

On the upside it's just the right weather for reading, writing and doodling while sipping a large mug of delicious lemon-ginger-mint tea. What you need is:

  • 2-3 sprigs of fresh mint
  • a little piece of ginger
  • half a lemon, preferably organic
  • honey.

Peel and grate the ginger until you have about half a teaspoon of ginger mush. Also grate a bit of the lemon peel. Use your hands to queeze the lemon joice into your cup, then cut the lemon into pieces. Add those also. The mint sprigs can be added as a whole. Add everything to your cup along with a teaspoon of honey. Infuse with boiling water (best use a large mug that holds 0.3-0.4 l). As soon as the tea is cool enough to be drunk it is ready.

I find this to be one of the most delicious drinks ever. Besides the ginger and lemon juice will hopefully prevent colds.
