Ginger and spice. This time of year it is still cold in the Salty City. Which means that I’m still craving warming beverages served piping hot.
This is a variation of the Fresh Turmeric-Ginger Tonic Tea that I’ve posted about before. It is warming, comforting and combines my love of heat+sweet and spicy+warm plus a touch of tart.
For this version, I actually boil the ginger along with galangal (a Thai version of ginger that is surprisingly floral) and whole peppercorns and crushed red pepper for a burst of spice. It WILL clear out your sinuses, boost your metabolism, quell an upset stomach and best of all it will warm you up from the inside out on a cold day.
