Ginger Tea For Two

You're in luck!
Due to a little on-line technical difficulty, 
you're getting a fabulous recipe & taste of a legendary 
vegetarian restaurant instead of a look around the studio.

Recently, my Mother-In-Law and I had lunch at 
one of our favorite spots, the Moosewood Restaurant 
in Ithaca, NY. (Never a bad meal - click on their link 
for some spectacular, free, easy vegetarian recipes.) 

I was wowed by their Ginger Iced Tea, 
and while I don't have their recipe, I experimented and
 this is pretty darn close. I don't even have a photo to share 
because I drank all of the tea and am now out of ginger. 
Sorry! That's how good it is.  

If you like ginger, and if you like a little kick 
to your beverage, this is for you:  

Iced Ginger Tea

2 cups water
2 Tbsp. peeled, grated Ginger
1 Tbsp. Honey & 1 tsp.Cinnamon, both optional

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil.
Stir in the ginger, honey and cinnamon.
Let steep for 10-25 minutes, 
depending on how hard a kick you want.

Strain, or pour directly into 2 large, ice-filled glasses.
The tea will lighten in color and turn a bit opaque.

I think I found my new summer drink...
Let me know what you think!


  1. Sounds divine! Eager to give it a try.

  2. Well first let me say I am jealous you get to eat at Moosewood!! This sounds really yummy and refreshing. Thanks for the recipe!! Clarice
