I wonder, did anyone ever try making ginger tea? Real one! Buy root ginger in the store, grind a piece, boil in water for a while, it just tastes sooo good :)

Not much hassle at all, what I've heard ginger is very healthy..

Isn't a bit slack calling it tea? I mean, what's tea got to do with it? If I grind a chicken up and let it sit in some hot water, is that then chicken tea?

On the other hand, I'm not sure what you would call it.

Never made ginger tea, but that is the first step I do for making sweet and sour pork!

Maybe I'll try a sip - before I add the pork.

Interesting.. it needs to be relatively strong though to get the required *kick*, add a little sugar to taste :P
