"This old Chinese recipe is deceptively simple but addictive. Great substitute for hot spiced apple cider during the holidays. Warms the soul on a cold winter's evening!" — CC

sliced fresh ginger
packed brown sugar
I used to make this all the time, minus the sugar and honey. Just 3 or 4 slices of ginger in a little bit of boiling water (for a single serving) for a few minutes and it's ready. Don't fret over measurements, you can make this as strong or as light as you want. This "tea" is the bomb!
I'm not crazy about this one. I love ginger, brown sugar, and honey, however, a whole cup of brown sugar was way too much. You couldn't even taste the ginger anymore. My suggestion would be to cut the brown sugar down by half.
This was recommended to me several months back when I was really ill and needed something other than tea to feel better. This is great for almost any illness, even morning sickness. The ginger settles any upset stomach and the honey coats the throat. This is great stuff. Sometimes, I'll add sliced lemons to the hot "tea".
MMMMMMMMMM! Warm, soothing and good! My only advice is to adjust the brown sugar and honey to your tastes, otherwise it's a bit on the sweet side. Thank you CC for making my sore throat feel better!
This is delicious and sooo healthy! I add a little bit of half and half to give it a little creamy flavor. I also grate my ginger, it comes out a little stronger and you wont have to use as much.
This doesn't need so much sugar. It is great for opening up the sinuses. Boil it even longer to spice it up.
This is my go to illness cure. I only use 1/2 cup of brown sugar and add some lemon at the end. Perfect!
Very good with fresh, peeled and crushed lemon. Remove the seeds.
