Simple Ginger Tea

This recipe is how I commonly make and drink my ginger tea. It is super easy to make and it is delicious! I enjoy drinking the tiny bits of ginger that will result from using a low carb ginger paste.

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Serving: 1 cup

Recipe:
1 – 2 tsp. Ginger Paste ( I use this one.)
1/2 Fresh Lemon
1 c. Water

Prepare:
1. Warm a cup of water until the water is hot. Keep in mind that the paste is cool, so it will drop the temperature slightly.
2. Add 1-2 tsp. ginger paste to hot water and stir until ginger pieces are separated.
3. Squeeze about 1/2 the juice of a lemon in the cup.
4. Enjoy! (Use more or less ginger and lemon to fit your taste.)

Fresh fruits and vegetables are typically always better! Therefore, I am including this simple fresh ginger and lime recipe.

2. Add about 2 inches of peeled thinly sliced ginger to the pot and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer at least 10 minutes.
