Calamansi Honey Ginger Tea

This is my family's cure-all elixir tea. Ginger is known for it's medicinal properties, especially in aiding stomachaches and motion-sickness. Honey works wonders for scratchy throats and congestion. The added acidity from the calamansi fruit brightens up this wonderful tea.

Yield: makes 2 cups
