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
1. Slice ginger into matchsticks or disks. Add ginger and water to a small pot. Bring to a boil. Cover pot and let ginger steep for 10-15 minutes. Add calamansi juice and honey. Stir until honey dissolves. Strain ginger. Reheat tea, if necessary. Serve warm with thin slices of calamansi fruit. Adjust sweetness according to taste.
*Alternatively, you can use 1/2 lemon in place of calamansi.
