I love this ginger stuff (picture to the right) which is basically ginger sitting in honey. I couldn’t find any online but it’s available at most Asian markets in New York.

Many people just dissolve a teaspoon or two in hot water for simple ginger tea but one of my favorite winter drinks is a hot cup of Ginger Milk Tea. Here’s the basic recipe which you can adjust to your taste:

2 teaspoons of that ginger stuff
1 cup of boiling water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon heavy cream
1 tea bag (black tea)

1. Place the ginger stuff in a mug and dissolve with hot water.
2. Add sugar and heavy cream and stir.
3. Dunk tea bag and remove tea bag depending on how bitter/strong you like your tea.

It’s so good; I’m about to make my third cup of the day.
