Steeping ginger, orange peels, and black tea.
  1. Cut the 1 inch piece of fresh ginger into thin slices. (Optionally, muddle the ginger for a bolder flavor). Set these in a heat-safe dish or pitcher with a pour spout.

  2. Use a peeler to peel 4 slivers of orange peel. Rub the pieces together, two at a time, to release the fragrant oils. Then, set peels into the pitcher with the ginger. 

  3. Reserve the orange fruit to cut later for garnish or as a snack.

  4. Heat 3 cups of water. Once it just starts to boil, remove from heat (or turn off kettle).

  5. Place the 2 Hendrick’s Tea House black tea bags in the pitcher with the orange peels and ginger.

  6. Carefully pour the hot water into the pitcher. Place a heat-safe plate or cover overtop the pitcher to lock in the heat. Allow the ingredients to steep for 5 minutes.

  7. Remove the cover. Pour the pitcher over mugs with a strainer to remove the tea bags, ginger, and orange peels from the pitcher. Or, use a slotted spoon prior to pouring the tea to remove the steeped items.

  8. Once the tea is in the mugs, add sugar or honey to taste. 

  9. (optional) Serve with fresh orange slices or candied orange pieces

  10. (optional) Place mini gingerbread cookies for serving with the tea. 

  11. Enjoy!
