Delicious "Icy-Hot" Tea

What you need: 

1 cup water
1 teaspoon dried ginger root
1 teaspoon dried peppermint leaves (you can choose another mint if you wish)

What you do: 

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a kettle (or microwave for 3 minutes on high). Pour into mug. Steep peppermint and ginger root in the hot water for five minutes. Enjoy!
I like to play around with my teas and mix them, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. It has the spicy kick of ginger, but then the peppermint comes in and cools the throat (hence "icy-hot"). The peppermint also adds some flavor to the ginger root, which aside from its spice is a tad bland as tea.

i wonder, can i use dried ground ginger?

I don't see why not but you may want to use a 1/2-teaspoon instead (estimating here). I'll have to try this with lime juice sometime (I love lime).


i've made this before adding lime. it was good and spicy. i've heard it's good for digestion.
