Notes

Make sure that you drink this tea in moderation, as an excess of it can lead to acid reflux, insomnia, and other health conditions. The recommended consumption of ginger is 4-5 grams per day and not more than that. You can also try brown rice syrup as a sweetener in place of honey for a different and exciting taste!
