  • One 2-inch piece fresh ginger
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon brown rice syrup or pure maple syrup
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne

Prep time: 20 min • Yield: 4 cups

  1. Peel the ginger and slice it into coins about the thick-ness of a quarter.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the ginger to the water and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Squeeze the lemon juice into the ginger tea and whisk in the brown rice syrup and cayenne.
  4. Strain the tea through a fine-meshed strainer into a mug, saving the remaining tea.
