Ginger, Lime & Honey Tea

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to feel warm and comfortable at home. Yes, we can have the best central heating and wood fire place in the world, but when I say warm I meant the warmth you receive from your life partner and children. I always count my blessing to have such an understanding and patient husband to go home to and although nothing beats having your own children, I’m quite contented with my 2 guinea pigs and a colorful conure as part of my nuclear family for the moment.

A small ritual my husband and I share just before bed time is to have a cup of tea instead of the norm of drinking warm milk. There were nights that I used the herbal tea bags but if I in a serious need of warmth and comfort, I will always resort to the homemade ones. One of my homemade favorites is ginger and lime tea which I have been brewing excessively of late. Just to make sure my husband doesn’t end up sleeping with a gingery asian stir fry on his side, I use uncrystallized preserved ginger in replacement of freshly grated ginger. This will impart a milder scent of the ginger and couple with a slice of lime and honey, not only it tastes wonderfully sweet and soothing, the scent itself is a natural aromatheraphy.
